In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Activision Kills Guitar Hero, Diablo III Not Coming This Year, Bungie's New Game

Posted on Wednesday, February 9 @ 14:43:31 Eastern by


Following layoffs in Vicarious Visions over the last several months, an Activision investor press release now confirms the death of the Guitar Hero franchise:

Due to continued decline 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.  The company also will stop development on True Crime: Hong Kong. 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.

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:

Since Blizzard Entertainment has not confirmed a launch date for its next global release, the company's calendar year outlook at this time does not yet include a new game from Blizzard in 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.
