As a gamer myself I will never forget the first time I played Halo on the original Xbox. Everything was perfect. The graphics, gameplay, sound effects and especially the music. The iconic theme tume to the game series has found it’s place in gaming history and is instantly recognisable to any gamer.
Now it seems the composer has been fired from Halo creators, Bungie.
The composer of the original Halo soundtracks says he has been fired from his job at the video games’ creator.
Marty O’Donnell revealed the news in a tweet: “I’m saddened to say that Bungie’s board of directors terminated me without cause on April 11, 2014.”
Bungie has confirmed the move but suggested they remained “friends”.
Mr O’Donnell had been working on music for the firm’s forthcoming title Destiny in collaboration with Sir Paul McCartney.
The news prompted a backlash from visitors to Bungie’s site.
“Bungie just lost half of its magic,” wrote one, nicknamed Apotheosis.
“You just fired one of your best assets. What in the world is wrong with you?” asked Avenger I32.
Halo is all set to get the Spielberg treatment as it was annouced the franchise is to be made into a TV series exclusive to the Xbox One with Spielberg producing.
