Drive composer says he's scoring Far Cry 4

Far Cry 4 is coming and the composer of Drive is scoring its soundtrack, according to aLost in the Multiplex interview with said composer. Cliff Martinez's comments to the film enthusiast site have since been removed from the original article, but Joystiq has preserved an image of the original version.

Martinez said he's "working on a video game called Far Cry 4" when asked about upcoming scoring work. Ubisoft has not officially announced the title yet, but its senior VP of marketing and sales said in July that "we're clearly going to make another one."

If you're not familiar with Drive but have played Hotline Miami, know that the latter's droning synth beats and shocking violence were heavily inspired by the former.

Assuming Martinez plans to bring a similar sound to the next Far Cry, it could be meant to build on Far Cry 3's self-aware preoccupation with lurid ultraviolence. We've reached out to Ubisoft for comment on Martinez's interview and will update this article with any response.
