Harmonix recently took the idea of bringing Rock Back 4 to PC to crowdfunding platform Fig, asking for $1.5 million to help bring its popular music game to PC. And with the campaign ending with about half of that target amount raised, it looks like the prospect of a PC version of Rock Band 4 has sadly been put back on the shelf.

Failing to reach the target amount was a particularly tough moment for the team at Harmonix, who were ready to invest their own money to make it a reality. In a statement posted to the Fig page for Rock Band 4 PC, Hamronix thanked it supporters and noted the disappointment in not being able to resurrect the Rock Band Network service.

How do we feel about the end of the campaign? Disappointed, obviously. There’s no shortage of people at Harmonix who love Rock Band, and some of us got extra excited at the prospect of bringing back RBN, and even more about getting the chance to expose RB to a brand new audience.

But at the same time we learned exactly what we needed to learn: there doesn’t seem to be enough of an audience to make Rock Band for PC a viable project for us right now. We're committed to supporting and improving RB4 on consoles. To be clear, we raised nearly $800,000 via backers and investors; it's an impressive showing of support from our community and for our brand. But as an independent developer we have to be careful about how much money and development time we risk on a project we’re not sure has a big enough audience, and crowdfunding allowed us to (among other things) judge the market fit for Rock Band PC.

At least Rock Band VR is still coming.

Its a shame it didn't happen, but 1.5 million was a big ask
