Activision is being much more conservative with its music game releases in 2010. On its first quarter 2010 conference call this afternoon, the company confirmed Guitar Hero 6 and "the next DJ Hero" (Activision didn't call it DJ Hero 2) are on track for a release sometime this fall.
Guitar Hero 6 will be released prior to the next DJ Hero, however. Activision said the turntable follow-up would be available "soon after" the release of Guitar Hero 6.
Activision said both games would feature "more great original music, new and innovative gameplay modes and a significantly enhanced social gaming experience," and plenty of downloadable content.
Both games will most likely see a proper unveiling next month at E3 in Los Angeles.
