Media giant Viacom announced plans to sell Rock Band developer Harmonix during its third quarter financial results report this morning. Support for the franchise and Dance Central will continue.

The earnings statement says Viacom expects to sell Harmonix within a year. The business segment to which the game developer belonged, Media Networks, reported strong revenues for the nine month reporting period that ended September 30, 2010.

We've put in requests for comment from Harmonix and Viacom. Harmonix is still working on its statement, but a Viacom representative told Kotaku that Harmonix would continue work on Rock Band games and on Dance Central.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
