Rock Band confirmed for Wii

rockbandCrammed within the EA’s back-to-back news bulletins about game delays and financial results was the brief word that Rock Band will be heading to Wii. While a release date wasn’t given, John Riccitiello, CEO of EA, hinted at a "coming launch" of the Wii version of Rock Band, so it could be sooner than we think.

Apparently this was hinted back in April 2007 when Alex Rigopulos, CEO of Harmonix, hinted that Rock may be heading to Wii.

At the time, he said, "We will, at some time, bring Rock Band to every platform. I think the Wiimote is something that holds enormous promise."

Interestingly enough, a Rock Band-like game is already heading to Wii called, appropriately enough, Wii Music. Unfortunately, it’s heading to Japan sometime this year so a worldwide release may be further off than Rock Band’s release for the Wii.
