Harmonix's New Title Might Surprise You...
Harmonix does music games. Evidence of that is right there in their name.
But might we see something completely new in a matter of hours...? According to the studio's Twitter account, Harmonix is unveiling their game at some point today, and it has nothing to do with Rock Band or Dance Central.
Don't be too surprised, though. Last year, the developer was hiring for a combat designer, and there were rumors that Harmonix was actually making an action-based adventure. Of course, their bread and butter is the music genre, but that particular category of gaming has fallen off the map in recent years. At one time, it was worth billions, as Rock Band and Guitar Hero were two of the biggest names in the industry. But then came over-saturation to the max and that was that; the fad hit the skids.
So don't be too surprised if their new game isn't related to music or rhythm in any way. I'm intrigued, that's for sure.
