We're Not Going Anywhere


Halo: Reach Original Soundtrack


Martin O'Donnell, Michael Salvatori, and C. Paul Johnson






At Any Cost


We're Not Going Anywhere is the fifteenth track (Disc 2 Track 8) included in Halo: Reach Original Soundtrack, and plays during the Halo: Reach E3 2009 announcement trailer.


The track opens with muted percussion before high strings enter with an ambient and suspenseful melody, soon joined by low strings, then ends with cymbal clashes, echoing the opening of the Halo Theme.


The track plays in full during the Halo: Reach E3 2009 announcement trailer. The melody was adapted with additional choir accompaniment into Latchkey (from the earlier track ONI: Sword Base), which plays in the level ONI: Sword Base. A strings-only version was featured as City Under Siege (from the earlier track Exodus), which plays in the level Exodus.

Production notes[edit]

  • This is the second shortest track on the Halo: Reach soundtrack at only 1:14 long.
  • The title of the track is a direct quote from Carter-A259 in the E3 2009 trailer, "We've got Spartans on the ground sir. We're not going anywhere."
