After 275 weeks of continuous downloadable song updates for the Rock Band series, Harmonix has announced that this will be ending on April 2nd. Until then DLC releases have been scheduled to include the rest of the tracks from RB Blitz, a few Pro guitar upgrades, and the debut of artists who have not yet appeared in Rock Band. There will also be a DLC sale consisting of over 1,100 songs for 50% off.
Harmonix then went forth and thanked their fans with this statement,
We hope that you’ll all agree that this has been a tremendous run, and you should know it’s a ride that we at Harmonix have been thrilled to be a part of. We’re going to continue to support the forums and RockBand.com and hope to still see you rocking out online, in photos of Rock Band parties shared on Twitter and Facebook, or here on the forums. Whether you waited in line for a midnight release of Rock Band over 5 years ago, or you just joined the party with Rock Band Blitz… whether you’ve downloaded every single song we’ve ever released, or you’ve just played on disc songs until your neighbors moved away… whether you’re a metal shredder, or a bubblegum pop singer… thank you for being a part of our band.
While Rock Band has decreased in popularity over the past few years it is certain that those who played it will always remember the good times they have had with the series.
