Harmonix Apparently Working on a New Game For XBLA

Having released Dance Central 2 into the wild most recently, Harmonix has been supporting both that game and Rock Band with additional tracks, but we've heard little in the way of fresh game announcements from the developer since it turned indie last year.
However, a resume spotted by Superogatory has Brian Chan as Lead Designer on an "unannounced title" for Harmonix, with platforms for the project listed as the Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and Facebook. Could it be another music title for the studio famed for rhythm games?
Harmonix CEO Florian Hunziker recently stated that the dev has several music games in the pipeline that "won't resemble" its established franchises, so a music game seems like a safe bet.
Harmonix has also since issued the following statement on the matter to Shacknews, pretty much confirming the info spotted on the resume: "As we've stated before, our studio is growing and hard at work on a variety of titles. In a storied Harmonix tradition, our designers start working on those games before they're publicly announced. We're excited to confirm more information soon, probably via a LinkedIn update or something - we haven't decided."
As always, stay tuned!
