Viacom Announces Rock Band 3

Viacom CEO Philippe Dauman announced today that the next long-awaited edition of Rock Band is on the way, and should be in stores this holiday season.  Dauman, looking to counter speculation in the gaming industry that the era of the music game is over, said in his statement that the game will “innovate and revolutionize the music genre”.

According to various tweets and messages from Harmonix staff sent shortly after Dauman’s statement, Rock Band 3 will produced by MTV Games and distributed by EA.  Some media outlets say they’re expecting more information to slip out during GDC this week, but realistically a release this big needs an equally large stage to show off on…  So while there may be a few measly details released in the coming weeks, expect the big surprises; video, new controllers, etc, to come at E3.
