After years of working together with Mad Catz in the making of guitar and other accesories, game developer Harmonix has signed a partnership with PDP for Rock Band 4. While the future doesn’t look bright for Mad Catz after laying off almost half its staff due to the low sales of RB4, the future seems positive for the game developer.
“As we look to fully achieve our goal of creating this console generation’s category-defining music gaming platform, we need to partner with a truly world-class manufacturer that can operate at the scale that Rock Band requires. PDP has a well-deserved reputation for innovation, customer satisfaction, and quality. They have the logistical and technical expertise to support Harmonix’s ambitious plans for the future of Rock Band, with new hardware alongside a major Rock Band 4 feature update coming this Fall,“ said Steve Janiak, CEO at Harmonix.
“Rock Band is the premier music platform for console players,” said Chris Richards, CEO at PDP. “This will be a great partnership and gaming fans should get ready to experience new, innovative hardware products for Rock Band 4 and Rock Band VR.”
For now, Mad Cats will continue to sell and support its Rock Band 4 products.
Players can expect more details during E3 Expo and PAX this year.
