Rock Band 4 has been a huge success for consoles but wouldn’t it be cool if the game was also available to PC gamers? Many PC gamers would love that. Harmonix seems to think so anyway.
Harmonix has launched a crowdfunding campaign for the game and if it reaches the goal it’s going to start working on Rock Band 4 for PC. If that gets you excited, read on.
Harmonix wants to launch a crowdfunding campaign on Fig to raise $1.5 million over the next 35 days. They say that developing the PC version is going to cost $2 million but it’s willing to put up the additional $500,000 itself to get things done. Fig is a crowdfunding platform aimed at developers who want to try crowdfunding to raise money for their games. Double Fine has used the platform to raise more than $3 million for its Psychonauts sequel, so good things can happen.
If they reach the goal then Sumo Digital will develop the title. They have worked on titles like Sonic and Disney Infinity. The idea is that with Harmonix working with an external developer for Rock Band 4 for PC, it will allow it to keep its core teams focused on developing new content and features for both PC and console. Let’s do this for PC gamers!
