Rock Band is not going anywhere….But do we really care?
Speaking to the Harmonix community John T Drake (Manager of communications) said “sad to hear yesterday that Activision was discontinuing development on Guitar Hero.”
“Our thoughts are with those who are losing their jobs, and we wish them the best of luck.”
He said this about the future of the Rock Band franchise: “Harmonix and Rock Band continue to push beyond simple performance simulation to pioneer new approaches to music gaming”. “In short, the beat of Rock Band marches on, We’re continuing to invest in the franchise and the brand that we have built, and will do our best to serve all loyal band game fans.
Is this really the right move in a genre that’s now dead?
