Harmonix Cancels PC Version Rock Band 4 After Crowdfunding Campaign Fails - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 06 April 2016 / 5,229 Views
Developer Harmonix has announced it has cancelled the PC version of Rock Band 4 after the FIG crowdfunding campaign failed.
The team is disappointed, however, they have learned that as an independent developer they are unable to take such large risks.
Many people have asked Harmonix why they have started a new project before finishing the work on Rock Band 4. The developer has a team dedicated on upgrading and improving Rock Band 4.
"We have a large team dedicated to upgrading and improving RB4, and we’re releasing free monthly updates, stabilizing the game, and adding features that you’ve requested," said the developer in an update on the FIG crowdfunding page. "To be absolutely clear, this campaign has had ZERO impact on Rock Band 4 development. Nord and Henrik were assigned to the Fig campaign and were not on the RB4 team when it started. The community team supports Harmonix as a whole, and is not assigned specifically to Rock Band 4."
