DJ Hero 2, Band Hero 2 In the Works

on November 13, 2009 4:40 PM

Did you think Activision went a bit overboard with all their Hero games this year, releasing multiple games on almost every platform known to mankind?  Not only did they have half a dozen Guitar Hero titles (maybe more?  I lost count), they also introduced DJ Hero and Band Hero recently, which have met with lower-than-expected sales so far.  If you were thinking that, know that Activision was right there with you.

MCV spoke to one of the Hero franchise’s big-wigs who said that they were working on new incarnations of DJ Hero and Band Hero, but will not be introducing as many new SKUs in 2010 as they did in this calender year.  That being said, I still don’t think we’ll see any shortage of games in this genre anytime soon, and Activision is a big reason why, regardless of your feelings toward the company as a whole.

I still haven’t given DJ Hero a shot, but it looks like a lot of fun – it’s too bad I don’t feel the need to have yet another plastic peripheral cluttering up my apartment.  I could stand to see another Band Hero, though.  Just please, for the love of all that is good, don’t ever think about putting Miley Cyrus in the game.  I won’t buy it on principle alone.  Activision, you have been warned.
