Harmonix Working On Three Or More Original AAA IP’s

John Drake, Director of Communications and Brand Management at Harmonix, has confirmed that the development team behind the immensely popular Rock Band and Dance Central franchises are currently developing three or more original IP’s.

“Some of them are music games. Some of them are not full-on rhythm action games.”

“Some of them are brand new things that we created from our guts and brains here at Harmonix. Some of them are sort of like things we’re explaining the universe of.”

“It’s not Amplitude or Frequency. I’m not talking about Rock Band 4. I’m not talking about the next Dance Central game. I’m talking about new, crazy stuff!”

“I can definitely confirm that the overwhelming majority of the positions on our site are for unannounced AAA projects that are new IP.”

      1. Didn’t you and I have this argument already? Need I quote Wikipedia and various other sources again, that all say the same thing?

        This is shovelware. By definition. End of story. You can live in denial if you’d like, but the facts won’t change because of it.

        Just shut up.

        1. but, harmonix makes awesome games…thats not shovelware. shovelware is something like call of duty or just dance where there are so many of them you can’t tell them apart. where as harmonix games take time and effort and end up being distinctive from one another.

            1. ugh omg. “software noted more for the quantity of what is included than for the quality” harmonix hasnt made very many games, thus, it’s not shovelware. call of duty and just dance, are shovelware. stfu

            2. i really hate people like you that tell people to look up the definition when you don’t even know the damn definition you dumb ass.

  1. Where the hell did you see anything about three titles? i keep reading the quotes posted here but he didnt mention there were three or more of them

    1. “i keep reading the quotes posted here but he didnt mention there were three or more of them”. Maybe you shouldn’t be looking here. Try looking at the link, by clicking on the word CONFIRMED in the first paragraph….wise ass…..

  2. Give me a guitar hero game with 100% sharks with lasers on their heads and dancing monkeys and you got yourself a deal Harmonix

  3. Playstation is dead, playstation is dead, The Vita just died, and Sony just got another financial loss. hahahaha, I love Nintendo best Consoles, Best Handhelds, and now we are gonna get another generation full of great games :)
    ahhh im playing my 3DS right now, i think im gonna hit the eShop to see what next great Download title i can play. It sure is great to be a Nintendo Fan :)

      1. speaking of money by september nintendo will earn there profit again, while sony still flushing money down the drain lol……
        by the way are u really that xbox fag or his clone?…..cant tell who is the real one here. :p

    2. You know, that could be true. I think they have about 6 billion left, that’s not enough to make a gaming platform.

  4. Stop that sony owned a generation with the ps2. When the game cube was crap. I love nintendo am a huge pokemon fan and during that generation where i live(lagos.nigeria) i never saw a gamecube til i went to the uk for summer . But 80 per of the guys in my class had a ps2 the rest had ps1s thats how bad it was till ds and wii came along

    1. NIGERIa? gamecubes were classy. as for ps1 and ps2? cheap hahahahahaha no wonder nigeria had them

    2. I wouldn’t say the Gamecube was crap, it wasn’t the best selling console people many people still loved it, I agree the PS2 was a great console and it did win that generation but really the xbox (Which I’m sad to say) and the dreamcast (which I am GLAD to say) where the most popular consoles at the time.

      I had the Dreamcast, PS2 and Gamecube and loved all of them… never really got an xbox even though I really wanted one. Still, like I said the Gamecube became more and more popular as the titles for it became better but it didn’t really last as long as the PS2.

      Both are great pieces of machinery and I had loads of friends that had a Gamecube and a PS2.

  5. Most were bought from europe so plus import most people that did not get to buy theirs abroad had to pay more . Which is more than the gamecube cost

  6. Thats just how low the gamecube did. Even pre owned a gamecube could not be found . And you can find literally hundred of ps2s

    1. Did you ever think that maybe its because the Gamecube actually did better than the PS2?

      Like I said before both systems where great but more people wanted the GC rather than the PS2, that’s why you see some many pre-owed PS2s

  7. Actually nope the gamecube was not that good i just tot nintendo had fallen. There was no inovation in the game cube. The controller was horibble the dual shock 2 the d-pads quack but thats the best controller ever. Thats y sony had to change the ps3s pad from sixaxis to the d.s3. The game cube and ps2 were good but that time software, good graphics and price was the key. Only then did nintendo realise that they did want to complete with that and truly inovate . The gamecube is the wost home console by nintendo. Compared to other great things the was no inovation we admire them for

  8. Oh good, another “Could be barely related to Nintendo” news instead of “actually related to Nintendo” news, courtesy of sickr.

  9. I fail to see how this has anything to do with Nintendo unless rumored or confirmed that these AAA titles are coming to Nintendo’s platforms

  10. failkid wars gotta love em.
    personally i cant wait for the WiiU i guess u can say my body is ready. Im getting sick of this generations current consoles. My Wii been collecting dust lately since i beat Xenoblade Chronicles. My 360 aint doing much better the last game i played on it was Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition. Most of my game time lately has been on the Ps3 & Max Payne 3. Man its great to own all consoles.

  11. I’d love to see them develop a sidescrolling rhythm game in the vein of Bit.Trip and the music level in Rayman Legends.

  12. I liked how Frequency and Amplitude looked and played, so I would not mind something even better from their makers.
    This is good news and I’d place money on them selling well.^_^
