Rock Band - The Day the Music Died
Written Tuesday, April 02, 2013 By Lee BradleyView author's profile
It’s the end of an era. After over five years of constant support from Harmonix, and weekly news posts from us, today sees the arrival of the final Rock Band update ever.
“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,” said Harmonix recently.
“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.”
Well, that day is finally upon us and it’s the day the music died. Going out in a blaze of glory, the last Rock Band track to be added to the game’s bulging library is Don McLean’s American Pie.
“Whether you’ve downloaded every single song we’ve ever released,” says Harmonix, “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.”
A moment’s silence please.
O = support for keyboards
