Activision announced on Tuesday that they will be dissolving the Guitar Hero business unit. This means that the Guitar Hero 2011 game and the DJ Hero 2011 game are no longer in production. They went on and further said that they will continue to support all “Hero” games that have all ready been released. Activision stated that the reason for this unfortunate decision was the declining sale in the music genre over the last two years.
