Harmonix revealing new game tomorrow

Harmonix will announce a new game tomorrow, but it's probably not what you think:

The rhythm game developer is expanding its wheelhouse, but it's kept quiet about its new efforts so far. The only clue we have is an August job listing for a combat designer from the company, who would "design and tune combat skills and abilities; overseeing creation of robust combat AI systems for minor and major combat encounters."

That position may or may not be for the game in question, but fighting with fists/guns/lasers instead of plastic instruments or jaunty dance moves would be a change of pace for the studio (if not the industry).

    Oh cool! :/

    Speculation: A Kinect based fighting game of some sort. Sounds underwhelming I know, but if any dev can pull it off it's Harmonix. The Dance Central series was glorious.

    I somehow doubt they would make a game that wasn't music or dancing related. I mean, it's even in the name! XD Unless of course, you're talking about a rhythm based fighting game... Which if "The way of the Dogg" is anything to go by, it might not be such a good genre to mix up :P

    True enough, I guess I forgot "Music Systems" is the second part of their name. But again, if any dev could pull of a rhythm-based fighting game its Harmonix.

    Oh hey, they announced it already. I was completely wrong...

    Too bad that's the only thing Kinect is good for.

    Nothing is ever better with Kinect except pizza ordering.
  • BladedFalcon - June 3, 2013 4:21 p.m.

    Seems I didn't put enough sarcasm in my sentence :P
  • Cyberninja - June 3, 2013 4:31 p.m.

    I think we put the same amounts of sarcasm in our sentences. :p
  • BladedFalcon - June 3, 2013 4:40 p.m.

    Heh, fair enough :P
