For DJ Hero 2 Activision are trying to sign Qbert

For anyone that has been paying attention to what Activision did with the Guitar Hero franchise, it will come as no surprise to hear that even before DJ Hero was released the company behind it were already looking further down to the road at DJ Hero 2 and to that end trying to secure legendary scratch artist DJ Qbert.

DJ Qbert is a multiple DMC world DJ champion and a childhood friend and colleague of Mix Master Mike of the Beastie Boys fame, they have been revolutionary in the world of DJ’ing and scratching and to sign Qbert to the DJ Hero franchise would be a big draw for DJ Hero 2.

Activision are now said to be working with at least one UK developer on DJ Hero 2 which is rumoured to be coming out sometime in 2010, and if the Guitar Hero series is anything to go by it will not be long until we see more in the pipeline. The message boards around the internet have given this news a mixed reaction, on the one hand people would like to seeĀ  development continue on DJ Hero 1 with more DLC, but on the other hand now you have brought your DJ Hero turntable would you not like to see more games for you to play on it?

One thing we would like to see most in DJ Hero 2 is the ability to play live drums over the DJ tracks, what you would you like to see most in the new game?

    I think it would be relatively easy to have a freestyle option for dj hero, where you can select your songs, cross fade at will between tracks, scratch, etc. if they can do it for the guitar, they can definitely figure something out for the turntable

    Yes I think we will certainly be seeing a DJ Hero 2 sometime this year, there is so much more they could do with it and I’m sure they are working hard on it right now!
