According to a twit from the official Halo Waypoint twitter account, Sotaro Tojima formerly of Kojima Productions has moved to Microsoft’s Halo studio 343 Industries as an audio director. Tojima did a lot of work in the sound department at Kojima Productions for many of the Metal Gear Solid games, until he moved on to work on the soundtrack on MGS4. That’s some strong talent Microsoft picked up.

Looks like Halo’s power (AKA Money) captures developers of all kinds, I’m interested in seeing how the Halo soundtrack evolves with this new influence on board. If Halo 3: ODST has taught us anything, it’s that the Halo series soundtrack doesn’t always need to be in the style of space opera.
