Are you sick of limiting your music gaming to just the consoles in your living room? Well, Harmonix is working on a way to bring Rock Band 4 to your PC. They’re expecting to develop the game via the crowdfunding site Fig, which helped raise more than $3 million for Double Fine to create a sequel to Psychonauts. But they won’t be developing it alone. They’ve partnered with Sumo Digital to port the game while Harmonix continues to build up on the foundation they’ve already created with Rock Band 4 on the Xbox One and PS4. While they contribute $500,000, the diehard Rock Band fans will hopefully contribute $1.5 million toward the project, giving them a chance to get their hands on all sorts of exclusive swag or even become an investor in the project.
With the already innovative freeform guitar solos and vocal features, Rock Band 4 for PC will encourage the highly active modding community to create their own songs to share and/or sell within the game community network. But I’ll let Harmonix co-founder Alex Rigopulos and Rock Band 4 designer Matthew Nordhaus explain all the fine details to you.
If they can get the funds they need by early April, expect to see Rock Band 4 on PCs around the world by fall 2016.
