Rumor: New Guitar Hero Game in the Works, Announcement Possibly Coming at E3 2015

February 24, 2015Written by Jason Dunning


Based on information received from two different sources, Kotaku UK is reporting that a new Guitar Hero game is in development.

According to one of those sources, this new Guitar Hero is set to be unveiled at E3, with a release happening before the end of 2015. They also say it will take a “more realistic” approach in terms of development, with characters looking more like real life people; new peripherals are being developed; and it could be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

When asked for comment, Activision gave the usual response when it comes to rumors, but they did add a little more:

We don’t comment on rumor 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.

This particular rumor joins another one, which says a new Rock Band is also in development.

Would you buy a new Guitar Hero if it came out this year on PS4?
