Rock Band DLC comes to an end

It seems that Harmonix will be putting and end to its Rock Band DLC with no new downloadable songs after April 2, 2013. That date will mark the last weekly Rock Band release, according to a recent post on the official Rock Band forums.

“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.” wrote Rock Band manager of community development Aaron Trites in the post.

“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,” he added.

The last release in the series was Rock Band Blitz, which launched in August of 2012 for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.

The Overlord, the master, the one who tries to get things done… I think they call it the “Editor-in-Chief”… I may even be cooler than Master Chief, but that remains to be questioned.
