Harmonix: We'll Return To Rock Band When The Time Is Right
Evidently, Harmonix's new game isn't coming to the PlayStation platform, and that's why we didn't cover it yesterday.
Their new title, Fantasia: Music Evolved, is headed to the Xbox 360 and Xbox One and is inspired by Disney's classic 1940 animated film, "Fantasia." Players will use the Kinect motion control to manipulate the flow of music, and they'll be able to alter the mix of songs in real time. More than "25 leading artists" are signed on for the project.
But what about Harmonix's once-blockbuster franchise, Rock Band? Is it gone forever? Thankfully, studio CEO Alex Rigopulos told VentureBeat that the series won't be abandoned. They just need to wait for the right time to bring it back:
"I'll also say that we don't view Rock Band as something that's being left behind. It's something we'll return to at the right point in time and reimagine it as appropriate for its time."
The last entry in the acclaimed franchise was the downloadable Rock Band Blitz, which was an homage to old rhythm titles like Frequency and Amplitude. So, when do you think the series will return? And if it does, will the plastic instrument craze return along with it?
