I think we all know by now that the signature ‘ba-ba-ba-BA, ba-ba-ba-BA’ Halo theme will not be making a return. I’ve listened to the released soundtrack pieces and nothing so far sounds like it has potential to be a definitive ‘theme’. I was wondering (if anyone present has played the game yet, or knows others who have…?) if anyone thinks this could potentially be the new Reclaimer Trilogy theme.
I ask because, well, it’s goddamned awesome. I’d love to hear more of it, but it’s only presence thus far has been in Forward Unto Dawn, and then only really right at the end (which sort of makes me think it might be the new theme - like the whole series was building to that music).
the Halo theme is towards the end of “117.” But I think it’s pretty much accepted that “To Galaxy” (the Lasky song is a variation of it) is the new reclaimer trilogy theme. But I could be wrong.
I get that it’s a new trilogy, new composer and all, but I’m mad there isn’t the classic monk chant. That chant says Halo more than anything else, and moreover, it was in the original E3 trailer.

Totally agree, the original should have stayed, even as a re-mastered version of sorts at least.
I’m pretty sure the track “Awakening” from the OST is the new Halo theme
It would probably work pretty well with future altered versions. imagine a more electronic version, a slower version, a faster version, a more orchestral version, a heavier version… the theme would work well being reprised in different ways
