Is Harmonix's Combat Game Called Chroma?

Here’s more evidence that Rock Band Devs Harmonix are striking out beyond straight-up music games.

Following a recent report that the company is working on a real-time combat game for next gen comes a trademark filing for something called “Chroma.”

We’ve not got much to go on apart from a logo and a link to the trademark filing itself, but the revelation would suggest that Harmonix’s new venture has a name. 

We’re keen to get our hands on it. A combat game from Harmonix sounds bonkers enough to be interesting. What do you lot think?

I won't rule them out until they've tried and failed. For a bunch of rhythm junkies, you gotta give them props for trying to branch out.

Probably a Kinect-based title.

@1 O ye of little faith giv them a chance and u shall c what they can do after all there is nothing wrong with game developers trying new things, such is the beauty of being a game developer it gives you the chance to experiment what games you are and are not good making.

I got a feeling it's going to be something similar to Brutal Legends.

I'd rather see another Guitar Hero Game, now that they stop releasing them I kinda miss them. I was always one game behind (due to money shortage), but now I'm caught up and I miss the franchise. Whatever they're doing, I hope it will be good.

That's one hell of a logo.
