Windows Central recently reported on Activision CEO Bobby Kotick’s comment on the revival of Guitar Hero during an internal meeting. Kotic namechecked Guitar Hero and stated, “The re-emergence of Guitar Hero and other things would not be possible without the different types of resources. And so, you know, just the endless possibilities for the future that are just incredibly exciting.”
Kotic has mentioned reviving the Guitar Hero franchise before, during an interview with Venture Beat. So, the possibility of a new Guitar Hero game is pretty high, but again, nothing is officially confirmed yet. During this same town hall meeting, Kotic also talked about future tech and brought up Elon Musk’s Neuralink and VR. He heavily hinted at the Guitar Hero franchise when talking about Activision’s previous transformative video games. Pitfall, River Raids, and Kaboom! also came up.
The Guitar Hero series’s influence can still be felt in our pop culture, and there is a dedicated fanbase that is still waiting for a next-gen Guitar Hero game, so it will be interesting to see what might happen in the future with the particular franchise.
Commenting on working with Microsoft, Kotic stated, “A big part of what I’ve seen in Microsoft is research. And they do development in areas that are extraordinary. And so being able to tap into their AI and machine learning capability, the data analytics, new ways of thinking about graphics — I just see unlimited potential for what we do,”
And when it comes to accessibility, Kotic expressed, “The accessibility that’s going to come from less and less expensive processing that will be more widely available, and inexpensively available, is going to just create more and more opportunities for the amazingly talented people that we have here.”
From all this, Guitar Hero fans can assume that the next major Guitar Hero is going to provide you with a very unique and futuristic experience, and it will try to do what the classic Guitar Hero games did for the previous generation.
