Activision Spinning Up DJ Hero Sequel

January 17, 2010 Written by Paulmichael Contreras

DJ Hero, the surprisingly good Guitar Hero spin-off that took on the DJing scene, has so far inched its way to around 1.8 million units sold across four platforms. It looks like more virtual DJing is headed our way.

As was hinted at a few weeks back by DJ Guetta, there is going to be a second DJ Hero game. A press release by Activision that was mentioning DJ Hero’s involvement in MIDEM 2010 (A French music business convention) leaked the following information:

“2010 DJ Hero will be hosting an exclusive Listening Session, providing one lucky undiscovered musician the priceless opportunity to have their winning song mixed, mastered and featured in a future installment of DJ Hero.”

So there you have it. Sequel confirmed! No word on if this latest installment will feature a specific DJ or be a more traditional music game, but the 1.8 million gamers who may be wondering if they bought a one-time-only accessory can breathe a bit easier now.
