Green Day is coming to Rock Band. Finally. I mean, it makes sense right? The band has a ton of fans and they fit under the umbrella of “rock” so it’s a pretty natural move.
What’s not all that clear is whether we’ll be seeing a full Rock Band: Green Day game or a track pack. I’d personally vote for downloadable tracks because we’d all get our hands on them sooner but if I had to guess, I’d say they’re working on a full game. They have more than enough tracks to fill an entire game and you’d think that downloadable tracks would have been made available already if they weren’t working on a full game.
Luckily, Green Day frontman Billy Joe Armstrong cleared it all up for everyone on KROQ this morning when he said:
“Uh yeah, we’re doing a whole Green Day Rock Band… uh.” And when asked when we’d see the game, he said. “I’m not sure… soon. Like I think not this week, but this year soon… by the end of this year.”
So “a whole Green Day Rock Band” would make it seem like an entire game and the fact that the band hasn’t gone in to do all the motion capture stuff means that it probably won’t be out for a while. All of this information is still in limbo so take everything with a grain of salt. We’ll hopefully hear more soon.
