Music games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero have waned in popularity over the last couple of years, and now April marks the final month of new DLC releases for the Rock Band series.

Developer Harmonix shared the news today in a blog post that April 2 will feature the last weekly DLC release for Rock Band. The developer said it has maintained a consistent schedule of DLC releases for 275 consecutive weeks, resulting in a catalog of over 4,000 songs available for download. 

The statement also laid out what the developer is planning for other titles such as Rock Band Blitz, explaining that “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 Rock Band Blitz, several Pro Guitar upgrades, and a handful of artists who have not yet appeared in Rock Band.”

In the meantime, Harmonix is continuing its ongoing DLC sale of 50 percent off over 1,100 songs. 

What do you think about the news? Are you still jamming with Rock Band, or are your plastic drums collecting dust?
