Rock Band is Officially Back

There had been speculation about this for a while, and now it’s official…Rock Band, the game, is back.

As Rolling Stone reports, it’s been four years since we’ve had a Rock Band game, but now the fourth edition of the game will be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One some time later this year.

Rumors started going around again when Harmonix added new songs you could download that hinted at the game’s return, like Tenacious D’s Rise of the Fenix, and Weezer’s Back to the Shack. This will apparently be an updated version of the game, but if you have the old versions of the game, it should work with the new edition as well.

We’re big fans of music games, especially Guitar Hero, and we’re excited to see them coming back. We’re especially curious to see if it will have any impact on what’s left of the music business, and the official plans for Rock Band 4 will be announced at the E3 Expo this year, which begins on June 16.
