DLC for Wii Rock Band 2 coming early ’09

Despite recent reports that Rock Band 2 for the Wii would be shipping with DLC support right out of the gates, it looks like all you white-drum-kit-rocking … um … rockers out there are going to have to wait until the nebulous “early ’09” timeframe before you can get your download on.

According to a post by Harmonix Developer HMXSean over at the official Rock Band forums, “The downloadable content is in the final testing stages and Harmonix is working as fast as possible to deliver the 20 free bonus songs for Rock Band 2, plus an additional 30 songs from the Rock Band DLC Catalog to fans as early in 2009 as possible.”

On the bright side, the 84 songs on disc should hold you for a while, giving you plenty of time to clean out the fridge and/or stock up on SD cards to house that Tokio Hotel DLC you’ve been clamoring for.
