In 2014, Harmonix announced Chroma, a new gameplay experience that looked to completely reimagine the classic first-person shooter formula, infusing fast-paced PC shooter action with music gameplay. The concept: music is your weapon, sound is your arsenal.

Harmonix tested an early version of this exciting, innovative concept in a private Closed Alpha, and received feedback from thousands of players who were excited by this groundbreaking take on both shooter and music gameplay. The development team has already started prototyping new directions for the game based on the most successful mechanics. The studio looks forward to sharing more with players down the line, as Chroma evolves in new directions.
