The man behind the award-winning soundtrack, Joris De Man, has been confirmed for the sequel today and is reportedly "delighted" at the opportunity to work with Guerrilla again.
Winning the Ivor this year gave me such a boost because receiving was not just recognition for my work on the score, but being awarded it in its first year meant being part of a growing appreciation of game music in general, Joris said.
The achievement spurred me on and has given me a new energy that I hope will be heard in the music Im now writing for Killzone 3. I was thrilled to be invited again to work alongside the team at Guerrilla; they continue to push the limits of design and technology and Im really proud to be a part of their next opus.
Game director Mathijs De Jonge chipped in on De Man's credentials: Joris is the kind of composer that keeps developing his skills and throughout the years he always manages to amaze us with new sounds, themes and direction in his music and for Killzone 3 hes doing exactly that again.
We're excited to hear the direction Killzone 3's music takes. With the narrative in a much more desperate place for the ISA, we're expecting a more tense score this time around. Killzone 2's music was often very forthright, representing the balance of the war against the Helghast. But this time around, the war's been lost.
