Rock Band 4 has been officially announced by developer Harmonix. It will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year.
The series has been on a 5 year hiatus since its last installment, Rock Band 3, which released in October 2010. If you’ve kept all your old instruments in storage since then, you’re in luck – Harmonix is working closely with gaming accessory manufacturer Mad Catz to allow hardware compatibility with all legacy instruments, although Mad Catz will be creating new ones as well.
What’s more, taking a cue from Dance Central Spotlight, which released in September of last year, Rock Band 4 will allow players to import all of their purchased DLC tracks from the previous PS3/360 games to this next generation version as they are made available. Rock Band 4 will therefore support over 2,000 tracks released since 2007.
