Rock Band developer Harmonix has confirmed that the game franchise’s weekly song updates will be brought to an end on April 2nd. The developer has said they have scaled down production of downloadable tracks in order to transition to 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,” said Harmonix.
Harmonix has been able to keep up their weekly release schedule for 275 consecutive weeks, releasing over 4,000 songs for the Rock Band Network platform.
Releases in the coming weeks include the remaining tracks from Rock Band Blitz, Pro Guitar upgrades, and “a handful of artists who have not yet appeared in Rock Band”.
