Destiny 2’s upcoming expansion, The Final Form, could see Paul McCartney’s original soundtrack return to the game, and players are very excited about that possibility.
According to Reddit user AtlyxMusic, Bungie is said to be recording live orchestral parts for The Final Shape soundtrack in Nashville, Tennessee. Destiny 2 orchestrator Ella Rae Feingold also shared a sheet music photo in his account of Instagram, hiding the names of those who participated in the composition, but leaving “P. McCartney” visible.

AtlyxMusic argued that the name “O’Donnell” is almost recognizable under Feingold’s attempt to block it, which means that Marty O’Donnell may also be collaborating on The Final Shape soundtrack. O’Donnell is known for his work on Halo and is credited as co-composer of the Destiny Original Soundtrack with McCartney.
Fans are excited that the iconic singer-songwriter and musician can return to the expansion. In addition to the song ‘Hope for the Future,’ McCartney wrote several of the Destiny theme songs that have become treasures in the community over the years.
“He’s done every subgenre you can imagine. He’s checking every box in the world, but he’s done nothing. [para] games, and that’s an incredible opportunity,” Bungie’s Lev Chapelsky said in an interview in 2022.
The involvement of O’Donnell and McCartney would be a fitting way to wrap up the Light and Dark saga, from the first game’s campaign, The Dark Below, House of Wolves, The Taken King to Rise of Iron. Of course, this is all speculation at the moment, as Final Shape won’t be out until February 2024.
