DJ Hero 2
DJ Hero Series is Also Canned by Activision
Written By
View author's profile

It's somewhat obvious this one, given the recent sharp decline in the music genre's popularity, but along with Guitar Hero being given the chop by Activision, DJ Hero has also been shelved as the publisher chooses to focus more upon its lucrative Call of Duty, Starcraft and Warcraft properties.

Apparently, "considerable licensing and manufacturing costs" are cited as the main reason for ceasing to make more 'Hero' titles, as they're simply not profitable any more. However, Acti will continue to support its existing library of downloadable tracks, although there won't be any further add-ons being issued going forward.

So, that's both the Guitar Hero and DJ Hero franchises biting the dust then, along with True Crime: Hong Kong, which also saw the axe fall upon its development as part of Activision's recent cull. The fate of DJ Hero dev, FreeStyle Games however, is currently unknown, as the company investigates possibilities. No jobs have been lost at present, thankfully.

"We're actively working with Activision on various options going forward for the studio," said FreeStyle founders David Osbourn, Jamie Jackson and Chris Lee [via GamesIndustry.biz]. "No decisions have been taken at this stage. We appreciate everyone's support through this process and will be as open and transparent as possible as soon as we know more."

Hopefully, no job losses will be made, as it could cost Activision between $35 and $50 million, and more to the point, an estimated 500 jobs could be lost. Fingers crossed that this doesn't happen.

Man activision always closing down stuff as much as I hate to say it they need to close down call of duty. So we can get better games out there but that will never happen because gaming a business and cod makes them the money so that's that. I would do the same thing prob if i was Booby Kiotok.

This has only pretty much started as series.. I thought they'd at least produce another 10 before they gave up?!

I have a feeling something is going down at Activision with all this going.. wouldn't be surprised if we hear about job loses next!

I can safely say that now both Guitar Hero and DJ Hero are gone, I will never buy another Activision game. Guitar Hero and DJ Hero were the only games I bought by them. COD, in ny opinion, is a pile of wank.

The problem is since Activision acquired Blizzard they make more money a month off just World of Warcraft subscriptions than they do off some of their lesser titles.

Let's face it Blizzard is a juggernaut and it won't be stopped. They will live off their name alone. Coupled with the incredible success of CoD in the past half decade or so Activision tightly has their heads shoved up their own asses. And they think it smells great too!

If Activision didn't feel the need to release a sequel every year then these franchises would still be alive. Who would buy the same exact guitar hero game every year with only the addition of some new songs. They do the same thing with cod too so it's only a matter of time before that gets canned.

If they seriously stop making good games like dj hero and true crime to focus on the repetive and boring gameplay that is cod, I'm not buying another game with the stupid activision logo on it; sorry to all the good developpement team that work for them and don't get the respect they deserve. From now, activision knows where i can put my money, in my wallet.

I played DJ Hero on my brother-in-law's Wii shortly after it came out and it was actually pretty enjoyable gameplay. My main problem was the music was exactly my cup of tee. But I had a fun time nonetheless.

I hope FreeStyle games doesn't get shut down, just because people loosing jobs because their bosses over saturated the market, inducing consumer fatigue leading to declined sales is not cool (holy run on sentence, Batman!).

They ran Guitar Hero into the ground by releasing a new one every 6 month, how do they figure they not going to do the same with Call of Duty. How many CoD games do they have coming out in the next year, 3?

@34 Umm.... I could be mistaken so I'll check a few different sites. Nope. My initial thought was right. There is one Call of Duty coming in 2011.

Something else I kind of wonder; do you guys think that Bungie hears all this crap going on at Activision and then ponder "What the fuck where we thinking?"

I loved Guitar Hero and DJ Hero, but I'm glad they're being shelved. The oversaturation will have finally stopped and if and when a new Hero game comes out, developers will have had time to come up with something to make the game actually good again. Activision relys on quantity over quality. That's how great game series like Guitar Hero get run into the ground. Never been a huge Call of Duty fan, but if Activision is relying entirely on CoD for console gaming (I'm not counting WoW, Starcraft, or Diablo because they're all PC exclusives), CoD will oversaturate the market, too.

Yes it's true that the market was being over-saturated with Guitar Hero games, but, if done right music games are great fun.

It's the band-centric games that really kill with the ability to offer DLC (something Activision hasn't handled well with Guitar Hero anyways).

The DJ Hero games were a lot of fun for me and I find it a shame that the series is gone. I know full well we won't be seeing too much DLC incoming. Activision would much rather release shite DLC and release a new game every 8 months.

Any time people lose jobs it's a shame.

If Guitar Hero went back to being focus on what its name suggested - a guitar only game, it would probably do much better. I know once i had played Guitar Hero: World Tour it just didn't feel fun anymore, and I didn't get a Guitar Hero game after that.

Still play Guitar Hero 2 & 3 though, they were brilliant and still are.

This is hilarious, so here's what I'm thinking, Harmonix made GH a great series, it's been milked now. Poor Free Style, they're a great and innovative developer, I really hope there aren't any layoff, they've got a damn fine development team. And Activision boots up the new COD development team along with yearly enstallments. After Infinity Ward was partially dissolved COD has been on the downhill slope. Treyarch is a fine developer, I downplayed the crap out of Black Ops before it came out, but when I got to playing it, I've got to admit, they did a fine job. But the multiplayer were just tweaks done to the masterpiece that Infinity Ward made. This series is on the downhill slope, its going to get milked till it's dry. I can see Battlefield 3 or Respawn Entertainment will be on top.

Im not too sure if DJ hero was a good idea.

Ive noticed alot of posts on multiple sites that even True Crime being cut that everyone was looking forward to it.. and i thought DJ hero was a pretty big game as well?

The guitar hero series was definately the right franchise to end.. That crap hasn't gave decent number since GH3.

Now to get rid of tony hawk games and put true crime back in development!

The bad thing about focusing on Call of Duty games is that GuitarHero and TonyHawk both used to be on top of the world. Now they're dropped like bad habits. Relying on CoD and movie tie ins isn't a great business plan. Putting pressure on Blizzard to make more StarCraft and WarCraft games will ultimately result in a decline also. The reason their games are so profitable is because they don't cram a $60 price tag down our throats every 6 months. They take their time making the best possible product and the consumers know they'll get their money worth.
I wonder how long the "we won't charge to play CoD online" line will stand.

@50 You seem to be ignorant to how the game industry works. You basically have developers and publishers; developers do all the work, and publishers bark out the orders because they have the money. When Activision says, "make another Guitar Hero game and do it in 6 months," RedOctane has no choice but to comply. When RedOctane says, "but that's not enough time for a quality entry in the series," Activision says, "we don't give a crap, we're not making enough money."

@25 "Not reusing the same formula every-time" That is HILARIOUS because that is ALL Cod is, your stupidity makes me ROFL by the way, anyway on a good note Cod will DIE because Acti is saturating the market so that makes me a happy camper watching cod die so its time to sit back and enjoy the fireworks.

Never played DJ Hero, but will miss GH -- always a good cheap pickup at the pawn shop for some fun with friends. Weird to see the rhythm genre dying off though -- not like they did a lot of work on the graphics -- they just bought songs!

Activision bought out 19 music based titles in 5 years and most of them required buying extra peripherals to go with them. I for one wont miss this series as I just can't afford anymore pieces of plastic.

Im not really sad to see the Guitar Hero and DJ Hero series go. Im not going to lie, I do enjoy them but not that much. ( Except for my GH: Metallica, best gh game ever)

Activision is a good company. They have the Call of Duty series, Blizzard entertainment and other games to use. but sooner or later, they will get cut off. The CoD games get old sometimes. Black Ops was a complete fail to me. Activision went to Treyarch to make a game that I ended up breaking after just playing a few multiplayer games. Starcraft is great, so is WoW, but sooner or later CoD is going to die out and Starcraft and WoW will be all that they have left. Activision needs to pull thier heads and something out of their a** if they want to stay up and running in this gameing industtry.
