Harmonix announces new partnership with PDP on Rock Band 4


With Rock Band 4 co-publisher Mad Catz facing some financial issues this year and laying off nearly 37% of its staff, it was uncertain what the future of Rock Band 4 would be. This included whether there would be any new peripherals released in the future. Well, that question has now been answered, as Harmonix has announced a new partnership agreement with Performance Designed Products LLC (PDP).

“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, Harmonix CEO.

“Rock Band is the premier music platform for console players,” said Chris Richards, CEO, 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.”

It will be interesting to see what new peripherals will be released with this new partnership. PDP is well known for its large range of gaming and PC products including gaming headphones, Rock Candy keyboard, and gaming controllers for multiple systems.
