Rock Band PC crowdfunding campaign is about to fail

Well below target.

It looks like Harmonix’s crowdfunding campaign to bring Rock Band to PC is set to fail far below its target.

The publisher was initially looking for $1.5m, but the total amount of money pledged has only reached $718,997 (correct at the time of writing) with only 17 hours left to go. The campaign will tick over on April 6 at 4AM GMT, so if the company are unable to attract another $750,000+ within 24 hours, it looks like Rock Band for PC isn’t going to happen.

The fig.co crowdfund has managed to attract 1,599 backers––not enough to make the port a reality. Harmonix pledged to use $500k of their own money if the campaign succeeded, taking the real total to around $2m.

Harmonix are still planning to publish Rock Band VR for Oculus Rift later this year, regardless of whether their crowdfunding campaign fails.
