Guitar Hero Developer Moving on to the FPS Genre

April 6, 2011 Written by Paulmichael Contreras

With the exceptions of Spider-Man in 2000 and Gun in 2005, Neversoft was all about the Tony Hawk and later Guitar Hero series of games since the turn of the millennium. However, the developer may be moving on to a genre new to them.

When Activision canceled the Guitar Hero series of rhythm games, it left Neversoft with no concrete project to work on. According to some postings spotted on their jobs page, the developer is looking for talent to work on an unnamed FPS title. Could it be a spiritual successor to Gun in the form of a Western-themed FPS, or simply another spin-off of the Call of Duty series? There really is no telling at this point, but rest assured PlayStation LifeStyle will let you know any new tidbits about this as it develops.
