Guitar Hero Put to Rest, Ends Production

The popular Guitar Hero will soon be laid to rest although the company initially planned for a 2011 release.

Activision through an official statement said:

"Due to continued declines in the music genre, the company will disband Activision Publishing's Guitar Hero business unit and discontinue development on its Guitar Hero game for 2011…These decisions are based on the desire to focus on the greatest opportunities that the company currently has to create the world's best interactive entertainment experiences."

The halting of the production of this music game was attributed to poor sales. And aside from Guitar Hero, the same company has also stopped the development of an action game called True Crime: Hong Kong this year.

But the effect of this news is most devastating not to all those who love Guitar Hero or music games, but to Activision’s 500 employees who will laid off.
