Harmonix Responds to Recent Reports of New Rock Band Game

By   /   Feb 20, 2015

Harmonix has responded to the recent report of Rock Band’s revival and its involvement in a new installment for the current-gen consoles.

“We’re excited by how enthusiastic our fans have been in regards to our most recent DLC releases, and we think it’s awesome that people are speculating about the future of the franchise!

While we don’t have anything to announce, hundreds of thousands of unique users are still actively playing Rock Band games each month. This passion our fans have shown for Rock Band over the years suggests that rock truly hasn’t died, and we’ve always been clear that we’d love to return to the franchise when the time is right.”

Yesterday, Bloomberg reported that its sources have revealed Harmonix to be working on a new Rock Band title for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This was in the wake of the studio doing a survey where it had asked fans about what they wanted to see in a new installment.

Harmonix may be waiting for a better time to announce the game. PAX East and GDC are just weeks away and we’ll probably see the new Rock Band game get unveiled at one of them.

Rock Band became the top-selling title in 2008 but began losing money within a few years. The genre of instrumental music video games reached its peak in 2008 but is currently less than 1 percent. With the trends shifting, the casual lot turned to mobile gaming instead, causing Harmonix to be sold to invest firm Columbus Nova LLC in 2010.
