Assassin?s Creed Syndicate will bring a new composer to the long-running series, as Ubisoft has announced that the Grammy-nominated Austin Wintory will provide the game’s score.
In an interview with Ubisoft posted Thursday, Wintory?also known for composing the music in Journey?goes over developing the main theme of Syndicate and creating music for a game set in London.
?The score could be attributed to two primary sources of inspiration: the personalities of Jacob and Evie, and the fascinating, contradictory world of Victorian London,? Wintory explains.
?I rather obsessively channeled different styles of dance, with the waltz in particular, throughout the score to create that sense of ease?that Jacob and Evie are somehow, in their minds, above anyone who would dare cross them,? he added.
The addition of Wintory marks the continued departure from the franchises? most prolific composers, Lorne Balfe and Jesper Kyd, who last contributed to Assassin’s Creed III and Revelations, respectively.
