You heard about the rumors... well, it's all true! Harmonix just confirmed that Rock Band 4 is in the works and will be released later on this year! rockband4-harmonix It's time to get your old band back together and start rocking out for endless hours again.
For years you have been asking us the same question: “When will Rock Band return?” For years you have been unified in solidarity with one single demand: “Give us a new Rock Band!” Well, today, my friends, is your day. “Give us a new Rock Band!” Okay. You win. We’ll do it. “When will Rock Band return?” Oh I dunno, HOW ABOUT THIS YEAR? 2015! That’s right. Later this year, Rock Band 4 comes to Xbox One™ and PlayStation®4, and it will support all your previously purchased downloadable content (aka YOUR MUSIC) as we release them on next gen consoles! - Harmonix

And here's one more awesome thing to throw at you... If you're attending PAX East in Boston this upcoming weekend (March 06-08th), you can pre-order an Exclusive Penny Arcade themed-guitar at their booth, #4224. Now I wish I was able to attend the event! The guitar looks sick! paxexclusiveguitar
