Guitar Hero: World Tour was the first entry in the series to introduce drums, which brought about its own set of problems. In fact, production issues surrounding the kits were substantial enough that director Brian Bright ended up sneaking into China to get things fixed.
In an interview with Wireframe, Bright felt he needed to take action after discovering that the initial drum kits he saw “had a ton of cross-talk and dead zones, to the point where they were unplayable.” Because of this, he ended up buying a ticket to China – without informing his boss – to meet with RedOctane. Then while on the way to visit factories, they had to sneak past a checkpoint since they brought Xboxes with them which were not allowed in the country.
