Activision Kills Guitar Hero, Diablo III Not Coming This Year, Bungie's New Game
Posted on Wednesday, February 9 @ 14:43:31 Eastern by Nicholas Tan
Following layoffs in Vicarious Visions over the last several months, an Activision investor press release now confirms the death of the Guitar Hero franchise:
It also seems that Diablo III will not see a release date this year, regardless of GameStop's pending release date for the game of November 2nd, 2011:
Activision, after seeing their numbers bolstered by Call of Duty: Black Ops and World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, will be focusing their efforts on those franchises instead.
Bungie's new title also seeks to rake in the cash, as "a new property from Bungie and an innovative new universe with broad appeal that will be revealed at Toy Fair later this week and will bring the world of toys, video games and the Internet together in an unprecedented way".
Activision has earned a net income of $418 million dollars this year, compared to last year's $113 million.
