Austin Wintory composing Assassin's Creed Syndicate soundtrack
Grammy-nominated composer working on the next chapter of the action adventure franchise
Ubisoft has announced that Grammy-nominated composer Austin Wintory (Journey, The Banner Saga) has composed the score for Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.
Wintory sought not just to capture the drama and excitement of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, but to evoke the prowess and sarcasm of the game’s main characters, Jacob and Evie Frye. The waltzing music reflects this playful yet violent energy; it features a chamber ensemble of elite players performing with intensity, accompanied by incidental winds and trumpets and showcasing solo performances by acclaimed instrumentalists Sandy Cameron and Tina Guo.
Wintory was inspired by the more intimate music of the mid-19th Century, the period of time in which the game takes place, and intentionally chose not to reference the massive orchestral music of the era.
Assassin’s Creed Syndicate will be available worldwide for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on October 23, and will be available for Windows PC on November 19.
