Harmonix Teams Up With Tilting Point For Multiple Mobile Titles

Harmonix is planning to continue its work in mobile development after the release of Record Run this year. The studio is partnering with Tilting Point, an agency that provides expertise and resources for high-end independent developers working in the mobile space.

In an announcement this morning, Harmonix and Tilting Point confirmed a multi-title deal. The first game in the partnership is under development now and will be specifically designed for mobile devices.

Harmonix recently released Dance Central Spotlight on Xbox One. The studio is also gearing up for the launch of Disney Fantasia on October 21.

Tilting Point has a respectable pedigree, having partnered on one of this year’s standout mobile titles, Leo’s Fortune. For more on that, check out our preview from GDC.

 

Our Take
Mobile is a growing platform, and it’s a great fit for music games. Having those apps on the same device that carries your own music means that you’ll have the opportunity to play with your tunes as a backdrop. Harmonix made this happen successfully with Record Run, and I suspect we’ll see that technique used again.
