As part of our transition to an independent company, Harmonix is moving our Rock Central server data to a new facility. So what does that mean for you as a player? During this period of maintenance, online features for our slate of titles will experience periodic (but temporary) outages. Details will follow in this thread, so stay tuned. Here’s the information we can share with you today!
- Beginning at Midnight 5/4/11 there will be no online play or leaderboard updates for TBRB Xbox 360 for the remainder of the week
- Other updates to the rest of our titles and platforms will be rolling out over the next 3-4 weeks. We will update this thread with more information as it is available.
- During those weeks, each game for each platform will be down for maintenance for a period of 48-72 hours. During that time, online gameplay, leaderboard data, the Rock Band Store and certain web features will be unavailable. Any achievements or in-game goals you unlock during this time should register the next time you are able to connect to Rock Central
- The website should not experience any planned outages during this time, so you can check the forums for the latest information about the Rock Central migration. Certain sections of the website (leaderboards & battles, for example) will be unavailable during Rock Band 3 server migration.
Additionally, these servers are only used to store game data and live net based features for the Rock Band franchise. They do not store personal information or any financial information related to your Rock Band library or song purchase history.
Stay tuned to this thread and to @RockBand on Twitter for updates and advanced warnings about which games will be going offline. We’re doing our best to do this quickly and simply to get you up and rocking ASAP.

We just found out from our Live OPs team that they're going to try to get the majority of the PS3 maintenance taken care of while the PSN is down. We'll be focusing on all RB titles over the next week, but as long as the PSN is down you shouldn't notice anything. We just wanted to pass along an update in case the PSN came back online ahead of the schedule that Sony has been projecting.
We'll update with more info if the situation changes.
