Guitar Hero, DJ Hero sequels coming

Music updates hitting in autumn.

Activision has announced that Guitar Hero 6 will be hitting store shelves this autumn, with a new DJ Hero game coming "soon after".

The new games were mentioned in a conference call discussing Activision's stronger-than-expected first quarter financial results.

Activision promised "new and innovative gameplay modes" and a "significantly enhanced social gaming experience" for both titles.

The company expects increased profitability for its music games this year as the market compresses and "moves from sales of higher-priced peripherals to realising the improved economics of a focus on software sales".
