Harmonix: A "lot more" in the motion gaming domain inbound

Harmonix CEO Alex Rigopulos has hinted at new products in the works, possibly in motion gaming.

"There’s a high degree of creative energy here right now about motion gaming," Rigopulos told Edge.

"Dance Central is a bridge from music gaming into motion gaming, we’ve developed both a competency and preoccupation with the creative potential of motion gaming, and it’s safe to say you’ll see a lot more in that domain from Harmonix beyond Dance Central. ... I think there’s staggering creative potential that’s largely unexplored."

The CEO echoed these sentiments in a second interview with Destructoid, adding "Right now, the environment here at Harmonix is really a kind of cauldron of creativity. There's a ton of creative engagement and creative excitement around a number of things."

Later, he explained that Hamonix's new shareholders were proving supportive of "a ton of new game concepts in development".

"In terms of new creative development and new IP cultivation ... we have a lot of very cool new ideas in the works right now, looking out beyond both Rock Band and Dance Central."

But that doesn't mean the studio is abandoning the music genre.

"We do feel that there's more to do in that space, and that doing more involves reconception of what music games mean, and what other ways there are to connect people with music -- and to connect with other people through music -- that haven't really been explored yet," he said.
