The biggest revolution in custom songs releases since 2013 launches September 21st and brings together the entire community

More than 5 years ago, C3 revolutionized the world of user generated content with a stream of commercial grade weekly content that lasted for 2 and a half years. We launched that project with a simple tag line: "On April 9th 2013, everything changes". C3 retired as a release group after Rock Band 4 was launched, almost 3 years ago, leaving fans wanting more content but with a thriving authoring community growing and creating amazing projects. Today we are excited to announce that the thrill of weekly released content is back with the biggest community project since April 9th 2013: everything changes again, C3 is going neXt generation!

"C3 neXt generation is a collective effort with our entire community of authors to reboot weekly content and keep players and authors alike engaged week in and week out"

Legacy C3 is something that can't be brought back: it was a unique experience for a unique time, when Harmonix had stopped releasing DLC. That's why C3X will work in a slightly different way. Content will not be released as a group, rather we will welcome under the community umbrella any author who wants to join in. We will work with them to help them get better if they need and we will screen their work to bring to the public good, functioning, proper content, but ultimately authors will be responsible for the quality of their releases. To reach the widest audience possible, we will not limit ourselves to Rock Band 3 releases but we will also release for Clone Hero/Phase Shift, and we'll be discussing with Clone Hero's best charters a way to join together for a collaborative effort.

No more releases: we tour the world!
The most exciting part of an already incredibly thrilling project is that we're gonna take you on a tour! No more weekly "releases": C3X is going to be a series of amazing tours! In every tour (that will last for months, up to a year), every week is a tour date. Authors will choose which venue* will host their set to reflect the content of the setlist. Alternative niche songs? The venue might be a pub. Mainstream content? It's a stadium! Tour legs will be announced in advance with all venues and you can try to guess what's coming up based on locations. Every tour also has explosive kickoff and last show events!
That's not all: watch out for special events like festivals, that span over several days, and holidays. And to add awesomeness to awesomeness, check out the tour dates and guess what the setlist will be for each date by reading the hints we hand out outside the concert! The Tour concept will keep both authors and players entertained giving a unique new touch to the customs community.

September 15th: the album that started it all is coming out!
If you've been with us lately you already know about the huge news: C3 Generations. 100 songs divided in 10 records from the most diverse assortment of community authors ever put together. That "studio release" will kickoff C3X with a bang! Authors are already working overtime to deliver amazing content for that project that is sure to make our first tour a huge success! And while assembling this 100-song beauty, we have already secretly selected so many amazing hits from the incredible assortment of songs that were submitted for the project. All authors involved in Generations that had more songs than the ones selected, or no songs at all, will get their chance to shine with the Tour!

So much more is in the works...
With this announcement we have barely scratched the surface of what we are working on. Both the Tour and other C3X related activities have so much more going on than we announced and we couldn't be more excited about everything we are putting together. We already discussed and planned more features for the Tour and for X in general and we can't wait to tell you all about it. The neXt generation of rhythm gaming authoring begins in September and it will transform our world forever!


You're a player: now what?
Right now you need to do possibly the hardest thing ever: wait! But during these 2 months we will also drop news on C3X, on the Tour and everything, so we can promise you it's going to be a fun summer! So much stuff is going on behind the scenes and we only announced a portion of it, so stay tuned!

You're an author: now what?
This is the most exciting time to be an author since a handful of people founded C3 in 2013! Behind-the-scenes work has already begun to lay a path for the future and we need YOU to make it happen! Jump on our Discord right away and contact one of the following C3X admins to join:

  • Atupomaruru
  • BansheeFlyer
  • Kueller
  • MrPrezident (all booked!)
  • Mr. Cellophane

They will tell you all about what we need from you and what you will get for being part of this exciting new adventure in the next few weeks. We're gonna help you grow as an author if you need help, connect with the players base and deliver amazing content.

But wait, who's working on C3X?
Current C3X Management is:

  • Atupomaruru
  • BansheeFlyer
  • Farottone
  • Ghostbyob
  • Kueller
  • MrPrezident
  • Mr. Cellophane
  • Septekka

During the next months and years we will work to build an even stronger group to create more and more events and develop new ideas!

So, who's ready to go on the ultimate Tour? On September 21st everything changes... again!

*No, they're not in-game venues, they are real life venues where an author's setlist virtually takes place

Big thanks to farottone and the C3 Management team for coming together to make this possible. I'm very excited, there's a lot of excellent authors and talent out there and we'd love to have us all work together to put out regular releases again.

Just curious to know if the Beatles project is going to be part of this or that is a separate deal (or a dead project). Thanks.
