The lights are on
Paul McCartney, whose credits include The Beatles, posted the above image along with a quote about working with Bungie on his Facebook page.
The quote from Sir Paul McCartney says, “I’m really excited to be working on writing music with Bungie, the studio that made Halo.” The man on the left in the image above is Martin O'Donnell, the man behind Halo's unforgettable score.
It's a surprising partnership, but McCartney is not a complete stranger to the world of video games. He was invovled in the production of The Beatles: Rock Band, but I imagine that whatever Bungie is currently working on, it's probably much different than a rhythm game honoring the legacy of The Beatles. As a huge Beatles fan, and huge Bungie fan, I cannot wait to find out more about... whatever this is.

I'm kind of surprised by this news.
Paul and Marty in one box? AMAZING!
i never really got into the beatles but i would be curious to see how this turns out... i heard weird al turned this down.
Congrats to Marty O'Donnell. He's gone from writing music for Flintstones vitamins commercials to collaborating with Paul McCartney. That's quite a career path.
Martin O'Donnell is Legendary
i like how in the beginning of this news tidbit he has to put what Paul McCartney is famous for. I don't even like the beatles fan and i know this. whoever doesn't know this deserves to be shot for stupidity lol.
Really about time we found out what Bungie is making, it has been quite a while now.
This will either produce something amazing or something incredibly bad.
Whoa! No one saw this coming indeed! Majority of the the Beatles song I like had Paul as the leading vocals. Whatever Bungie is making, it's gonna have the best score I've heard!
Beatles? Never heard of em....
Now the beatle are gonna be in Halo 4 multiplayer playing there songs in the background haha
I smell something... something amazing.
I dont think i need to say how excited this makes me.
Best songwriter in our time, can't wait to see what's up here.
