Business as usual for Harmonix during the sale
The Rock Band studio Harmonix has said that they will continue to support all their games as normal through the sale process.
Viacom, Harmonix's parent company has promised to keep the developer ticking over as they continue to work on Rock Band 3 and Dance Central.
A spokesperson for Viacom said: "As announced this morning, Viacom plans to sell Harmonix and have reclassified Harmonix to a discontinued operation. However, this announcement does not affect the ongoing work at the studio as they continue to support Rock Band and Dance Central. Viacom's decision to exit this business reflects our strategy of focusing entirely on what they do best: make great branded entertainment content and deliver it through a variety of platforms."
The statement added:"Harmonix has and will continue to create terrific video games. But for us, it is about focus. Viacom is in discussions with several potential buyers and will continue to fully support the business until a sale is completed."
