Activision's Kotick confirms DJ Hero

Slip of the tongue in Davos.

Activision Blizzard boss Bobby Kotick has announced - apparently inadvertently - that DJ Hero is in development and due out in 2009.

Speaking to CNBC from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Kotick mentioned the game in answer to a question about innovation.

"We have this product called DJ Hero coming out later this year, which is a turntable that you actually can play competitively and spin discs and mix songs," he said.

Up to now, DJ Hero has only been rumoured based on a trademark filing and speculation that B-Boy developer Freestyle Games had been bought out by Activision to work on it.

We were excited enough by the prospect to include it in our Coming Attractions series as one of the five most interesting music games of the coming year.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
