Activision wields the axe on True Crime and Guitar Hero
Activision has confirmed that they have cancelled both Guitar Hero and the True Crime reboot, True Crime: Hong Kong.
The news came in an earnings release that due to restructuring Activision would be cancelling both series effective immediately with Call of Duty, StarCraft and World of Warcraft becoming the main focus of the super-publisher.
The announcement read: "...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 also will stop development on True Crime: Hong Kong. These decisions are 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 writing was on the wall for this news as Blur studio Bizarre Creations has already been closed by Activision at the beginning of the year.
