Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine claims to be in high-level meetings with Activision and Neversoft over some new kind of Guitar Hero venture. In response to a fan question on, Mustaine said the idea discussed is some sort of new venture rather than a branded version of the game a la Metallica (at least I think that’s what he means by “Guitar Hero box”).

I have recently had two very important high-level meetings with the people from Activision and Neversoft, and we are talking about a lot of things, but a Guitar Hero box set is not as attractive to me and the people from Guitar Hero as the new idea that they offered me, as the creative stuff that we are talking about is over-the-moon!

I just hope that someone doesn’t stand in the way of this happening. I know that there are a lot of really damaging results from our mothership (WEA) having some legal disputes with YouTube and Guitar Hero to name just a few.

If something comes of this, and it’s not Guitar Hero: Megadeth, what do you think it could be? Let’s hear it in the comments!
