Reports Indicate Guitar Hero Is No More, Activision Pulls Plug

Reports are indicating that Activision has decided to pull the plug on the Guitar Hero franchise following dismal sales of Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, the most recent installment into the franchise.

Eurogamer understands that severe cuts have also been made at Freestyle Games, the developer behind DJ Hero and Vicarious Visions, who created Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock on the Wii.

This move indicts a huge restructuring for the mega-publisher, as both brands were big earners in the past. In December, the publisher, according to Eurogamer, had confirmed that both games would return in 2011. That now seems exceedingly unlikely.
