What System Should a New Rock Band Come To? Harmonix Wants to Know

Rock on!

Harmonix sent out a newsletter to fans today asking for opinions on what they would like to see in a possible new Rock Band title. "The crew here at Harmonix still meets to talk about Rock Band regularly, and right now we'd love to hear from YOU," it states.

Among other questions relating to how much respondents currently play, the survey asked fans to rate their level of excitement for:

  • A new Rock Band title on CURRENT-GEN consoles (Xbox One, PS4, Wii U)
  • A new Rock Band title on LEGACY consoles (Xbox 360, PS3, Wii)
  • New versions of existing instruments for CURRENT-GEN consoles (guitar, drums, etc.)

The survey also asks what, if any, Rock Band instruments respondents currently own, raising the possibility that a new game could potentially incorporate legacy controllers (or maybe we could still see one final, last-gen Rock Band).

Of course, none of this means that a new Rock Band title is actively in development, but it's exciting news that Harmonix is thinking about how to approach another instrumental music project. Harmonix CCO Alex Rigopulos said in a recent interview: "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."
