Square Enix and Eidos-Montreal are teaming up with renowned artist Sascha Dikiciyan (aka Sonic Mayhem) alongside returning composer Michael McCann to score the music for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, the company revealed today.
Available this Fall, the soundtrack is being overseen by Executive Audio Director Steve Szczepkowski and represents a sort of evolution from the previous game, Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
“It was important for us to build upon the strong foundation of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, but also to let it stand on its own. Along the way, we realized this game was much vaster than anticipated and we made the choice to add another composer to the team. Sascha Dikiciyan’s music stood out,” said Steve Szczepkowski.
“After talking with Sascha, it became clear that we shared the same vision and passion for what musically drives Deus Ex. Sascha’s influences mirror ours in many ways, yet he also brings a whole other set of influences to the table. Sascha is completely immersed in the musical feeling of Deus Ex; he’s a huge fan of the franchise, and that comes through loud and clear in his compositions. We can’t wait for people to hear the work that he’s done and we are all thrilled he’s now part of the Deus Ex family!”
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is due out on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on August 23rd.
