Beatles Music Game Confirmed

MTV, Harmonix and Apple Corp have confirmed that a Beatles music game is in the works, although it won’t be released under the Rock Band brand as initially thought. Speaking on a conference call today, Harmonix’s Alex Rigopulous said the new game, due for a worldwide release at the end of 2009, "is not just a Rock Band expansion pack" but that it will be a "full-blown custom game built from ground up." He then went on to explain that it will "Take players on an experimental journey of the band", taking in the music and image of the band from the first album Please Please Me right through to Abbey Road. 

Although exact details on the game were sketchy – the call was to announce the deal rather than to provide specific information on what the finished product will be like – Rigopulous explained that Harmonix had worked directly with existing members of The Beatles and that the music tracks will be produced by Giles Martin, producer of last year’s Love album and son of legenedary Beatles producer George Martin. He also hinted that while it isn’t a Rock Band game –it won’t be called Rock Band: The Beatles or something similar - it will play much like any other Harmonix title. 

During a questions and answers session following the call additional details such as the inclusion of new, custom hardware, any gameplay info, format details and the exact song list were all met with the reply "We’re not ready to talk about that yet", plus there was no comment on whether or not Beatles tracks will ever be available for Rock Band. 

So we know it’s coming, we just don’t know much else. We’ll bring you more when we get it.
