It’s Okay, Rock Band for iOS Is Not Going Anywhere, EA Says

Rock Band

According to Electronic Arts, the message users were getting informing them that Rock Band would no longer be available as of May 31 (image above) was a mistake.

Today, they told website Joystiq that the game will remain playable, with the following statement, “Rock Band for iOS will remain live – the in-app message users received yesterday was sent in error.” That added that they are working to clarify the issue and “will share additional information as soon as possible.”

We’re sure gamers who were fans of the game will breath a sigh of relief as they can continue rocking out on their iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.

Either way, this does raise questions about digital distribution and ownership of such games and apps, but that’s a whole different (and much bigger) beast to look into.
