Today, Harmonix confirmed that they are currently developing Rock Band 3
. Harmonix has stated they are developing it to be ready by the Holiday 2010 season.
This news came as a bit of a surprise, as Harmonix has clearly stated that they are working on Green Day: Rock Band
, which is scheduled for release sometime this year. Last year saw the release of The Beatles: Rock Band
, meaning that is has been nearly a year and a half since the last installment of the main Rock Band series, Rock Band 2
No official word on whether or not Rock Band 2
will let players export the set list from the game onto Rock Band 3
, like players were able to do with Rock Band
's setlist (55 out of 58 of the songs, anyway).Rock Band 3
will be released worldwide this Holiday season.
