As of 10 a.m. this morning, MTV Networks, Apple Corps Ltd. and Harmonix (the game developer behind Rock Band) announced they will be working on an interactive music video game featuring The Beatles, but will not be another Rock Band.
Details were few and far between, but what we do know is that it'll take the gamer on an interactive journey through the band's musical career. Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison will participate in the creative process and formation of the game. They hope to release it in late '09, and the game remains nameless as of right now. The companies also didn't reveal if the game would be compatible with the current Rock Band set-up (guitar, mic and drum kit).
