New guitar, drums, and microphone peripherals are coming by way of a partnership with Mad Catz. However, in an effort to keep the community united, Rock Band 4 will not support keyboards or pro-controllers.
As for the Rock Band peripherals already released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Harmonix product manager Daniel Sussman said the team is "working their asses off" to support those old controllers for Rock Band 4.
Perhaps a more important question for gamers is: Will my existing Rock Band DLC carry forward? That's the plan, according to Sussman.
"We have been working with Sony and Microsoft to support legacy entitlements, so that DLC you bought on the PS3 will carry forward to the PS4, and same with the Xbox 360 to the Xbox One," he said.
It's unclear right now if you'll be able to move DLC across console families, i.e. PS3 to Xbox One or Xbox 360 to PS4.
Finally, Sussman said Rock Band 4 will be the only new Rock Band game released for the Xbox One and PS4.
"We don't envision a Rock Band 5, 6, 7 or 8. What we would rather do is build on the Rock Band 4 feature set through very deliberate content and title updates that are developed in collaboration and conversation with our community," he said.
