New Guitar Hero game to be announced at E3 – report

[/img]There is a new Guitar Hero game in development at Activision, and it’s set to be revealed at this year’s E3.

According to sources close to Kotaku, Activision is currently working on a new Guitar Hero game for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

The upcoming game’s visual style will be different from older releases in the franchise in that it will adopt a “more realistic” approach. An E3 reveal is said to be planned, according to one source.

New guitar peripherals will also be introduced. The game is due before the end of the year.

“We don’t comment on rumour or speculation, but have previously said, that as one of the most beloved entertainment franchises, we would only bring Guitar Hero back if we developed the right innovations to usher the franchise into the new generation of gaming,” an Activision spokesperson said when contacted by Kotaku.

Talk of an upcoming Rock Band game being developed for new-gen consoles has also been doing the rounds recently. It’s important not to mix up both franchises, though it would certainly not be surprising if both games were revealed and released in 2015.


Activision realizes Call Of Duty is a dying series so they decide to bring back an already dead series, LOL what?

Guitar Hero is good banter when you are drunk. Gets my vote.

Activision got greedy, over saturated GH over a very short space of time and the game lost it’s novelty. GH II and III were at the forefront of some great drunken nights back in the day. I’d be interested to see how they plan to bring it back and what they have changed and also what it can bring to the table what the previous games didn’t. If it’s not so much, the franchise will fall to the ground ungracefully like Pavman after two beers. I can’t see it being half as successful as it was at it’s peak previously but it could still interest some demographics.

u know I was really happy that guitar hero was coming back bc I have almost all there games then I kept reading and seen XBOX ONE and was like son of a bitc* and many more words :anguished:

Wonder how much the new gh controllers will cost…

I’m fine with this, simply because I used to love playing Guitar Hero.
Great for events & parties, or just wanting to have fun alone, with friends or family.

I bet over 100 bucks back in the day they were over 100 bucks on ps2 and they still are so im sure it will be like 300 for the game and a guitar knowing GH I hope it comes on xbox 360 tho bc I would pay that money
