Activision planning ahead for DJ Hero sequel

Activision is well-known/notorious for pumping out the sequels. Just look at the Guitar Hero and Call of Duty franchises. It might as well change the company name to Now That’s What I Call Games, Inc. So it shouldn’t surprise anyone to hear that the publisher is already looking towards a sequel for their upcoming rhythm game DJ Hero. According to, Activision-owned developer FreeStyleGames has already partnered up with an unidentified UK-based indie developer, presumably to work on the next DJ Hero. Meanwhile, the publisher itself has supposedly reached out to world-renowned and award-winning DJ Qbert for a potential roster spot. Activision was able to score top talent such as DJ Shadow, Grand Master Flash, and Daft Punk for their first DJ Hero foray, and there’s no doubt adding Qbert would be yet another coup for Bob-o‘s burgeoning turntable-centric series.

DJ Hero comes out in North America on October 27 for the 360, PS3, PS2, and Wii.
