“Microsoft and O’Donnell/Salvatori, Inc., are pleased to have amicably resolved their differences,” he tweeted.
The composers said they licensed the Halo music to original Halo developer Bungie, which went on to be acquired by Microsoft ahead of the launch of the franchise in 2001.
Microsoft was reportedly arguing that the Halo music was created under a work-for-hire agreement rather than a licensing one and that it therefore qualified as the author of the work.
Prior to a settlement being reached, the composers’ legal team was instructed to explore whether a preliminary injunction could be granted to block the release of Paramount’s Halo TV show, which debuted in late March.
And support studio Certain Affinity announced last week that it has taken on additional Halo Infinite development duties.
“We’ve been part of the Halo franchise for more than 15 years and we’re honored to say we are deepening our relationship with 343 and have been entrusted with further evolving Halo Infinite in some new and exciting ways,” it said.
