Say goodbye to the old Guitar Hero CEO Dan Rosensweig. He's leaving the position at Activision after less than a year, a year in which the Guitar Hero (and DJ Hero and Band Hero) franchise didn't do so well.
And please welcome the new Guitar Hero boss, David Haddad, formerly the COO of the Guitar Hero brand who will assume the operational duties of giving us more Hero branded games in 2010. Why the change? Probably the aforementioned not-doing-so-well.
As the LA Times illustrates in informative numbers, Guitar Hero 5 sold less than a million in the United States last year compared to its predecessor Guitar Hero: World Tour's 3.4 million.
