Kotaku has spotted a new trademark application filed by Activision at the United States Patent and Trademark Office for what is assumed to be a new title in the hugely successful Guitar Hero franchise.

Apart from the usual info confirming that Guitar Hero Modern Hits is a video game, there's no other info to report. Much like Guitar Hero Rocks the 80s was a collection of rocking tunes from that decade, we're guessing Guitar Hero Modern Hits will focus on tracks from more recent times deemed worthy of inclusion in the acclaimed virtual band game.
