According to Gamespot, trademark applications filed by Activision have revealed that spinoffs of the popular Guitar Hero series entitled “Guitar Villian” and “Drum Villian” are currently in the works. This comes only days after the news that an 80’s edition of the game is headed for a spring release.
While this does not necessarily mean that these games will actually see the light of day, it does provide some insight into the direction that Activision / RedOctane plan to take with the series. This is also true of the trademarks RedOctane filed last year for games entitled “Keyboard Hero,” “Drum Hero,” and “Band Hero.”
One thing is for certain – success means sequels, and Activision will be pimping the Guitar Hero franchise out for many years to come.
