Harmonix is working with Oculus on ‘Rock Band VR’
Through the years, Harmonix has birthed hugely successful franchises in the video game industry. This is the video game developer that created Guitar Hero, Dance Central, and Rock Band. Harmonix’s focus has generally been on titles for consoles while dabbling in mobile and virtual reality, but the company is furthering its entrance into new territory with a very experienced partner. Last night at The Game Awards, Oculus’ Palmer Luckey announced that Rock Band VR is coming in 2016.
Luckey said that Oculus and Harmonix believe Rock Band VR will be released by March 2016, the same time the Oculus Rift is due out. Samsung’s Gear VR and Google Cardboard are both already out and cost much less than the Oculus Rift will. So those things should hold you over until you crack in 2016 to spend around $1,500 on a premium virtual reality device.
