Det Chief Insp Lz Hopkinson, of GMP's Major Incident Team, has previously said: "This incident resulted in the loss of a man's life, which will be devastating for his loved ones.
"We are still working to inform the victim's next of kin so he can be formally identified. Specialist officers are ready to support them through this process and beyond.
"One man is in custody but our investigation is ongoing.
"Although we have lines of enquiry to follow, we would still ask anyone with information which may assist us to share that information with us directly or via Crimestoppers anonymously.
"This incident happened as a number of licensed premises in the town centre were closing for the night so it is likely members of the public saw or heard something which is relevant.
"We know people in Rochdale are concerned by what has happened but I would like to reassure them that we are committed to establishing the full circumstances and ensuring anyone responsible for committing a criminal offence is identified and faces justice.
"Extra officers will be in the area this week so anyone with concerns can talk to them."
