In what’s going to be a massive disappointment for most of the wanna be rock stars, kids to young to be legally allowed in clubs and Kesha fans, Activision has some sad news.
The Publisher announced that they are dropping the DJ Hero and Guitar Hero games, putting an end to all those future
presidents music legends in the making in front of a sofa.
Activision lays most of the blame for dropping DJ Hero as well as Guitar Hero from the development list on poor sales of the last versions of these games.
As it happens, it’s not only DJ and Guitar Hero that suffer from this lack of interest, it’s going on all over the music related gaming world.
Frankly, I couldn’t care less about Guitar Hero or the record spinning simulator either.
Activision’s estimates see a decline in the market of the music based gaming all together so to them it made perfect sense to not give either of these an update.
I don’t really know what makes people interested or disinterested but I find this to be a bit of a surprise. Even though I’m not interested in buying either Guitar or DJ Hero, I know they both got some really good reviews.
When you leave the sphere of being a simple buyer or gamer and get down to what’s going on behind the scenes of music based games, you find out why the two will no longer have a new version.
Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg explained that while the games are selling relatively well, there’s no way they are profitable. This is because Guitar Hero and DJ Hero bring along much bigger licensing costs and efforts than any other sort of game.
That’s the whole killer, the economy of the gaming business. Therefore, the next time you want to play a new Guitar Hero and realize you can’t blame somebody from the Government.
Or the banks, they are definitely to blame for the gaming industry going wrong.
