Yeah, I’m a bit late in posting this (okay, a MONTH late but you know what they say, right?).
Activision Blizzard, that much beloved (and disliked?) company, announced last month that it would no longer be continuing Guitar Hero. *sigh* And I was planning to learn more (and learn how to play more) about the game. Guess I’ll just be content with the first two installment of the games. =(
Here’s the news from CNN.com:
The video game “Guitar Hero,” once believed to be helping revive rock a few years ago in the hip-hop era, will jam no longer.
Activision Blizzard Inc. announced Wednesday it will cease publishing the game this year.
“Due to continued declines in the music genre, the company will disband Activision Publishing’s ‘Guitar Hero’ business unit and discontinue development on its ‘Guitar Hero’ game for 2011,” the company said in a statement.
The decision was “based on the desire to focus on the greatest opportunities that the company currently has to create the world’s best interactive entertainment experiences,” the firm said.
“So bye-bye fake guitar playing guy…”
