Harmonix is Joining the Epic Games Family!

Exciting news for team Harmonix today as it’s just been announced that we’re joining the Epic Games family. This is a monumental day for the team, and one that wouldn’t have been possible without years of support from you, our fans - thank you!

Over the last 26 years we have pushed ourselves to redefine how people experience and interact with music. From the earliest days of The Axe to Guitar Hero, Rock Band, Dance Central, our VR titles, FUSER, and everything in between, we have aspired to redefine what a music game can be. Now, we’ll be working with Epic to once again challenge expectations as we bring our unique brand of musical gaming experiences to the Metaverse, and we couldn’t be more excited.

We’re sure you have some questions about what this means for you so we’ve put together a brief FAQ to answer some initial questions. 

What does this mean for Rock Band DLC?
Nothing. We’ll be continuing on with our existing DLC plans… and there are lots of great tracks coming as we wrap up 2021 and push into next year!

Will you keep doing Rivals Seasons?
Yup! We’ve got a fun Season 25 already planned and plenty of ideas for Season 26 and beyond.

What about FUSER events?
No change there either!

Does this mean more Rock Band instruments will be made?
This is not in our current plans.

Will FUSER and your other games still be available on Steam?
Yes, all our games will remain available on Steam and console.

What about the servers for [INSERT HARMONIX GAME HERE]? Will those be taken offline?
We aren’t planning to change the way we support any of our older games.

What will the Harmonix team work on next?
Our team will work with Epic to create musical journeys and gameplay for Fortnite. While we’re not ready to share any specifics, the whole team is incredibly excited to get started. Stay tuned!
