The Rock Band Network has been sunsetted

Harmonix has called it a day on its Rock Band Network online store, a place where users could upload and sell their own music through the Rock Band games. Rock Band Network originally launched back in 2010, and since then, more than 2,000 songs have been uploaded to the service. Of course, Harmonix has not released a Rock Band game in a few years now, and this week announced it is officially sunsetting the store. "Since the official Harmonix DLC pipeline closed on 4/2/2013, RBN has been plagued with technical issues," says Aaron Trites, manager of Community Development at the company. As a result, Harmonix is no longer accepting new tracks for the game, although the company noted that songs currently available via the service will continue to be available for sale.
