Hey everyone,

Good news on this side, RBN songs are staying up for purchase!

With the news that XBLIG content would be pulled in late September, concerns sprouted around purchasing Rock Band Network songs (which were user-submitted through the Xbox Live Indie Games portion of Xbox 360) for use in Rock Band 2 and Rock Band 3.

We're here to say there is no concern, as the content will remain up for purchase past this month. We don't have a hard date on if or when they will come down, but we'll be sure to update as details reach us.

If you're on the fence about ANY RBN songs, best to get them ASAP.

Better to be safe than sorry.

So, basically RBN will continue to stay up?

For now, yes. But as WoodenGlory said, if there's something you want to get, you should go get it soon. Microsoft is shuttering previous-gen console services, and it's hard to say how much longer these tracks will be available.

I would like that to happen, too but ...
- there's the nightmare of relicensing songs when dealing with literally thousands of stakeholders (including authoring groups that likely no longer exist)
- previous-gen DLC entitlements are still being worked on almost two years post-launch
- Harmonix is a much smaller studio than it was during the RBN heyday
- they're getting DropMix out the door this month and have a Switch game in development, plus it sounds like they have other unannounced projects they're allocating resources to

tl;dr - RBN seems pretty low on the priority list
