Break out your wrist bands, bandanas, and leather jackets once more. A new Rock Band is in the works, according to a report from Bloomberg.
The report cites “a person familiar with the plan” who says that Harmonix is developing a Rock Band title for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This report comes just weeks after Harmonix released new content for Rock Band 3, its first songs in 21 months, and issued a survey to see what fans would want from a new title.
Harmonix is keeping its cards close to its chest. A statement from the developer to Eurogamer said, “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.”
Currently, Harmonix is working on its Kickstarter-funded HD remake of Amplitude. The developer hasn’t committed to producing more content for Rock Band 3 and is yet to indicate that a new Rock Band is in the pipeline. But those who miss the days of jamming on plastic guitars will be hoping to hear more in the near future.
