EA pulling Rock Band for iOS from iTunes App Store at the end of the month

Back in May, gamers loading up EA’s Rock Band for iOS were greeted with a statement saying that the game would “expire” by the end of the month. EA later claimed that the message was sent in error, but little did we know that it was only prediction of things to come. We’re not sure if the message was generated in anticipation of this or if this is merely coincidence, but EA has now officially announced that Rock Band for iOS will no longer be available for purchase on the 31st of July, along with downloads of purchased songs. However the game and all of the songs attached to the game will still be able to play locally.

What this means is that if you delete Rock Band for iOS on your phone, don’t expect to be able to get it back by redownloading it, unless of course you back it up to iCloud. According to a statement released on their website, EA claims that this is due to the licensing agreement with Harmonix which is ending, and by the looks of it, there are no plans to renew it either. More information along with some FAQs can be found at EA’s website.
