Put your mullet away and tell Slash to go home — Guitar Hero has strummed its last note.
Activision Blizzard announced Wednesday afternoon that it will close down its music video game division, which means the Guitar Hero franchise is toast. GH dies because of the massive declines in consumer purchases of music-genre games. You kidz ain’t buyin’ no mo’, apparently.
The Guitar Hero title that was scheduled for release this year has been shut down.
The Blizzard side of the company will see growth, however, as Activision Blizzard tackles a new MMO as well as Call of Duty projects.
What’s your take? Will you care about Guitar Hero’s demise? Do you still play Rock Band? Or have you transferred all your music energy to Dance Central and Just Dance?
