All DLC for Guitar Hero, DJ Hero, and Band Hero will be taken offline at the end of this month, Activision has announced.

However, Guitar Hero’s servers will remain up, and of course any downloadable content already purchased by players is unaffected by this change.

"We want to thank all of you for supporting Guitar Hero over the last nine years," Activision wrote on the official Guitar Hero Facebook page.

"To celebrate this great community, selected songs and tracks will be available for as much as a 50 per cent discount on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii from now until the end of the month. For more information, please visit the store on your console."

The Hero franchise was put on hiatus in 2011.
