US videogame publication Electronic Gaming Monthly has ignited rumours on a possible sequel to Guitar Hero III featuring popular Irish rock band, U2.
According to the Rumor Mill section of the magazine, two new Guitar Hero sequels are currently in development, in addition to the upcoming Guitar Hero IV. Furthermore, the report also hints at the appearance of a popular rock band in one of the games, which may or may not be U2.
The article itself reads:
“We already know Guitar Hero IV is on its way, but I'm hearing two more Guitar Hero titles are also in the works, bringing Guitar Hero III's sequel count to four. And one may star a group that rocks in mysterious ways.”
Internet websites have widely speculated that the ‘mysterious ways’ comment is a direct reference to the U2 song of the same name, which appeared on the highly successful 1991 album, Achtung Baby.
Activision have yet to issue any comment on the matter.
Stay tuned for more developments as they break.
