SCEE’s announced Joris De Man will be scoring the soundtrack to Killzone 3.
De Man, who had composed the soundtrack for its prequel and had even won an Iver Novello for his work earlier this year, said he “was thrilled to be invited again” to Guerrilla.
“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,” he said.
“The achievement spurred me on and has given me a new energy that I hope will be heard in the music I’m 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 I’m really proud to be a part of their next opus.”
Game director Mathijs De Jonge added: “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 he’s doing exactly that again.”
Killzone 3 launches next February for PS3. Get our interview with Guerrilla on its multiplayer from gamescom last week here.
