A good start to the year alchnenkoy Activision! First publisher in mid-January, closed down the racing forge Bizarre Creations, and now - to clip the wings to several studios, canceling the development of an entire mountain projects. The first death of the brave fallen True Crime: Hong Kong (PC, PS3, Xbox 360), which, frankly, we have not heard anything since last August. The reason for the cancellation of development and so unexpected funeral was redefining the values in the ranks of Activision Publishing and the desire to focus on the more `ambitious and large-scale projects`. In other words, True Crime: Hong Kong did not reach the level of quality and to work to the most contemporary `sand` game - it would be easily laid on the blade other representatives of the genre. And once the game has no chance to attract the attention of mass player, it is not the destiny of True Crime: Hong Kong to see the shiny shelves. What will be the studio United Front Games after the abolition of the development? According to rumors, it has faced a wave of layoffs, and soon she can and does close its doors. Other victims - a music franchise Guitar Hero, and long-located in a steep dive Tony Hawk. Activision has officially announced that this year it will not release a single game in the series, Guitar Hero, DJ Hero and Tony Hawk. And all the projects that are under development - have been canceled. There is nothing surprising - the musical genre have not brought the company a lot of money every year it becomes harder and harder to sell the projects under the brand of GH. Similarly, with Tony Hawk - last year`s Tony Hawk: Shred failed in sales, so Activision sees no sense to spend money on creating new simulators skateboarder. Although the hardest hit Guitar Hero-suite - in the studio Vicarious Visions, and Freestyle Games hosted a parade of layoffs. Activision also completely disbanded unit responsible for the planning of new music games and manages all the studios who worked on the GH. In short, the franchise Guitar Hero is in a state of clinical death. No new games and not planned. Activision is nothing wrong with that sees no. Bobby Kotick sure that the mass burial of the projects will help publishers save a lot of money and invest it in developing more advanced online directions. And, of course, confirm the status of number one publisher in the world
