MTV has reportedly denied that a Jimi Hendrix version of Rock Band is in the works.

"While we have not made any official announcements regarding Jimi Hendrix and Rock Band, we are excited to say that we are in discussions to bring more of his music to our platform," a spokesperson told Kotaku.

However, the site was also told that did not include a standalone game.

Earlier this week the LA Times reported comments made by Hendrix' stepsister Janie, who controls his estate, that the guitarist's music would be "available through every type of media" and that Janie had said this included a new version of Rock Band due out before the end of the year.
