Not a month after pulling the plug on future installments in the Guitar Hero and DJ Hero franchises, it appears that Activision may not be entirely done with the rhythm game genre.

Kotaku reports today that Activision has begun work on a new property called Dance Hero. According to the Web site's source, the game will capitalize on the burgeoning motion-controlled dance genre, which has seen recent hits such as Harmonix's Dance Central, Ubisoft's Just Dance, and Majesco's Zumba Fitness.

Activision has not responded to a request for comment.
