This news was revealed by the music icon himself (via Twitter), where he said:
I’m really excited to be working on writing music with
@bungie, the studio that made Halo.” – Paul
Along with the tweet, McCartney also showed a picture of him with Bungie composer Marty O’Donnell (shown above).
Odds are, this collaboration is for Bungie’s “Destiny” game franchise they’re working on for publisher Activision as part of their 10-year deal.
Bungie’s first game for the publisher is scheduled for an autumn 2013 release for the Xbox 360 and Xbox 720. The studio’s entire road map was released to the public as part of the now-concluded Activision vs. Respawn lawsuit which ruled in favor of the latter.
We’ll post more info on this as it becomes available. In the meantime, “let it be” and all that.
