The suit alleged Activision broke a promise with the singer that stated the publisher would not use images of guitarist and former bandmate Slash, or music by Slash's new band Velvet Revolver, in the release of Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock.
The dismissal of these contract claims follows an earlier dismissal last August by L.A. Superior Court Judge Charles Palmer on the grounds that Rose's cases of fraud and misrepresentation against Activision were filed too late. The singer did not legally file complaints until three years after the Guitar Hero title was released. Palmer now dismisses the contract claims as well, following a motion filed by Activision lawyers.
Rose maintained he never approved of the inclusion of Slash's image after allowing the use of "Welcome to the Jungle" in the video game, adding he objected to Activision through his lawyers throughout production to no avail.
