It has been announced that Mass Effect composer Jack Wall will not be completing the trilogy and that a replacement for ME3 has already been found. Taking the helm for the final part is Clint Mansell. I’ll be honest I didn’t but he does have a good track record according to IMDB .
I’m torn with this news, I love every aspect of the Mass Effect franchise including the soundtrack. Part of me is concerned that Mansell will either be forced to or will create an entirely new sound for the universe rather than build on what Wall has already created(I had to restrain myself from making a pun about building on Walls) On the other-hand, getting such a high profile composer shows that that Bioware are taking Mass Effect seriously and haven’t just hired an unknown composer who was cheap.
On a positive note, it seems to be an amicable split between Wall and Bioware which is good as I would hate to see ME3 tarnished with negativity between the two. I have faith in Bioware so I will reserve my final judgement until I have seen(and heard) more.
So! What would ME3 sound like if Sam Hulick worked on it? Well, here's a piece he made...
