Striking buy cheap wow gold the death knell for a once hot music game business, Activision Blizzard on Wednesday said it will disband Guitar Hero and scrap development of a Guitar Hero title slated for this year.
At the same time, the Santa Monica company told analysts a conference call to announce fourth quarter results that it will invest heavily in creating an online service dubbed BeachHead for an existing video game franchise, Call of Duty.
Activision, which provided little detail on the upcoming service, also dropped hints about a new product it plans to announce next week at Toy Fair in New York, as well as a new multiplayer online title from its Blizzard Entertainment studio in Irvine. Executives declined to further explain the new projects.
Meanwhile, Activision said it plans to lay off about 500 workers, roughly 7% of its workforce, associated with Guitar Hero and other games for casual players. The publisher also announced it has axed True Crime: Hong Kong, a "shooter" game modeled after Take Two Interactive Software blockbuster Grand Theft Auto franchise.
"To be blunt, it just wasn going to be good enough," said Eric Hirshberg, head of Activision publishing business.
The double barreled announcements of new projects and canceled titles highlight the hit driven nature of the video game in which consumers flitter from one fad to another. Two years ago, Guitar Hero generated more than a billion dollars in revenue for Activision. Now, dancing games and online are all the rage.

The forecast came in lower than most Wall Street analysts had been expecting, triggering an 8% slide in the company stock price.
Activision shares were also depressed by investor concern over the concentration of the company revenue in just two franchises, Call of Duty and World of Warcraft, said John Taylor, an analyst with Arcadia Investment Corp. in Portland, Ore.
