Dedicated Fans Get "New Content" For Guitar Hero And DJ Hero

When Guitar Hero and DJ Hero bit the dust, we heard future downloadable content was very much in question.

But as ShackNews noted, the official Twitter pages for both franchises in question have thanked gamers for their continued support, and said due to that support, "new content" would be released. At the Guitar Hero page, they specifically made the announcement after their Facebook page hit a million fans. Of course, many wonder if the Guitar Hero name is truly dead; most just assume it'll pop back up in the future at some point. For now, though, Activision says they just can't keep it profitable, as the music licenses were obviously killing them and...oh yeah, the games just aren't anywhere near as popular anymore. But if you're still playing your plastic instruments and having a great time, you'll be happy to know that fresh DLC should be on the way. Have you already mastered the available songs?

For my part, I'll be plenty happy to never see another music-related package at my door. That's really enough of that.

This is sort of the capacity you really want the franchise to continue anyways.

For anyone new to the franchise... there's like 20 titles to choose from to start. And for hardcore fans, they already have multiple versions of the game... just expand their content. I have a hard time believing they could really expand the gameplay aspect while keeping it afordable.

It might just be me, but new content -not a new release- should have been the main focus a long time ago. Hopefully for fans, the decision wasn't too late.

EDIT: Also, how many "hardcore" fans could there be to only sell 100k copies of the latest release?

Well it was fun while it lasted but if there's a franchise that can live on through dlc though, GH is it.

How else could they really continue the series? Sure, they could add in new instruments and whatnot, but disc-based releases for GH killed it. Nineteen releases in five years, with so much DLC that you'd have to be a millionaire to purchase all of it killed it. The DLC should continue, as there is a huge fanbase for these games (recent sales notwithstanding), and there are always more tracks to interest someone.
Peace.

its not gone for good it will be back eventually there just giving it a much needed vacation.
im sad to see it go, i really enjoyed playing them.
dunno why but ive always had more fun with GH then RB, even if its the same song i prefer to play it on GH.
i wish they would just release the first 2 as a HD collection, that would tide me over forever!

Never understood the desire to pay hundreds of dollars to play one game that allowed you to pretend to play music.

When I was younger we played this game for free, they called it, turn on the radio and play air guitar. Sure it didn't have the cartoon people and the flashy lights, but come on.
