Paul McCartney, former-Beatle, will be working with Bungie to provide music for the company's upcoming series of games code-named "Destiny." Sir Paul tweeted the Bungie news this morning, along with the photograph you see above. He posted:
“I’m really excited to be working on writing music with @bungie, the studio that made Halo. - Paul"
The news of Destiny dropped during the discovery phase of the since-settled lawsuit between Activision and Modern Warfae creators Vince Zampella and Jason West, when documents detailing the project were released by the court. Destiny is a series of four "massively multiplayer-style…sci-fantasy, action shooter games" to be released every other year, beginning in the fall of 2013. Bungie also agreed to put out four downloadable expansion packs code-named "Comet," every other year beginning in the fall of 2014.
This won't be Sir Paul's first foray into video games. Most notably, McCartney was instrumental (get it?) in music game The Beatles: Rock Band. This is, however, the first time Sir Paul has composed music for a game.
