Harmonix Wants Your Help To Bring Rock Band 4 to PC

Maybe they should work on releasing that Amplitude soundtrack first.


Harmonix wants to bring Rock Band 4 to PC along with the Rock Band network, and is asking for $1.5 million to make it happen.

The plan is to use popular funding platform Fig to gather the funds, and at the time of this writing 287 backers have raised $98,327 out of a $1,500,000 goal.

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.
