It all began with a tweet from internet tipster Superannuation, and a mysterious CV from a Passion Pictures employee with the words "HARMONIX ROCKBAND LED ZEPPELIN" in amongst the list of projects upon which she'd worked.
Sadly, though, Harmonix have quashed the rumours of a classic rock themed-title starring Mssrs. Plant, Page, Jones, and Bonham.
“As we’ve noted before, we’re constantly in talks with all major artists and labels,” the studio said in a statement to VG247.
“That said, Harmonix has never been in development on a Led Zeppelin game, though we’d obviously be thrilled to have them in Rock Band.”
The Beatles: Rock Band was a dazzlingly good title, rich in fan service, and fantastically crafted. Green Day's one was pretty good too. We can only imagine what could have been.
