You've got to hand it to the guys and gals of Harmonix
: They like to keep people guessing. They go from hitting music pods with a ship in Frequency
to throwing in an axe for Guitar Hero
, then pull in all kinds of instruments for Rock Band
. While the next logical step would be Polyphonic Spree: The Game
, it seems that the company will be simplifying for their next title.
In that new game, which they'll be discussing at GDC, "beats would not be authored by tech-savvy musicians, but would instead be algorithmically generated." Also, there won't be a dedicated peripheral for the game, a relief to neat freak spouses of gamers throughout the globe.
Whatever they're working on, Harmonix hasn't let us down yet, and we can't wait to see where they're going next.
