Harmonix no longer working with Mad Catz on Rock Band 4

Harmonix has confirmed it will now partner with PDP to manufacture new peripherals for the rhythm game.

Rock Band 4 developer Harmonix announced the new partnership in a recent FAQ, confirming the new peripherals won’t be shipping until autumn 2016.

Don’t worry too much though, as all Mad Catz instruments will continue to work with the game and receive support from Harmonix.

Harmonix and Mad Catz are continuing to work together,” the developer said. “Mad Catz has been an important partner, and they continue to sell and support controllers for Rock Band 4.”

The developer was quick to confirm that this partnership does not confirm the development of a sequel, but the”ongoing development of Rock Band 4.”

More details will be announced at PAX and E3 later this year, including the possibility of new instruments.

Harmonix is currently trying to crowdfund a PC version of Rock Band 4 on fig. The project is hoping to raise a minimum of $1.5 million in funding, with the campaign set to end on April 5.
