Guitar Hero was once a shining star of a video game franchise, with each yearly installment generating more excitement than the last. Now the series is on indefinite hold. An internal Activision memo obtained by Giant Bomb poses a compelling question. "Isn't Call of Duty today just like Guitar Hero was a few years back?"
It's an intriguing start to a revealing document, granting insight into the publisher's feelings about what is undoubtedly one of its biggest money makers. It's one of two internal Activision memos obtained by Giant Bomb's Patrick Klepek following the announcement earlier this year that Guitar Hero's 2011 title was being cancelled and the series put on hold.
