'Rock Band' Is Back With 'Rock Band 4': Headed To Xbox One And PS4 In 2015

It's been five years, and the world is apparently ready for more Rock Band. The folks behind the original Guitar Hero and Rock Band franchises are back in the development seat and bringing Rock Band 4 to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year.

Fans of the series need to know these important facts up front:

All your previously purchased content and any songs you ripped from previous Rock Band games to sequels will work in Rock Band 4, from Xbox 360 to Xbox One and PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4. It's two-thousand something songs. No joke.

Harmonix is trying very hard to make your old peripherals work on current-gen game consoles -- despite the fact that there's basically zero compatibility between last-gen and current-gen game console peripherals. "We're working very closely with Sony and Microsoft to do everything we possibly can to make that possible," Harmonix CEO Alex Rigopulos told me.

Yes, there will also be new peripherals (guitars and drums at least). Yes, they will continue to be made by Mad Catz.

The plan is to make Rock Band 4 and that's it; the game is a platform, not something that's going to receive annual (or semi-annual) sequels. "At this point, in addition to DLC [downloadable content] expansions, we're thinking of Rock Band 4 more as an ongoing platform model where it can incrementally accrete new functionality over time instead of doing big $60 title releases," Rigopulos said.

    great that theyre gonna make all the songs compatible, but after learning how to play actual guitar, plastic instruments seem kinda wack now.

    Wouldnt mind seeing a new Rocksmith though.
