RIP Guitar Hero

Activision has cancelled the popular Guitar Hero franchise and has dissolved its dev team. This is due to the declining sales in the music game genre. I think it is a sad day for anyone that enjoys Guitar Hero or Rock Band since it leaves Rock Band as the sole game that has the whole band experience. I’m hoping that they will revive this franchise in a few years and not churn out a new game every year due to market saturation.

  1. Not too surprising given how hard they tried to milk the franchise. Rock Band is certain to enjoy more followers now so they must be happy!
