Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor, coming fresh from his Oscar-winning soundtrack for movie The Social Network, has decided to get downright antisocial with the future war chaos of Black Ops II. Reznor has confirmed that he will compose the main theme for the forthcoming shooter whilst main soundtrack duties go to Jake Hall.
A big fan of of the COD series, Reznor stated in an interview with USA Today;
“I have always looked to that franchise as the cutting edge of what seemingly unlimited budgets and full-on not cutting any corners can do in the current day and age.”
A notorious perfectionist and musical genius, it seems likely that we’ll be treated to a world class tune from Reznor, which could hopefully open the doors for even more big names in music getting involved in videogames.
Expect something throbbing, industrial and haunting to herald in the release of Black Ops II on 13 November 2012.
