Marty O’Donnell fired from Bungie???


I just heard this, this morning when I got on the net. Marty O’Donnell, yes THAT Marty, was fired from Bungie! I’m just absolutely STUNNED by this. As most of you know he composed the music for all of the Halo games before Halo 4, except Halo Wars.

Here’s Marty’s tweet about it:

Bungie’s Deej had this to say on Bungie’s official site:Bungie fires Marty-Official

343 better hire him. It would be a monumental mistake for them not to. I mean really, who wouldn’t want to see him back holding the reigns of the Halo music again?

Even if Marty doesn’t come back to Halo, we Halo fans need to support him. Without him, Halo would not have had the epic musical score that it had (pre-Halo 4).

If you’ve got a twitter account, use the hashtag #Standbymarty Let’s get that trending folks!!!

More on this as I can find out. Stay Tuned!

  1. As much as I would love Marty to come back to compose for Halo, I love Neil Davidge composing the Halo music as well, either one of them composing for the next Halo game (Major title) would make my day

  2. Apparently, a lot of people did not feel Neil’s Halo 4 soundtrack was up to snuff. I thought it was very good. There were no tracks on either volume that I disliked and several that I loved (“Green and Blue” and “Majestic”).

    Everyone is saying 343 will be missing out if they don’t hire Marty. But no one is asking if Marty even wants to go back to Halo. He may want to do something else. He might be saying “NO! No more monks!”. 🙂 Whatever he ends up doing though, I bet I will be listening.

    • I think Neil did a good job, yes. And yes, Marty might not want to come back to Halo. However, if the stars align just right…maybe he would come back to Halo for the right salary. I think we as fans and Halo as a franchise would benefit more with him at the musical helm again. No matter where he goes, we all know the music will be great. And you bet I’ll be listening too.
