Square-Enix and Eidos Montreal has announced that the award-winning artist Sascha Dikiciyan (also known as Sonic Mayhem) will be joining returning composer Michael McCann to produce one hell of a soundtrack.
“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!”
The music in Mankind Divided is meant to serve as an evolved version of the score created for Deus Ex: Human Revolution with close supervision from Steve Szczepkowski, the Executive Audio Director.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is due to launch August 23rd for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 with the soundtrack being released later in the fall.
You can hear examples of Sascha Dikiciyan work in the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided 101 Trailer and the Adam Jensen 2.0 trailer which you can view below.
