It was a long road for Marty O’Donnel and Halo, producing some of the most iconic music in video games. With Bungie gone from the picture Marty is gone as well. Neil Davidge, is the new producer and from what we’ve heard so far from the sample below, Halo fans have nothing to worry about. Having worked on recent movies such as Clash of the Titans and Unleashed, he has the tools to deliver a epic score for an epic game.
“As a passionate ‘Halo’ fan, I’m incredibly honored and thrilled to have the opportunity to compose the score for ‘Halo 4,’” said Davidge. “Music has always been at the heart of what makes ‘Halo’ so captivating and iconic. With ‘Halo 4,’ we want to build upon the franchise’s amazing legacy and create a score that captures the awe and wonder of the ‘Halo’ universe, and reinforces the deeper and more emotionally impactful journey Master Chief will embark on.”
Sotaro Tojima, audio director of Halo 4 had this to add about Neil.
“Neil has a deep love and appreciation for the ‘Halo’ universe, and the music he’s composed perfectly captures the heroic spirit and emotional power of Master Chief’s story.” “Neil is a remarkably talented composer who has a unique vision for the future of ‘Halo’ music, and I’m confident his work will spark the passion and excitement of a whole new generation of fans.”
