Destiny 2: Forsaken Brings Back Paul McCartney's Very Bad Song From the Original Destiny

Hope for the future.

Like anyone that enjoys music, I consider myself a fan of The Beatles. By that extension, Sir Paul McCartney too. It was a surprise way, way back in 2014 when McCartney made an interesting new song—a song for Bungie's Destiny. It plays over the "end" credits, and is pretty much the only thing I remember about the ending of the first Destiny.

Anyways, it's not a good song. It's a D-Tier McCartney track at best (a friend of mine tried to argue that it's C-Tier, which, uh, no! That honor goes to "Temporary Secretary," obviously). And apparently, Bungie hasn't forgotten about it either. In a lost sector off the Tangled Shore playable area in the new expansion Forsaken, you can sometimes hear "Hope for the Future" echoing through the chambers, peering in to see a Fallen seemingly acting as DJ to a crowd of monsters. It's a silly sight.

And it was baffling when I happened upon it last night. I captured a video, which you can see above, and you can pinpoint the precise moment that I got extremely confused. Later last night when my partner got home from work, I returned to show the return of Sir Paul McCartney to him, only to find different music bouncing off the walls of the lost sector. Seemingly, music rotates here. I'm not at the proper power level yet to take on its foes (it's recommended for power level 480, and I just got to 400), so I'm looking forward to going back in earnest. As for why the song's returning, my guess is Bungie has a sense of humor about it now. I mean, who thought it was a good idea in the first place to get Sir Paul McCartney to do a song for a video game?
