We'll keep this short and sweet. Amazon sent out notices this morning to customers that Rock Band
had been delayed until late 2008. That is just plain wrong says Harmonix's PR. They have absolutely no idea how it happened, but when they asked Amazon to update their information to correct the error, Amazon then shifted all Rock Band content to 2008
. Rock Band
is still planned for this November with an official release date being announced "very soon."
A representative for Harmonix tells Joystiq, "We have asked Amazon to address this and we'll be coming out November of this year. We've requested they update their information. We have no idea where that date came from." So all those preparing to rock, and especially those that pre-ordered their Rock Band
bundle off Amazon, it looks like everything's gonna be all right.
[Thanks to all those who sent this in]
