Rejoice, music fans! Harmonix is currently working on a brand new Rock Band game for current generation consoles, according to Bloomberg Business.
According to a “person familiar with the plan”, the company is developing a new music game for the first time since 2012 for the PS4 and Xbox One. Should this be true, not only is it amazing news, but it means that perhaps Harmonix has not given up on their music franchise, which continues to be played this day.
After reaching out to Harmonix, IGN reported that the company didn’t deny or confirm much, other than being happy people are interested:
“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 still 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.”
Obviously this is hugely exciting news (if you’re me), and hopefully this rumor turns out to be true.
