Things are rough at Activision apparently, the game publisher is taking a long hard look at its franchises, and nothing is safe. The Guitar Hero franchise has been around for a long time and helped bring the music genre to the forefront.
Sales of the title have been lacking and Activision has now announced that it has killed the franchise off and is disbanding the dev team. Activision blames the "continued decline in the music genre" as the reason for killing the franchise off.
GuitarHero isn’t the only game being ended either, True Crime: Hong Kong development has ceased. Activision says the development for new titles on both franchises is over.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
