Halo Anniversary Goes All Out With Soundtrack

One of the most iconic things about the Halo Franchise would most definitely be its unforgettable and unmistakable soundtrack. From the E minor piano to the ominous chanting, the music of Halo is easily one of the most popular and most distinguishable in the video game world. With Marty O’Donnell and Michael Salvatori composing every track just for Halo and Halo alone, it’s no surprise how well the music fits with every moment in all the games.

Halo Anniversary is set to release November 15 of this year, the game is developed by 343 industries, not Bungie. Which means no Marty O’Donnell, but don’t lose faith yet. According to Halo.Xbox.com, 343 Industries (which is mostly former Bungie employees) has been at the Skywalker ranch working with Skywalker sound, a division of Lucas Digital motion picture group to re-master and re-orchestrate the original Halo: Combat Evolved soundtrack.

At first I was skeptical of this 343 Industries, but with the news of Skywalker sound, and the reassuring fact that some of the 343 team worked on the original titles, I’m expecting a fresh yet familiar sound that will make for a great remake of a game that set the stage for First Person Shooters.
