Harmonix Will Discontinue Rock Band DLC In April

Posted on Monday, February 18 @ 10:31:30 Eastern by Keri_Honea


Harmonix announced today
that there is a reason why their weekly song DLC for Rock Band has been declining over the last several months—the DLC will discontinue on April 2nd, thereby closing the door on their successful Rock Band franchise.

"We have managed to maintain a consistent release schedule for a staggering 275 consecutive weeks, releasing over 4,000 songs for the Rock Band Platform, but in recent months we’ve scaled production down as we’ve transitioned resources onto other projects. With several new titles in development and developers needed to usher these new games along, April 2nd will be the last weekly DLC release for Rock Band," wrote Harmonix on their company blog.

As a thanks for all of the support from fans over the years, Harmonix is going to continue their half-off sale for over 1,000 songs so fans can continue to build their libraries, even though nothing new will release after April 2nd.

Harmonix did not go into additional details about these new titles in development, so we're all left to wonder if these new games are music games or something completely different.

If you're curious exactly what the DLC closure will mean for the Rock Band leaderboards and user-generated content, Harmonix has posted an extensive FAQ on the matter.
