Well, this isn't exactly shocking.
Just about everyone is seeking to cash in on the music/video game blockbuster crossover, and an example of that is the upcoming Guitar Hero: Aerosmith , which is scheduled to release at the end of this month. But you didn't think Aerosmith would be the last band to capitalize, did you? Heck no; according to GameSpot, Activision has filed with the SEC to produce Guitar Hero: Metallica , which should become available in "fiscal 2009." Here's the statement from the publisher's report:
"In fiscal 2009, we plan to publish Guitar Hero: On Tour for the NDS; Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, Guitar Hero: Metallica, and Guitar Hero IV across multiple platforms."
For those who don't know, the fiscal year will end on March 31, 2009, so that means this new GH should hit stores early next year. Much like Guitar Hero: Aerosmith , we expect the game to follow the course of the legendary metal band's career, from the smallest venues to the biggest arenas. Of course, there will likely be other music as well, although we haven't seen any confirmed tracks as of yet. Yep, Guitar Hero is bigger than sliced bread, and there's no telling how many more bands will sign up for an interactive go-round with Activision.
