Whilst Harmonix have stated that fans shouldn’t expect Rock Band 4 to release this year, the developer has today dished out invitations to its annual party at E3 teasing that it will be used to “celebrate the announcement of our latest title.”
Of course the studio, based in Cambridge, MA, didn’t provide any other tidbits, meaning that details of the title are unsurprisingly been saved for an E3 reveal.
Chris Rigopulos, Vice President of Strategy and Business Development at Harmonix, recently stated that Rock Band 4 wouldn’t come out this year to ensure that are able to fully explore the content Rock Band 3 offers:
“Rock Band 3 is a big game with lots of available music content and lots of new goals and challenges. We want to give our fans the time to explore that fully,” he explained to Game Informer. “Rest assured that Harmonix is still developing new ideas and concepts to advance the Rock Band franchise, and we look forward to sharing those when the time is right.”
There is the possibility, then, that we might see another Rock Band off-shoot, like The Beatles: Rock Band or Green Day: Rock Band, announced over the coming weeks. Either way, we’re sure to keep our eye out!
