Direktøren og en af grundlæggerene bag Harmonix, Alex Rigopulos siger at Rock Band vil komme tilbage på et tidspunkt.

I en såkaldt "AMA" (Ask Me Anything) på Reddit, fortalte Alex Rigopulos, at Rock Band ikke er lukket ned for altid, men blot tager sig en lur.

Mange mener at Rock Band og Guitar Hero-spillene, fik en stille død, fordi udgiveren Activision tydeligvis var begyndt at malke Guitar Hero-brandet så voldsomt, at folk blev trætte af spillet. Det er Alex ikke helt enig i, og siger blandt andet at både den høje pris på spillene i forbindelse med en finanskrise og den fact at spillene rent faktisk ikke udviklede sig særlig meget over tiden, har været en afgørende faktor. Dog udelukker han ikke helt, at Activision også bærer en del af skylden.
I think there’s probably some truth to the notion that Activision ‘over-published’ Guitar Hero. But I wouldn’t agree that the decline of the genre was ‘entirely the fault of Activision.

Reality is always more complicated than this. For example, it didn’t help that Guitar Hero and Rock Band were the most expensive video games on the market during a brutal recession. I also don’t think that either Guitar Hero or Rock Band delivered enough (or the right kind of) evolution of the experience in the years that followed the initial releases – something we hope to address at some point in the next outing.


Da han bliver spurgt om han virkelig mener, at Rock Band ikke er død og begravet, så svarer Alex følgende:
Of course I was sad when Rock Band passed its (first!) peak, but one way or another, it will be back.

Music games need to evolve just like every aspect of pop culture. The band game boom was followed by a dance game boom, which will be followed by some other manifestation of music games - hopefully some of the new stuff Harmonix is working on.

Music is a permanent aspect of the human experience, and so is gameplay. It’s Harmonix’s job to figure out new ways for music and gameplay to amplify each other’s emotional power. Stand by.
