Some are music games,some are not “full-on rhythm-action games,” according to brand management boss and comm director John Drake. “Some of them are brand new things that we created from our guts and brains here at Harmonix. Some of them are sort of like things we’re explaining the universe of. It’s not Amplitube or Frequency. I’m not talking about Rock Band 4. I’m not talking about the next Dance Central game. I’m talking about new, crazy stuff.”
