Oh what a surprise! Activision has broken the habit of a lifetime by announcing a sequel to one of it's music games. The evil publisher has never released a sequel or spin-off in its life, so we're all very surprised here. Unfunny sarcasm aside, DJ Hero 2 is now a thing that is official. Yeeeeah boy!
The "shark jump" of music games is being given a second chance to do what the first game did not and capture the market's attention. As the music game business appears to face a steep decline, Activision refuses to accept that its biggest cash cow may be dying.
Activision let the news slip by offering a lucky unknown "musician" a chance to appear in "a future installment of DJ Hero," at the music event MIDEM 2010. This is in addition to DJ David Guetta stating he was working on stuff for the next game as well. So, if you didn't get enough of hearing some classic songs thoroughly butchered, you'll get another crack of the whip sometime in the future. We reckon sooner rather than later.
That's what Activision does, after all.
