Following the blog post over at, Hardline was delayed in order to fine-tune the overall experience by tweaking different aspects of the mutliplayer based on feedback from the Battlefield Hardline beta which launched in June. The report also detailed plans on improving the story for the single-player campaign in the game as well as adding stability in order to avoid the server issues that Battlefield 4 experiencing at launch.

The popular music series by Harmonix, Rock Band may be seeing another installment very soon according to a survey that the game developer sent out to its fans. The survey asks users about their excitement regarding a new installment of the series and even hints towards a ‘legacy’ version for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii or a current-gen version for the Xbox One, PS4, and WiiU.

As a long time fan of the series, I would hope that Rock Band would makes it way back in some form; even if it wasn’t with all the plastic instruments. Since Rock Band 3 was released back in 2011, Rocksmith has been dominating the music genre by making it possible for players to use a real guitar as opposed to the plastic instruments that Rock Band and Guitar Hero utilize.

Since halting the production of Rock Band DLC in April 2013, Harmonix has been busy developing games such as the Kinect-enabled Fantasia: Music Evolved and Dance Central Spotlight for the Xbox One.
