The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s soundtrack is being co-composed by audio lead Gene Rozenberg, who previously served a similar role on Project Copernicus, the 38 Studios MMO. In a video interview on GameInformer, Rozenberg describes the lessons he learned from the project – making sure the music offers enough variety; ensuring different pieces are in tone with each other; keeping music ambient where it needs to be; and making combat music reactive and adapative.
