Get Ready to Party with DJ Hero 2 this October

August 16, 2010 Written by Jonathan Leack

DJ Hero 2 has had a late 2010 release date planned since its announcement back in June. Fans of the first game have been anxiously waiting as seemingly more tracks are confirmed every week. Thankfully, a release date has finally been set in stone.

Activision has given a release date for DJ Hero with the North American version coming on October 19th while the European version will release on October 22nd. These dates land about a week before the one-year anniversary of the original DJ Hero’s release, so chances are that this latest franchise will become a yearly ordeal similar to other popular Activision products.

DJ Hero 2 will feature dozens upon dozens of artists ranging from rap artists such as Eminem to techno with DJ Tiesto. The game will also feature new additions for the series including microphone support and much improved freestyle capability. While the release date may be a bit sooner than expected, fans of the first title should feel right at home.
