Gamsutra reports that Harmonix is now working on a new music project
, confirming their absence from any future Guitar Hero
games. From the article: "[Harmonix producer Daniel Sussman] added specifically: 'We are instead working on a different music game project, one that is a bigger and more ambitious endeavor than we felt we could pursue within the bounds of the Guitar Hero franchise.' Further specific details on exact subject and publisher for the game are not being released at this time."
One can only hope that Neversoft's hand at the wheel will not result in any shakeups in this truly excellent series.
