Has EA given up on Rock Band?

I can't understand you gamers.

First, everybody complains that a numbered Guitar Hero sequel is coming every year and that it is destroying the music game industry.

Now, people are complaining that Harmonix is not releasing a new Rock Band so soon, sticking with our beloved weekly DLCs.

I really don't hope they release Rock Band 3 in 2010. Also, I don't know why Green Day: Rock Band isn't in this year's schedule. Not that I care, of course =P
