It looks like the initial story FIRST featured here on Tuesday, and subsequently everywhere else on the web yesterday, about the Rock Band iOS app being “no longer playable” at the end of the month got the attention of EA. They contacted several outlets , including us, to let us know that apparently the message was “sent in error.” The app will continue to be playable after the original May 31st expiration date.
According to an official statement sent to us directly from EA:
Rock Band for iOS will remain live – the in-app message users received yesterday was sent in error. We apologize 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.
And if you go in to the app now, you are also greeted with the new message above.
Nice job to everyone that spread the word, and a respectful thank you to EA for doing what’s fair in the end.
