Halo, the soundtrack would be costing Microsoft a lawsuit

Author and references

Halo, the very successful series of shooter titles that made the fortune of Microsoft, could force the Redmond giant to a court case. Let's go in order: the former composers Marty O'Donnell and Mike Salvatori they would be dealing with the company owned by Bill Gates due to royaltes on the never paid soundtracks.

The dispute between the former composers of Halo and Microsoft has been going on since July 2020, when O'Donnel and Salvatori's attorneys filed the indictment in Washington State Court. The mediation will take place by next weekend. But that is not all.

The two reportedly contacted Microsoft well before suing them, with the hope, which turned out to be vain, of averting legal action. These contacts would go on for ten years, without success. A problem for Microsoft, but also for Paramount.

Yes, because this year a homonymous TV series dedicated to the famous franchise will be released and Paramount will distribute it. And, according to reports from Marty O'Donnell, if the deal with Microsoft does not arrive by the end of next week, the two could proceed with the request to block the broadcast of the TV series.

A hard blow for the two giants who were preparing the launch of the product dedicated to Halo with a lot of trailers during the interval of the Super Bowl, the sporting event of the year in the United States: this is the final of the NFL championship (National Football League) and which this year will see the Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams face off.

And if the mediation that will take place, as mentioned, by the end of next week should fail, only one way will open up for the former composers of Halo and Microsoft, that of court case. Eventualities that the parties involved would like to avoid.

In short, we'll see how it turns out. In the meantime, we remind you that at the end of December Halo Infinite, the latest work from 343 Industries, arrived among us.
