DJ Hero 3 cancelled alongside Guitar Hero

Well, I guess that's easier than just trying to make the games better, so they sell more. :roll:

Viz top tips:

Developing studios working for Activision. Make sure your games contain all, or a combination of, these words in their title: Of. Duty. Call. This should at least postpone any pesky "canning" plans.

In this instance, that's an ignorant statement. DJ Hero 2 reviewed very well. It was a good game, just didn't sell enough bazillions for Bobby and his band of slime to deem it worth continuing.

Aw me is a sad panda.
Although I've yet to get round to buying the second one I really loved the first one, had high hopes for the future of the series. Hopefully the developer finds another publisher and continues

Activision own Freestyle and the DJ Hero IP. DJ Hero is finished forever.

tbh ... It's getting a bit silly now ... It's not like Activision dont have a few bob ... I can understand them getting rid of GH as that had run its course ... But DJH had at least another game in it ...

I suppose they can just carry on releasing mixes for it ... That would at least be something.

But as stated its all getting a bit silly now

Oh well that sucks. The bit at the end of the article gives me a glimmer of hope though! DJ Hero is the only music genre game I really liked

Well now you're getting me wrong, I'm a MASSIVE DJ Hero fan. However, if Activision don't think it sold well enough, maybe work out why rather than just can the whole idea!
