It has been announced that famed composer, Marty O’Donnell, has had his contract with Bungie terminated by the board of Directors.
O’Donnell composed tracks for titles such as Myth and Oni before joining Bungie back in 2000. During his time at Bungie he composed the Halo franchise’s most memorable tracks, and also directed the voice actors and sound design for the Halo trilogy. Lately O’Donnell worked side by side with Sir Paul McCartney and Mike Salvatori on the soundtrack of Bungie’s upcoming shooter, Destiny, which now ended up to be the last Bungie project he worked on.
Earlier today Marty O’Donnell tweeted that he was fired by the board of directors of the studio without giving him a reason. Bungie confirmed this when they posted the news on their website, wishing him luck in his future endeavors.
