As we predicted in yesterday's rumor, a Beatles game is coming out of the partnership between Apple Corps and MTV. A conference call between these companies and Harmonix confirmed it as press listened in on the horn. This new title does not seem to be a Rock Band game, though.
This game will take players through the full Beatles catalog, from beginning to end. It's supposed to a celebration of the work of this legendary band. Input was gathered from Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon, and Olivia Harrison.
“By presenting their music and artistry through the creative filter of a groundbreaking video game, we are giving legions of fans and music lovers all over the world a profound, new way to experience The Beatles,” said Alex Rigopulos, CEO and Co-Founder, Harmonix. “This game will be a celebration of the Beatles undeniable legacy.”
Details are scarce on how the game will actually be played. The title is coming in 2009. We do know that musical controllers will be involved, but not much past that. More details are to be released soon.
