New Tron Game Reportedly Coming, Soundtrack Possibly by Skrillex
If you can believe it, Disney might be working on an all-new Tron video game with a soundtrack featuring Skrillex. Yeah, uh, what?
Game Informer reports that in a recent interview with Clash Music, the composer for the Scarface soundtrack, Giorgio Moroder, announced that there will be a new Tron video game for which he and Skrillex will be composing the soundtrack. There are no other details about the game at this point, but the news is a bit surprising considering Disney has barely hinted at any new Tron updates since Tron: Legacy's release.
"I'm going to meet Skrillex next week when I'm back," Moroder said. "I'm doing the music for a game for Disney's Tron. We have about five themes, electronic stuff and let's see if [Skrillex is] interested in remixing or re-working one of the songs.”
The last time we saw a Tron video game was in 2010 with Tron: Evolution. The storyline sets up the game as a precursor to the movie Tron: Legacy and a sequel to the graphic novel Tron: Betrayal. Previously, the first-person shooter Tron 2.0 was the best modern gamers could have hoped for, but perhaps this supposed new entry will revive the franchise.
With two great composers set to create the soundtrack, it's entirely possible the gameplay won't live up to the score, particularly if this next Tron game is anything like its predecessor. Moroder alone has a pretty vast career of composing music for films including Scarface, Top Gun, Inglourious Basterds and video games such as Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City. Skrillex's name precedes him, as well as being known as a DJ, singer, songwriter and guitarist.
For now we'll just have to wait to see what this game has in store for us besides its impressive composer lineup. If it's actually happening. Now, can we get the third Tron movie off the ground, please?
