I think the title says it all. It turns out that film and television composer Bear McCreary will be scoring Capcom’s Dark Void, which I’ve been watching pretty closely. Now, most of you are probably saying to yourselves, “Yeah, so what?” Well, I was surprised to hear about this bit of news because I actually met Bear a couple years ago and asked him why he wasn’t scoring games, and now here he is.

It was at the Composer Expo in Los Angeles in 2007, and Bear was sitting on a panel with Mark Mothersbaugh and other composers, and a question came to the panel asking how they spent their free time. Bear mentioned that he was really into videogames, so naturally I stood up and asked if he’d consider scoring games in the future.  His reply?  “If they can pay me enough, I’ll work on anything.” Not really the answer I wanted, and not the most open-minded attitude, but interesting now that he’s now working on Dark Void.  He’s apparently been “waiting for the right one,” so I guess Capcom had just what he wa$ looking for.

Read the official press release from Capcom after the jump.

CAPCOM SIGNS BATTLESTAR GALACTICA COMPOSER TO CREATE THE SCORE FOR DARK VOID

Bear McCreary, known for his composition for Battlestar Galactica and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, creates soundtrack for Capcom’s upcoming action-shooter

April 2, 2009—Capcom announced today that composer Bear McCreary, known best for his work on popular sci-fi TV series Battlestar Galactica, has signed on to score Capcom’s highly-anticipated third-person action game, Dark Void. He has gained international renown over the last few years for his amazing work on Battlestar, and Dark Void marks the first time McCreary will be creating the score for a video game.

“When I got the call from Capcom to work on the music for Dark Void, I jumped at the chance to do it, considering my love for Capcom games.” said McCreary. “I have been looking for the opportunity to compose a game score for a long time, but I’ve been waiting for the right one. Dark Void’s epic story and unique gameplay drew me in immediately and I have had a lot of fun working on the project.”

Dark Void, Capcom’s upcoming third person action-shooter, is set to launch on Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3 and Windows PCs this year. Developed by Airtight Studios and Capcom, Dark Void combines run-and-gun combat with the thrill of soaring jetpack action in the skies.
