Over the past 5 years, we’ve released over 4,000 songs for the Rock Band Platform. The most loyal of you are aware that our DLC production has slowed over time as Harmonix has grown to take on multiple titles beyond the Rock Band franchise. In this new year, with multiple new IPs in development, our production pipeline is continuing on this trend, resulting in fewer songs per week.
As we’ve done previously for track packs, we’ve always planned to release the great soundtrack to Rock Band Blitz as singles for those Rock Band fans who are more particular about what songs they add to their library. For the next few weeks, we’re going to alternate a week of new releases with a week of Rock Band Blitz single releases. This means Rock Band will still be delivering great tracks every week to the Rock Band Music Store, will be bringing these Blitz songs to the Wii for the first time, and will continue to support the Rock Band Network community for their rolling releases on Xbox 360. Also, we have Pro Upgrades planned for a selection of the Rock Band Blitz tracks, so even if you’ve exported already, there will be content that’s new for you.
If you haven’t grabbed Rock Band Blitz yet, you definitely should – it’s a ridiculous value at $15 USD for 25 great tracks. If not, stay tuned – RBB singles are headed your way.
We’ve opened up this thread HERE for your questions. There’s definitely still some great content in the works for Rock Band, so keep tuned to the forums for more information.
