It seems that the cash cow that is Activision just can't stop churning out all these new Guitar Hero titles. Gamespot reported that in one of Activision's recent SEC filings, the company mentioned that they intend to release Guitar Hero: Metallica in the 1st quarter of 2009.
The report stated that "In fiscal 2009, we plan to publish Guitar Hero: On Tour for the NDS; Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, Guitar Hero: Metallica, and Guitar Hero IV across multiple platforms".
So if Guitar Hero: Aerosmith and Guitar Hero: World Tour didn't satisfy your musical gaming needs, then surely Guitar Hero: Metallica will. Great news for Metallica fans worldwide but bad news for the wallet.
I can't quite shake the feeling that the frequency of these Guitar Hero titles is seriously going to affect the quality and improvements of the new titles. Similar engine with new songs? Seems like a bit of a cash in to me.
