After the rumours about Harmonix bringing back Rock Band series for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, another music rhytm video game is preparing to return. Activision’s Guitar Hero is ready for a new game this year, according to two separate sources that also sustain an eventual reveal at this year’s E3.
The new Guitar Hero game will take a “more realistic” approach compared to the previous titles. Both crowds and performers will be modelled realistically, and the game will also release with a new line of peripherals, sources say. Last time when a Guitar Hero title was launched, it was 2010 and the game was called Warriors of Rock.
“We don’t comment on rumour or speculation, but have previously said, that as one of the most beloved entertainment franchises, we would only bring Guitar Hero back if we developed the right innovations to usher the franchise into the new generation of gaming,” Activision told Kotaku UK in response to these rumours.
