Although it hasn’t been confirmed that the game is actually coming, Bloomberg interviewed “a person familiar with the plan,” which led the news to leak. In response to the rumors, the developers over at Harmonix had this to say:
“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.”
The popular music game’s developers haven’t released a Rock Band title since Rock Band 3 back in 2010, with several different game conferences like PAX East and E3 rapidly approaching, this could be the right time for Harmonix to announce the newest addition to the beloved series.
