Guitar Hero Live launched in 2015 to mediocre reviews across the board.

On that date, we will terminate the service for GHTV and servers will be shut down. Console versions of the GH Live mode will continue to operate as usual.

The mobile versions of Guitar Hero Live are also being shut down and have been removed from the respective app stores for new downloads.

Again, Guitar Hero TV is shutting down its service on December 1st, 2018.
