This comes as a surprise given all the positive press surrounding Harmonix’s latest game, Dance Central. Anyways, it appears as though Viacom plans to sell off Harmonix. They didn’t cite the reason for the move, just that they plan to cut their losses. We know that music and rhythm games haven’t been selling as well as they once did, but to sell off such a powerhouse in the genre seems like a very ballsy move. After all, we’re talking about the original creators of Guitar Hero, Rock Band, and the just released Dance Central. It’s obvious these guys know what they’re doing.
Right now it’s looking like EA will buy them up, or Activision. Either way, we can guarantee you Harmonix isn’t just going to vanish.
