Budcat Creations Swallowed by Activision

Posted by | January 5, 2009

You’ve never heard of them, but Budcat Creations was responsible for rather a few games in the last couple years, notably Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock, and Guitar Hero: Aerosmith. This recent success caught the attention of Activision, who devoured the small studio in a recent deal. You can check out the press release here.

This move helps to strengthen Activision’s grip on the music game genre as they seek to forge an unbreakable steel collar around those clicky plastic guitars.

Jeremy Andersen of Budcat Creations refused to comment on the financial terms of the deal. Activision, when asked for a quote, merely twirled its mustache before issuing a cackling laugh.
