Paul McCartney is working with Bungie, the studio that brought us Halo, according to a tweet from his verified Twitter account. Along with this statement, “I’m really excited to be working on writing music with @bungie, the studio that made Halo,” he included a picture of him working with Halo composer Martin O’Donnell.
Neither Bungie nor the former Beatle confirmed the project they were collaborating on, but many speculate that it has something to do with Destiny, the details of which were released after a boring court case between Activision and Call of Duty studio Inifity Ward. Somehow Bungie was involved in all this as well.The court case between Activision and the former heads of Call of Duty studio Infinity Ward has yielded new information on the publisher’s deal with Halo creators Bungie. The Los Angeles Times reports the 10-year deal requires Bungie to create four “sci-fantasy, action shooter games, with the first launching in fall 2013. Details of the partnership were revealed through a 2010 contract unsealed as part of Activision’s Call of Duty lawsuit. The other three games of the project, code-named “Destiny,” would release every other year, while downloads nicknamed “Comet” would be available in alternating years beginning with 2014.
This isn’t McCartney’s first time working composing music for video games. His most notable work has been in the release of The Beatles: Rockband.
