Hey everyone, considering PS5 is set to release soon & of course the new Xbox Series X is also around the corner, what can we expect from RB? Is there going to be a RB4 port or RB5? Or will we see them trying to keep going on PS4/XB1? Im very impressed with how they kept going this long even out living Guitar Hero. I cant say I would be surprised if they dont make another RB game since this wasnt really a commercial success by any means. It has its loyal players & this wonderful community but a majority of this community (including me) mainly plays RB3. The problem was that they never did anything to force players to have to switch outside of RB4 exclusive DLC. Just look at the fact that Keys were defunct in RB4. I love many of the new DLC songs & theyve gotten songs & artists I never thought they would. Im honestly feeling like this new iteration of RB is coming to an end with less fan interest & the fact that a majority of us just play RB3 since we have past DLC & custom tracks. For me there was no reason to go to RB4 outside of the new DLC. I also truthfully dont care much for the new interface in RB4. Heres to hoping that we either continue to get RB4 DLC or we get a new RB game down the line for PS5/XBSX

If we get lucky, they may release a port of RB4 for the new generation consoles, or if we get EXTREMELY lucky, they may release a RB4 with all the DLC in disc. But the odds are really really low

My personal opinion is what we see of Rock Band now is the last we'll see of Rock Band. No one will want to invest in the hardware it takes to make it happen and this game is pretty much relegated to the die hard fans of this genre. This is what happens when you don't innovate to keep moving something forward. RB4 is basically RB3 with missing features and a few new ideas (Rivals, Brutal Mode) thrown in. RIP Rock Band.

 

But hey, we'll always have customs, which to me was the biggest gift I could have ever received with this game. =-)

ya i bought RB4 before i knew of customs, plus i bought a PS4 only to get to play RB4 and if i knew of customs beforehand i probably would not have.

 

if another RB came out or was ported to PS5 i would most likely pass unless there was a really big reason to invest in it.

PS5 is capable of running PS4 games, so you will be able to keep playing RB4 on the new PS5, and DLC will keep coming.

That's all I think there will be.

It's not automatically backward compatible with all games and I doubt Rock Band is in the Top 100.

Even if it were, they aren't saying all top 100 will be playable either.

And the hardware isn't automatically recognized. I doubt highly it will be playable on the ps5 without some level of intervention and investment that doesn't really seem worth it to either party at this point.

Pretty much. I was a die heart GH fan back in 2005. I still love GH/RB games but it's just hard to keep up nowadays because we are adult now. I said "I don't think I never going to see another Guitar Hero game again". Guitar Hero and Rock Band are dead franchise now. R.I.P. Guitar Hero and Rock Band.
