DJ Hero's final DLC pack


Activision has launched the final downloadable track pack for DJ Hero 2.

The Ultra Mix Pack, on sale today, includes "House Music" by Benny Benassi (Remix by FreeStyleGames), "Sofi Needs a Ladder" by Deadmau5 (Remix by FreeStyleGames), and "We No Speak Americano" by Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP (Remix by FreeStyleGames).

It costs 640 Microsoft Points, $7.99 on PlayStation 3, and all tracks are available as downloadable singles for Wii for 300 Wii Points each.

Its launch marks the end of Activision's support for DJ Hero. The Hero brand, which includes Guitar Hero, is now on "hiatus" until an undisclosed time.

But the fate of DJ Hero developer FreeStyleGames remains undecided.

The UK studio was, as of February, in talks with owner Activision over its future.

"We continue positive discussions with Activision around possible routes for FreeStyleGames," design director David Osbourn, creative director Jamie Jackson and commercial director Chris Lee said in a joint statement.

"We have not reached an agreement as of today, however we are in continued dialogue and hope to have more news soon. Messages from the industry and gamers alike have been warmly received and we are incredibly grateful for the support."

Eurogamer broke the news that Activision had closed its Guitar Hero business, ending the Guitar Hero and DJ Hero franchises. The US giant also revealed plans to axe 500 jobs.
