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
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.
