Activision Axes Guitar Hero Franchise for Good

No more Guitar Hero :(

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.

Guitar Hero 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.
