While Rock Band DLC may be going strong this quarter, things are much different for the ‘Hero’ games, as Activision has announced that all DLC for all the Guitar Hero, DJ Hero, and Band Hero games will be unavailable for purchase after March 31st, 2014.
Things aren’t all bad though, with as much as 50% taken off select song/track packs on PS3, 360, and Wii (specifics weren’t given, just that you should check the store on your console). As well, the servers will still stay online after the DLC goes away, and any DLC you’ve already downloaded won’t be affected.
You can read the statement from the Guitar Hero Facebook Page below:
Sad to say that the downloadable songs for the Guitar Hero, DJ Hero and Band Hero games, and the Guitar Hero mobile game will no longer be available after March 31, 2014. The Guitar Hero servers will stay online and any previously purchased downloadable content is unaffected by this change.
We want to thank all of you for supporting Guitar Hero over the last nine years. To celebrate this great community, selected songs and tracks will be available for as much as a 50% discount on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii from now until the end of the month.
For more information, please visit the store on your console.
Also, over at the iTunes store, the mobile game will also be available at a special discount until the end of the month.
