Because the world needs more band-focused Guitar Hero games, Activision is set to deliver--at least, we believe it's poised to rock us with another band-oriented romp, in light of recent comments from a Queen shredder.
In an interview with Swedish news site DN.se, Queen lead guitarist Brian May let it be widely known that a Guitar Hero: Queen type of game is in the works and will apparently hit at some point in 2011. According to MTV Multiplayer, the Swedish writer who nabbed the response seemed to already know that this game was happening, so the question was rather pointed, but May didn't deny it was fact.
Kotaku readers with Swedish translation skills gave the publication a different take on the interview, believing that May was the one who said the game was coming in 2011 and will apparently feature a way for us to experience a Queen concert firsthand.
The guys in Queen don't have a stick up their butts about music games, making this sort of rumor much more believable. The band had its own SingStar title last year and several of its songs, including "We Are The Champions," "Killer Queen," "Under Pressure," and "Stone Cold Crazy," have already been featured across previous Guitar Hero titles. Of course, this is a translated interview, so keep that in mind before you bother with calling your mom about this story.
