If you ever pondered on how the Gregorian Chant at the Halo title screen might have been a bit out of place in a Sci-Fi game Bungie is taking that disconnect one step further by turning to one of The Beatles. It has now been confirmed that Paul McCartney will be working with Bungie to produce music for their next series, which is called Destiny according to court documents parent company Activision was forced to release back in 2010. They also pegged the first entry in Destiny’s series to arrive in 2013.
Music is an important part of immersion in video games, and big name composers such as Hans Zimmer have been making their way into the industry. We can only speculate if the new series stars some sort of hippie Master Chief but who knows? Maybe they’re just going for an odd and memorable title theme again.
