A number of employees that worked on Rock Band 4 have been posting five-star reviews of the game on Amazon.
The claim started as a rumour posted on reddit, although the game’s developer Harmonix confirmed that a “few employees” had inappropriately posted reviews.
A spokesperson for Harmonix told Destructoid: “Harmonix has clarified its internal policy about posting reviews of our own products on retail sites, and we’ve asked that existing reviews be edited to identify Harmonix employees or be removed entirely.
“While we believe the reviews posted by a few employees were sincere and without ill intentions, as a studio we don’t believe these are appropriate actions. We appreciate the feedback from the community, and take our relationship with our fans seriously.”
Rock Band 4 launched on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Tuesday, October 6th, 2015.
