ShackNews ran a piece today, pretty much reiterating our details from a couple weeks back, about the status of various Rock Band 2 release dates. Many retailers are still listing the release date for the standalone disc and individual instruments for Rock Band 2 on Xbox 360 as Sept. 14. All other console versions, along with the Xbox 360 "Special Edition" bundle with all the instruments included, are currently listed with an Oct. 19 release.

A Harmonix rep responded today to Joystiq's inquiry on the subject saying, "We have not confirmed this information yet."

Well, looking at the dates here, it's about time someone did.
