Rumor: Activision considering Guitar Hero TV show, tour


Brace yourselves. As the headline makes abundantly clear, Activision may be considering turning Guitar Hero into a television show -- a reality TV show, as rumor has it. Furthermore, the company is looking at creating a concert tour based on the series as well. According to Reuters, Activision CEO Robert Kotick acknowledged the rumor prior to the company's Q1 earnings call, saying, "It might make for a good TV show or a good concert tour."

Another rumor floating around -- about which Kotick declined to comment -- is that Activision is also prepping a film adaptation of the Call of Duty franchise. Call of Duty just might actually make a good movie, as Hollywood already has a general template for decent war movies. The only question: Would the film be based on a Treyarch-developed Call of Duty, or one developed by Infinity Ward? Flame war: Commence.
