Harmonix Doesn’t Know Why Mobile Rock Band Has An Expiration Date

The iOS version of Rock Band could expire on May 31, according to an image, originally posted on Reddit, that has been circulating the internet today.

The Rock Band app, which sells for $5.49 on iTunes, purportedly says it will no longer work at the end of this month. As of this writing, iTunes has no warning or indication that the application has an expiration date.

In response to Kotaku‘s request for comment, a representative from developer Harmonix said they don’t know why the app gave that notification.

“EA Mobile is responsible for the publishing and hosting of Rock Band on iOS,” a Harmonix representative said. “We’re reaching out to them to better understand what’s happening with the app.”

Earlier this year, EA pulled its Tetris iPad app in favour of a new, enhanced version that customers had to buy again.

We’ve reached out to EA Mobile for comment and will update should we hear anything.

Wtf!? “Thanks”, EA! [Reddit — thanks, Steve!]
