Guitar Hero, DJ Hero DLC done after February
Activision confirms that downloadable content pipeline will dry up after this month.
Yesterday, Activision shocked the game industry by announcing it was disbanding its Guitar Hero business and not making any Hero games this year. However, during a postearnings release conference call, Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg appeared to say the flow of downloadable content for Guitar Hero games would continue.
Immediately after addressing the Guitar Hero situation, Hirshberg said, "What we'll do is focus our time and energies on marketing and supporting our strong catalog of titles and downloadable content, especially to new consumers, as the install base for hardware continues to grow."
However, now it appears Hirshberg was talking in a much more general sense and not addressing the Guitar Hero franchise specifically. A FAQ on the official DJ Hero website now clearly states that, after February, all new DLC for both the DJ Hero and Guitar Hero franchises will cease:
Are you still going to make new DLC for Guitar/DJ Hero?
We will release the previously announced DLC track and mix packs for February, but--unfortunately--we will not be able to release new DLC packs beyond what we already have.
Attempts to contact Activision for further clarification were unsuccessful as of press time. However, the FAQ appears to leave little doubt that the Guitar Hero and DJ Hero DLC pipeline will soon dry up. For more on what may be the last Guitar Hero DLC, check out GameSpot's coverage of the February Mega Pack, with metal-themed tunes from Children of Bodom, Black Label Society, Marilyn Manson, and Firewind.
