Activision: Guitar Hero is not dead yet Despite confirming they were shutting down the once popular Guitar Hero franchise, Activision has said today the series is just "on hiatus" and is not completely dead yet.
Dan Winters of Activision says the game could hit shelves again in the future if the publisher once again sees a chance for it to be successful.

Says the exec (via GI):

Actually, just to clarify, we're just putting Guitar Hero on hiatus, we're not ending it. We're releasing products out of the vault - we'll continue to sustain the channel, the brand won't go away. We're just not making a new one for next year, that's all.


The publisher had said in February that it was shutting down the game and moving resources to other franchises and titles.

Activision even disbanded all development for a new Guitar Hero title that was expected in time for the holidays.

Scored on the deal they're having on their games.

I think that is the case for every game...actually, for every product ever made...except for products too large for shelves. If they think they can make money on something, they try to sell it...that is how capitalism works!
