Harmonix wants to bring Rock Band 4 to PC along with the Rock Band
The plan is to use popular funding platform Fig to gather the funds, and at the time of this
The campaign itself is said to cover the amount only needed for PC, which Harmonix estimates at $2 million. The company is planning on contributing $500,000 itself and is looking to earn the rest of the money via backer pledges, special purchases and investments, and more via Fig.
While obviously a PC version would be useful for the modding community, particularly interesting is the fact that Harmonix envisions allowing players to upload their own songs a la the Rock Band Network, which is basically being resurrected as a new concept that will work through the Steam Workshop. Any songs submitted would be vetted by Harmonix before being released to the public.
It's interesting, but not a fan of the Fig trend I'm seeing these days. It seems as though a lot of these projects really don't require crowdfunding.
