Here come the Beatles, and are they coming to Rock Band? Gamasutra received an invite to a major presscon tomorrow with Harmonix owners MTV and Beatles rights holder Apple Corps. Industry speculation has it that they’ll be announcing a partnership for Rock Band.
Here come the Beatles. Harmonix owner, MTV and Beatles’ rights holder, Apple Corps, are holding a major presscon tomorrow to announce “an exclusive agreement to develop a global music project.” Industry speculation has it that music from the most successful band of all time (the Beatles, in case you’re asking who) will be in Rock Band.
A June Financial times article once reported that Apple Corps and EMI were in discussions with Activision and MTV. It appears that Apple Corps is getting in on the music game action. With all the songs that have come to Rock Band, the Beatles would definitely make a great addition.
Tomorrow’s presscon will be held at 10:00 AM ET on Thursday, the 30th of October, and will be presented by Apple Corps CEO Jeff Jones, MTV Networks Chairman and CEO Judy McGrath, and MTV Networks Music president Van Toffler.
No further info than that, but check back and we’ll have updates on what’ll be in that presscon.
