Hey gang,

 As you may have seen in our recent announcement regarding the release of Rock Band Blitz tracks as singles, Rock Band DLC production has gradually slowed over the past 5 years. We’ve 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.

 While there is no content currently scheduled beyond April 2nd, we still have DLC releases lined up for the next few weeks, including the remaining tracks from RB Blitz, several Pro guitar upgrades, and a handful of artists who have not yet appeared in Rock Band. We’re incredibly proud of the DLC milestones we’ve set, especially producing the largest music library of any game available, and we wouldn’t have been able to release as much outstanding content without the support of our amazing community. As thanks to the community, we’re going to continue the ongoing DLC sale of 50% off over 1,100 songs so fans can continue to build their personal libraries from our back catalog.

 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.


 Rock On,

 Harmonix Music Systems

Knew the day was coming and although I am disappointed 5 years is a long time to support a game with DLC.  I have over 1000 songs and it taught me how to play the drums so kudos to Harmonix.   I still play to this day and hopefully will continue for years to come and just maybe they will introduce a new game in the series.

Some of my favorite gaming memories come from Rock Band.

it's kinda sad that an era is ending, but I haven't really been buying much DLC anyways as it's hard to get replacement instruments anymore for a decent price.

Is this confirmation that there will not be a next gen Rock Band?

They've pretty much moved onto the Dance Central series along with iOS VidRhythm.  Planning long-term might be another thing, but I think it will be a while before we see another game that requires the investment in custom hardware in addition to the console.

This makes me very sad.

I'm also sad that it means we'll likely never see Zeppelin.

As a big Rock Band supporter, definitely both amazing to see how long they did DLC for their games as well as sad to see it end.  I don't think I want to look back and see how much money I spent.  I will say that I still buy DLC to this day, so I've been buying it for a long time and have a lot of songs.

The Band Hero bundle seems to be on sale every few months.  According to Cheapass Gamer, it's on sale now at Tuesday Morning stores (if you have one of those near you) for $30.  They've also been on sale at places like Big Lots and I got the full kit for $35 with free shipping at Newegg several months ago.

Is that true?  Awesome, if so.

good,maybe they wont take up the whole damn marketplace for new DLC from now on,why they don't use 1 Game cover i don't know..click on the 1 game cover to see what new DLC is out,not take up most of the 100 spaces with Rock Band game covers

Although saying that Gears of War Judgement has it beat this week for doing that  Roll Eyes

Yeah, that system is irritating.

Plus, you'd get two for each of those indie band tracks.
