Just a few short years ago, as you’re sure to know, rhythm based games rulled the airwaves. However, after seeing an influx of different releases (from Guitar Hero, in particular) the market was overwhelmed and the buzz quickly died off – not before the Guitar Hero franchise made it all the way to Guitar Hero 5, that is.
Well, here we are almost 5 year’s after the original Guitar Hero’s November 8th, 2005 release and the hype has died down so much that Activision has announced their plans to completely shutter the franchise and their staff that develops it. This, quite obviously, means that there won’t be any more Guitar Hero games in the pipeline marking the end of an era.
Make note that despite featuring similar gameplay, Guitar Hero is not associated with Rock Band therefore the latter will live on.
