I don't know if this has been posted already, but Marty working on Halo again?

I would guess it's just a mistake though.

What about that text indicates that Marty is working on Halo 5?

Edit: Oh, I misunderstood completely. Now I see. I forgot that Marty left Bungie, not 343i, so I thought the framing of the story was that he was rehired and I was suggesting maybe the audio he played was from before he left--but he was never at 343i to begin with, so the existence of any music of his for Halo 5 is the news. I get it now.

Well it makes a lot of sense and that's very smart of Microsoft if true.

What about that text indicates that Marty is working on Halo 5?

" - - as a pretty cool bonus we got to hear some samples of the music he (Marty O'Donnel) composed for Halo 5!"

Probably just ruined an E3 surprise. Could see Phil bringing Marty out on stage while one of his new compositions was playing.

Halo 5 could be an absolute tour de force if they nail the gameplay. If this turns out to be true and he wasn't just giving them some direction, it could be a great return to form.

Well let's say it like this, it would have been pretty dumb to not snap him up.

In house composers are getting more and more rare. He could be working on Halo 5 without being tied to 343i.

He did this exact presentation a couple months back at Bungie. I attended it. Same slides, same topic. The samples were from Destiny. Close the thread.

If that wasn't a real mistake, looks like it was something to surprise Halo fans at E3 with. Even though I really dug Davidge's stuff, I hope O'Donnell he does do some cool new stuff as the new flavor of halo could use strong themes that build on the classic ones.
