One of The Beatles’ last surviving members Paul McCartney is returning to Bungie’s MMOFPS franchise Destiny for a new song. Presumably for the upcoming expansion Destiny 2: The Final Shape, McCartney’s new song is a terrifying prospect.
Revealed by Destiny 2 orchestrator Ella Feingold on Instagram, McCartney’s talents are returning to the game. Few details were shared from Feingold, but many believe the composer is coming back for a brand-new composition.
In the Instagram post, Feingold shared sheet music that included McCartney’s name. The post also included a caption saying: “Yeah, that P. McCartney. That’s all I can say for now.”
McCartney was first involved in Destiny way back during promotion of the original game. Back in 2014, almost a decade ago now, the musician released an original tie-in song titled Hope, later retitled Hope for the Future.
The song was initially released to mixed response, although Destiny fans have come around to the music. However, for those who are not a fan of McCartney’s solo music, the thought of the musician returning to the franchise fills them with dread. (Yes, I am filled with dread.)
Hopefully, this time around, McCartney’s new composition will at least receive a better music video. The original song’s video was a hilariously low-quality release that superimposed a holographic version of the musician into footage of the original Destiny game. It is still hilarious to this day.
Destiny 2: The Final Shape is the next expansion coming to the popular FPS game. Following on from the controversial Lightfall campaign, The Final Shape sees the return of Nathan Fillion’s Cayde-6.
The Final Shape may also be the last time we see Commander Zavala, played by the late Lance Reddick. While the actor died after finishing the Lightfall expansion, some voice lines may be included in the new campaign.
The upcoming Destiny 2 DLC launches on Xbox, PlayStation and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store in 2024.
