“I truly enjoyed creating a unique and signature early ‘80s post-punk aesthetic for the latest entry in this iconic series, using sound sources, synths, samplers and effects only available in the early ‘80s. Needless to say, I had an absolute blast. Another bonus was having the opportunity to do a remake of the Joy Division song “A Means to an End” (featured in the ending credits) performed by the Swedish hard rock group The Guilt. They were amazing and it was an honor to produce them.”

ASCAP winning and MTV VMA nominated composer Tom Salta is one of the most versatile and prolific music artists/producers working in film, television, advertising and video games. Renowned for crafting emotionally engaging soundtracks for multimedia, Salta has received widespread industry acclaim for his world-class produced hybrid scores featured in film, television and video games such as Machine Games’ WOLFENSTEIN : Youngblood & Cyberpilot, Microsoft’s iconic HALO series (G.A.N.G. Best Original Soundtrack Award), Ubisoft’s PRINCE OF PERSIA: The Forgotten Sands and RED STEEL (IGN Award for Best Original Score), Tom Clancy’s GHOST RECON and H.A.W.X  series, as well as the epic theme music for the record-breaking online multiplayer game PLAYERUNKNOWN’s BATTLEGROUNDS, which has sold in excess of 50 million units with over 400 million players.
