Could Rock Band Be Making a Comeback?

By on

A survey by Harmonix is hinting at Rock Band making a comeback. The survey asks respondents about how excited they?d be for a Rock Band game for the current generation of consoles namely the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Wii U. The survey gives off the impression that the game developers are serious about the possibility of releasing a new game.

Although the survey doesn?t give any specific ideas that may possibly be in the works, it still asks respondents about how often they play the game and what type of peripheral devices they still own as well as the platform that they play on. Some recent remarks by Harmonix chief creative officer Alex Rigopulos, hints to them looking at the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and the Wii U as the platforms of choice, at least for now.

Last June, Rigopulos mentioned in a statement that the Rock Band franchise would be ?something we?ll return to at the right point in time, and reimagine it as appropriate for its time.? Rigopulos also touched base about peripherals on the latest consoles being a possibility earlier this month by saying: ?We think about it all the time because we love Rock Band, and we’re waiting for just the right moment in the new generation of consoles to bring it back.”

Rock Band?s last game was released in 2012 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and the game was called Rock Band Blitz. That game uses the consoles standard gamepad rather than the popular peripherals like the guitar, microphones and drums. The last Rock Band game to use these peripheral instruments was 2010?s Rock Band 3.

Harmonix will be bringing its Dance Central series to the Xbox One this coming September with the latest game called Dance Central: Spotlight, although there is still no news of what is to come for the Rock Band franchise.
