Rock Band 4‘s promised January patch has been delayed, but totally dope Psychonauts gear is happening sooner to make up for it.


Harmonix confirmed the Rock Band 4 news on its blog, explaining that sometime between February 1 and 5 you’ll get audio improvements, “sweet Psychonauts gear”, proper leaderboard score postings from Play a Show mode, and the all-important score exploit fixes.

Future “monthly” patches from this point on should actually be monthly, with Harmonix explaining that it had to delay this one in order to catch a big ol’ bug that popped up when it made changes to the Overdrive Squeeze Not-An-Exploit. It has since splashed cold water on its face and taken a couple of deep breaths, and should be fine to meet future targets.

Players who are looking to export their Rock Band 1 content into Rock Band 4 will also be pleased to know that the wheels are turning on that front, with Harmonix saying it’s “closer than before” but “it’s unlikely we’ll see them this week”.
