Harmonix Developing for Samsung Gear VR
Peter Donnell / 2 years ago
Harmonix are well known for their work on the Rock Band and Dance Central series, and now it looks like the team are working on the newly revealed Samsung Gear VR headset, which has been created in collaboration with Oculus VR.
“Harmonix is developing software for Samsung’s Gear VR,” wrote the studio’s community man Nick Chester on Twitter. “More info soon!”
“I can’t wait for folks to see the crazy project I’ve been on at Harmonix for Samsung’s Gear VR,” added Harmonix lighting specialist Dawn Rivers.
What Harmonix are working on is still a mystery, but they’re the first game developer we’ve heard make any kind of announcement of the Gear VR. While I wouldn’t rule out their Rock Band and Dance Central franchises for the new device, the team are currently working on a range of new titles; A City Sleeps, Fantasia: Music Evolved, Amplitude HD, MIA Chroma and not forgetting Dance Central: Spotlight which launched this week. So one or more of these titles could easily be on their way to the device.
