According to this, Guitar Hero IV will arrive before the end of the year, a fact sourced from a press release issued by band The Answers. One of the outfit’s tracks, It’s Never Too Late, is to feature in the game after being picked out at the Marché international de l’édition musicale (nope, we don’t know either, but EG reckons it’s a music industry trade fair). Activision chose 20 tracks from the fair to be included in the game.

Acitivision declined to comment.
