Marty O’Donnell, the well-known music composer for the sci-fi shooter series Halo, has settled a lawsuit against Bungie chief executive Harold Ryan.
King County Superior Court judge Jeffrey Ramsdell in Seattle has approved a deal in which Ryan will pay O’Donnell more than $95,000 to settle legal claims related to a lawsuit that O’Donnell filed in May. The lawsuit offered a rare glimpse on what was happening inside Bungie, the original Halo developers who is now at work on the big online shooter Destiny.
Good. I hope other employees they screwed get a settlement, also. Marty is a great guy and a hell of a composer. He will land on his feet and end up in a better situation, making more money, soon. Somewhere where he can actually be creative and not be pressured into recreating the original Halo soundtrack over and over again.
Game on, Marty.
I remember reading updates from Marty on the old Bungie weekly updates. I love Bungie, but I'm happy that one of their biggest stars isn't getting screwed over.
I'm hoping he gets hired by 343...I know they've got a new Composer but Marty would be a great way to keep the Halo music alive.
Surprisingly Halo 4 had solid music even without him, just was missing something.
great news..... marty deserve it. epic music
