Regular Dance Central 3 DLC releases ending this month

Dance Central 3's regular schedule of downloadable dance routines will end this month, developer Harmonix announced today.

"This month will be the last DLC for Dance Central 3 for the near future," the company said.

Last month, Harmonix announced it would end the weekly schedule of Rock Band DLC song releases on April 2. The studio cited the same reason for the end of Dance Central 3 updates as it did for Rock Band: Harmonix is "[moving] forward with several new titles currently in development," and "the talented developers who make [Dance Central] content are needed on other projects."

Harmonix pointed out that between the importation of Dance Central and Dance Central 2 routines and all the downloadable songs the company has released, the Dance Central library now contains more than 200 tracks. Unlike the Rock Band franchise, Harmonix didn't quite put out Dance Central content on a weekly basis.

The studio also promised that it will continue to provide new Live Challenges and support the games' leaderboards, and that the Music Store will remain available for users to purchase tracks in the future.

Dance Central was a Kinect launch title in November 2010. Harmonix launched Dance Central 2 in October 2011 and Dance Central 3 in October 2012.
