Some Activision News

Well obviously last year was a ridiculous year on the Hero franchise of games, according to Kotaku, Activision last year released 25 rhythm based games, this year, only 2 franchises will see games released with 10 SKU's coming out between the two franchises, Guitar Hero and DJ Hero 2.

Also revealed today in that same article, the next Guitar Hero game will not be released at all on the PlayStation 2, ending another franchise's run on the best selling console to date.

We also have a more concrete date on the sequel to Tony Hawk: Ride, the back half of 2010 but my favorite part is the following quote "It took longer to optimize the hardware, leaving less time to optimize the software".

So you're telling me after "optimizing" your hardware it still stank as far as almost any reviewer or someone who has commented on this game has found and as a result the game suffered. How about next time get the board actually working and if it takes longer, delay the darn game, it's not like me needed another Tony Hawk game that fast.

Well Activision isn't wasting time now, in the space of less than a week they cut half of Radical Entertainment's (responsible for Prototype) staff, completely shut down Luxoflux (responsible for True Crime and Kung Fu Panada) and cut people at Neversoft and shut down RedOctane (created the plastic instruments used in Guitar Hero games) and Underground Development (responsible for Guitar Hero: Van Halen and BMX XXX). So in the space of less than a week, they shut down 3 studios and made cuts at 2 more with a good portion of the cuts affecting those making music games. Maybe if they hadn't soaked the market last year with endless games in that genre it wouldn't be doing so bad this year.

yeah I'm surprised that they cut stuff from Guitar Hero, I would think that they would want as much people working on that, as well as COD, but they're probably gonna want to keep people working on COD, especially since they wanna release one every year

As I mentioned on the Twitter, really disgusting to see Radical getting cut. I mean, whats up with that? Even companies making successful games are getting sent to the chopping block...
