Harmonix’s rock solid 2010 rock ‘n’ roll game Rock Band 3 will be re-released later this year under the guidance of a new publisher, Mad Catz. That’s right. The people who make Rock Band guitar and keyboard controllers are now publishing the game.
Mad Catz, better known for its joysticks, gamepads and expensive flight sim gear, recently announced its intentions to start developing and publishing games. It’s snapping up publishing rights to Rock Band 3 for “this holiday season and beyond,” taking over where defunct publisher MTV Games left off.
Publisher Mad Catz says it will bundle Rock Band 3 software with its Rock Band 3 wireless keyboard controller, Wireless Fender Stratocaster guitar controller and Wireless Fender Mustang PRO guitar controller for the re-release.
