Guitar Hero 6 Now 'Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock'

By Chris Faylor, May 28, 2010 2:00pm PDT Once code-named Guitar Hero 6, this year's entry in the popular music game franchise is now officially titled Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, maker Activision has confirmed.

While an official release date has yet to be confirmed by Activision, the two retailers the company links to--GameStop and Amazon--list PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii versions of Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock for release on September 21, 2010.

This year's entry is said to focus more on rock and roll, with project lead Brian Bright telling Nintendo Power that "one of the things we really wanted to do was capture some of that soul that personally I thought the first three games had."

  • The time has come to stop trying to unload new disc based and new hardware encrusted music video games. I think, hate to say it, is either to just keep everything as an online store through either your console or your personal computer OR A subscription online based service where you subscribe to " guitar hero online music store" and add it into the current rockband market place on 360. 10 bucks a month with acces to all old and new content, download as much as you want but have a reaccuring fee. Stop with the hardware enhancements and bundles and such. I know not everyone is connected to the Internet, but I am tired of these new archaic releases. It's not just activision, either, that's the problem. Fucking rock band keyboard, where is that going!?!?!

    • Hey, at least Rockband/Hamonix is doing something new each year. Guitar Hero's best new thing recently was allowing multiple of one instrument type. I can't wait to get a keytar and experience new types of music/content with that. Also, Rockband series has FAR less releases, especially if you only deal with the core series (Rockband 1, 2 and 3). Guitar Hero's yearly release schedule has been a little rediculous. Even still, I end up buying most Guitar Heros and Rockbands.

      What I think needs to happen is a separation of the music license from the game license. You buy the track once and then you buy the ability to use it in rockband or guitar hero as separate purchases (depending on who had adapted it to the game, sometimes it's both and other times only 1). And with the guitar hero music editor in game, maybe they could let you program your own track against that song if you have the music license.
