Activision has opened a refund program for customers in the US who bought it Guitar Hero Live on or after 1 December 2017 after the closure of the GHTV service of the game.
Originally Guitar Hero Live started in 2015 with two main play modes: an offline mode where you played for a crowd of real, pre-recorded actors and an online mode where you could play with official music videos that were streamed for you on various , in the game, TV-like channels. For hardcore fans of the peripheral heavy-series it was largely a return to form, but disappointing sales led to the early demise.
In December 2018 Activision revealed that it would close the online GHTV mode and essentially remove a large part (and probably the best part) of the game. In order to prevent possible anger and possibly legal actions by angry consumers, the publisher now offers refunds to all buyers in the US who bought the game within a year of the game being stopped.
Activision offers a voluntary refund program for customers who purchased the Guitar Hero Live game system on or after December 1, 2017 in the United States. Customers may be eligible for a refund if:
1) They have purchased Guitar Hero Live in the United States in the period from 1 December 2017 and ending on 1 January 2019;
2) They submit a completed claim form before the deadline of 1 May 2019; and
3) The purchase of Guitar Hero Live since December 2017 can be confirmed by Activision
If you are eligible for this refund and want to apply for it, you can do it here. Even if you do not have a receipt with a voucher or credit card statement, Activision is still trying to verify suitability. Whether this refund process will also arrive in other regions is unknown.
