Band Hero 2 Announced

The CEO of Activision, Dan Rosensweig, announced last year that 2010 will see the launch of the next-gen Guitar Hero titles including DJ Hero 2, Guitar Hero 6 and Band Hero 2 (whoever is in charge of the new-game-naming-department deserves a raise!).

Fans may be wary of new game releases because the criticism that has been fired at Activision in the past for releasing too many games (6 GH games in 2009!) is based on fans wanting to improve their gameplay experience through DLC and not through having to buy and updated version of the game every 6 months. Dan did answer there critics saying that Activision will concentrate on improving their DLC content and concentrating on that much more heavily in 2010.

Currently there is a lot of DLC coming out for the Guitar / Band Hero titles and lets hope this is set to continue, but is this the DLC you wanted to see? What tracks would you like to see on the download list, or are you one that would prefer to see a new title come out instead of more DLC? Let us know by leaving a comment below!

There are no more details on Band Hero 2 just yet but as they come out we will dutifully report them.

    […] More major title releases will not please fans of the series who have already criticized the company for its seemingly relentless release schedule, most fans would only be in favour of new game releases if they contained major improvements in the game play or features. Releasing a new title every few months if a very expensive way of buying some new songs, some of which you would not own out of choice,  what fans wanted to see is more support for downloadable content, only paying for the songs you will enjoy playing, which is exactly what CEO Dan Rosensweig suggested was the stategry.

    I have to agree that the DLC content should be upgraded. Unfortunately rockband has a much larger and better library. However, I am a hardcore GH fan…please bring out more games. 6 n 6 months is excessive, maybe 1 a year.
