Guitar Hero not canned, just on hiatus

The series just pauses for breath...

Activision has announced that we have not seen the last of the Guitar Hero franchise, they have just put it to bed for a while.

Earlier this year Activision closed down the part of their business that dealt with the Guitar Hero games which included calling time on the DJ Hero franchise as well.

Acti's Dan Winters said: "Just to clarify, were just putting Guitar Hero on hiatus, were not ending it. Were releasing products out of the vault well continue to sustain the channel, the brand wont go away. Were just not making a new one for next year, thats all."

This is unsurprising as Guitar Hero III remains the biggest release in the US pipping even Call of Duty Black Ops and Modern Warfare 2 to the post.

Thanks Edge Online.
