Rock Band 3 Back on Tour this Holiday Season Thanks to Mad Catz

Considering MTV Games has dissolved, selling off Harmonix to a holding company and discontinuing the Rock Band franchise until notice, this might be a sign of revival for the music game genre. Peripheral maker Mad Catz has purchased publishing rights to Rock Band 3 with plans to re-release the title this holiday season, obviously bundled with Mad Catz’ officially licensed guitars, drums, microphones, and keyboards. It does stand to note that Mad Catz can only confirm this re-release on the Xbox 360 for now, with more specific bundle details yet to have been released.

If the relaunch fares well, this may just be the first step towards Mad Catz becoming the next EA or Activision, with their own in-house studio and now a well-known franchise in their ranks.
