7 Studios, which Activision acquired in 2009, has been disbanded following the announcement last night the firm was canning music game development.

7 Studios producer Damon Conn broke the news via Twitter, as well as various other employees at the studio, according to Joystiq.

The developer was acquired by Activision to work on DJ Hero, which resulted in a lawsuit with Genius Products over the source code for Scratch: The Ultimate DJ, a game which 7 Studios was working on when it was purchased.

While the studio was helping out Freestyle Games on the DJ Hero series, it was also at work on a Guitar Hero VIP Pass DLC hub, Unannounced Projects” for iOS and “Various Prototypes/Concepts” for a other platforms.
