Harmonix still commited to Rock Band franchise

The Guitar Hero franchise is no more and Harmonix was sold off for the paltry price of a new retail game, but the developer is reassuring fans of the Rock Band franchise that it's still alive and kicking. Speaking to Industry Gamers, Greg LoPiccolo said there's more Rockband to come with a big announcement at this years E3. "We think there's a lot of life left in the Rock Band franchise and there's a lot of creative directions to take that."

Whether the announcement is Rock Band related remains to be seen, but with music game sales falling flat recently, Harmonix really need to step up their game to bring back the audience that is pretty much tired of the plastic instrument music games.
