This year marks the 50th anniversary of Queen’s final line up in Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon after the latter joined the band as bassist. No doubt there are all sorts of surprises for fans this year to celebrate a half-century of incredible rock. And the latest is something of a mystery teased by May and Taylor on their social media accounts.
The short video includes the text: “This year they will rock you on mobile. 1st March.”
While the footage intriguingly features CGI animated versions of the four Queen band members standing in their iconic Bohemian Rhapsody pose.
May wrote on his Instagram: “Eeek ! Fun and games !!! Bri.” While Taylor simply added: “Coming soon….”
Considering the tease involves 3D characters coming to mobile perhaps there’s a Queen mobile game app about to be announced?

While Queen drummer Taylor wrote: “When we do eventually get to play in front of live audiences it will be with a ferociously renewed attack….. We are disappointed but we WILL be back!”
And Lambert said: “It’s so disappointing to have to postpone again, but safety comes first!
“Roger Taylor, Brian May and myself look forward to spring 2022 when we will be back, better than ever!”
