CONFIRMED: Harmonix and MTV Games to Make a Game Based on The Beatles

Posted in Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 30, 2008 by Jonathan Cullen

Apple Corps, MTV Game and Harmonix Gamesh have just announced that Harmonix will be developing a game based on The Beatles.

No platforms have been announced but we can assume it will be on PLAYSTATION 3 and Xbox 360, possibly Nintendo Wii and PlayStation 2 but it will be out before christmas next year.

The game will not fall under the Rock Band name despite the fact that Harmonix are developing it and it is unclear if some Beatles stuff will go on the Rock Band shop at the time. Peripherals weren’t disscussed but it does sound like it will work with peripherals from Rock Band.

Giles Martin, son of the infamous 5th Beatle and their producer Sir George Martin, will be overseeing the project with every album and every song they ever did being on the game.

The game also has the blessing of Sir Paul Mc’Cartney, Ringo Starr and the widows of John Lennon and Sir George Harrison, Olivia Harrison and Yoko Ono.

CEO and Co-founder of Harmonix, Alex Rigopulos, stated that it was “a dream project”

The full press release is after the jump.

Everybody now… NAAAAAAAAAA NA NA NANNY NA NA! NANNY NA NA… HEY JUDE!

According to Kotaku, MTV and Apple Corps will be holding a very special press conference from 2pm BST tomorrow where it is expected that in some way, Rock Band will welcome a very big band probably the biggest band that ever existed to it’s catologue, The Beatles.

The Fab Four, consisting of Sir Paul Mc’Cartney, John Lennon, Sir George Harrison and Ringo Starr, have held out on any of the big digital brands of today such as computer games or even Apple’s iTunes although that may have come down to a lawsuit of the use of name between the record company and the same company that make computers which has long since been settled.
