Virtual rock gods may once again be able to jam out with their friends from the comfort of their living or local bar as Activision’s Guitar Hero franchise is rumored to be making a return on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
According to a source speaking with PSU that’s located close to where the game is being recorded, “extras” have been spotted going in and out of the location, with one of these extras revealing what’s been going on. “Basically for weeks they’ve been recording live crowds for all songs on the next Guitar Hero. Today all the extras are being dressed up all emo-style for one of the songs.”
It’s been four years since the last iteration of the Guitar Hero franchise, Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, was released. Music-based games are still pretty popular, especially with the release of Harmonix’s Disney’s Fantasia: Music Evolved, so the Guitar Hero series making a comeback would certainly be welcomed in my boox. So long as Activision doesn’t skimp on the quality of the game and includes an even larger song list in the new game and maybe including additional downloadable content as free upgrades, although I know that won’t be likely.
Remember, this is a rumor, so don’t go out and buy a bunch of plastic instruments just yet.
