Harmonix has announced through its official Facebook page that Rock Band 3 will be hitting UK shores this winter. The third iteration will apparently ‘revolutionize the music genre once again’ – although just how this will be done is still unknown.
Rock Band 2 is already a solid platform because of its steady release of DLC and the recent launch of the indie Rock Band Network. Presumably they’ve got a big hardware overhaul or some serious gameplay changes if they feel they need to release a new retail game.
This will be the second Rock Band release of 2010, following on from the Green Day: Rock Band announcement that was leaked in December. Harmonix’s previous tribute to The Beatles was absolutely fantastic, but somehow I just can’t see a Green Day version having the same universal appeal.
Rock Band 3 is being published by MTV Games and will be distributed by everyone’s favourite global giant, Electronic Arts.
