Back in 2005, kids of all skill levels transformed into rockstars when the Guitar Hero video game was released. Complete with plastic guitars and a setlist of famous rock ‘n’ roll songs, the game spread a love of rock music throughout the younger generation.
After its initial launch, the various editions of Guitar Hero were released including Guitar Hero: World Tour and Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. The most recent version came out in 2015, but that could all be changing since Microsoft acquired Guitar Hero’s owning company Activision Blizzard.
“I was looking at the IP list, I mean, let’s go! King’s Quest, Guitar Hero… I should know this but I think they got HeXen,” Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer expressed to the Washington Post about his excitement over this new venture.
While it’s all still speculation, a new series of Guitar Hero could even further spark a new love of rock music for children and inspire future guitarists.
