Activision has sadly announced that the upcoming reboot of True Crime has been canned and that the Guitar Hero and DJ Hero series’ have also been trashed.

On the subject of Guitar Hero, Activision had the following to say: “Due to continued declines in the music genre, the company will disband Activision Publishing’s Guitar Hero business unit and discontinue development on its Guitar Hero game for 2011,” explained a statement from the publisher.”

And on True Crime: Hong Kong: “The company also will stop development on True Crime: Hong Kong. These decisions are based on the desire to focus on the greatest opportunities that the company currently has to create the world’s best interactive entertainment experiences.”

Guitar Hero fans will certainly be disappointed, and True Crime: Hong Kong looked very promising. It’s also sad that people could potentially be losing their jobs.
