The rumours of a reunion were true! Harmonix is getting the band back together for a new version of Rockband for the PS4 and Xbox One.
“With Rock Band 4, we’re doubling down on the energy and excitement of playing music live with your friends,” says Harmonix Chief Executive Officer Steve Janiak. “Focusing on the core experience that our fans have told us they love allows us to evolve established gameplay in meaningful ways that we can’t wait to share with everyone later this year.”, he added, saying absolutely nothing of value.
Apparently the 2000 DLC tracks that were released with the last iteration of the game will be compatible with the new game – so you won’t have to buy it all again, though it remains unclear whether the game will have something similar to GTA5 whereby you can transfer between Playstation and Xbox (we’re guessing that it won’t happen).
Harmonix says it will reveal more about the forthcoming game in May.
