Although Rock Band iOS players were recently notified that the game will become unplayable at the end of the month, publisher EA has announced the game will remain functional.
The following in-game notification is now showcased to Rock Band iOS players:
"A special note: Rock Band will remain playable on your device. Please disregard the previous notification regarding availability. We're sorry for the confusion."
EA's explanation of the message was that it had been "sent in error".
"We apologise for the confusion this caused. We're working to clarify the issue that caused the error and will share additional information as soon as possible."
Yesterday, the iOS version of Rock Band prompted a message that stated the game would become unplayable after May 31, with the listing of the game not being updated to reflect the forthcoming shutdown. The Internet raged accordingly, and the game's page on the App Store was quickly flooded with negative reviews.
