Not for Guitar Hero or Rock Band

Well, the rumors have continued to fly that the next versions of both Rock Band and Guitar Hero would feature the addition of a keyboard, but that seems not to be the case, at least not this time around.
A good majority of the songs just don’t have keyboard parts, and due to this fact it just does not make sense for them to add a keyboard at this time. What is more likely is that we will see a new game that is likely to be titled Keyboard Hero at some point in the future, as RedOctane did file a trademark application back in 2006 for that name.
While we don’t know the specifics, we do think that a keyboard title is coming at some point in the future. The real question is if they will integrate it into Rock Band/Guitar Hero or whether it will be a standalone title. We think that it is likely that we will see both, but only the future knows what is next for this ever growing segment of gaming.
