The lights are on
Are you getting a little bored with Rock Band, Rock Band 2, Lego Rock Band and the Beatles: Rock Band? Good! Harmonix has just announced that Rock Band 3 is on its way this holiday season. Here’s what the developer had to say on its Facebook page:
Rock Band Harmonix is developing Rock Band 3 for worldwide release this holiday season! The game, which will be published by MTV Games and distributed by Electronic Arts, will innovate and revolutionize the music genre once again, just as Harmonix did with the original Rock Band, Rock Band 2 and The Beatles: Rock Band. Stay tuned for more details!Oh, what a tease. If only someone working on the game had a big mouth and revealed at least a little info about the game. Wait, someone did! Back in November, Dhani Harrison mentioned that he was involved in Rock Band 3. More interestingly, he mentioned that the next iteration was inching closer to the goal outlaid by Alex Rigopoulos back before the first Rock Band launched. “I'm working on Rock Band 3 and making the controllers more real so people can actually learn how to play music while playing the game,” Harrison said to the Chicago Tribune. “Give me a couple years, it's going to happen.”It’s going to happen all right, but the question is, will Harmonix get there first?
