Harmonix and MTV Games have announced Rock Band 2 is coming to Xbox 360 in September exclusively in North America and on Xbox 360, with additional territories and platforms to be announced at a later date after the exclusivity window closes.
Rock Band 2’s extensive song pool will be comprised entirely of studio master recordings featuring rock’s “most prolific acts.”
The drum and guitar peripherals have been enhanced functionality and design-wise.
The new instruments will be fully backwards compatible with the original Band and vice-versa. Additionally, all songs included with or purchased for the original Rock Band can be seamlessly added to Rock Band 2.
Additional Rock Band 2 details, including descriptions of new online modes, will be released at the E3 Summit in mid-July.
