French DJ David Guetta Unofficially Confirms DJ Hero 2
DJ Hero was one of our favorite games of 2009, garnering several music-related Game of the Year Award nominations. Therefore, we're certainly happy to hear about a sequel.
All these "Hero" spin-offs may not survive in the long run, but you can bet that Activision will attempt to keep them all popular for as long as humanly possible. And besides, DJ Hero sold relatively well and a whole lot of people would be annoyed if they only had the opportunity to use that nifty turntable once. Well, it's highly unlikely Activision would pass on a sequel but at least we've got an unofficial confirmation from French DJ David Guetta, as reported by Destructoid. He says he's "going to work on the No. 2 version" of DJ Hero, which isn't too surprising considering he contributed to the original. It seems that just about anything Activision touches in the music realm turns to gold these days, but that doesn't mean all their innovative attempts are successful. Tony Hawk: Ride bombed out big time but we try to look at the positives 'round here, and there's no doubt that we got a big winner with DJ Hero. You may not like stuff like Guitar Hero: Van Halen but you might not say that if they suddenly produced a special GH iteration with your favorite band in the spotlight.
We'll let you know when Activision wants to make this official. Don't be surprised to see DJ Hero 2 slated for a holiday 2010 launch.
