Modern Warfare 2 Soundtrack Might Not be Released Due to “Increasingly Challenging” Working Dynamic

Call of Duty composer Sarah Schachner has taken to Twitter to address fans surrounding the release of the Modern Warfare 2 soundtrack.

Schachner says that she does not “see any path forward” due to the working dynamic with the audio director that has become “increasingly challenging”.

Schachner’s full statement reads:

“I am sad to say I can no longer continue to compose music for MWII / Warzone. Over the past couple of months the working dynamic with the audio director has become increasingly challenging and I don’t see any path forward. As of now, I am unsure of the status and release plan for the soundtrack as it’s been taken out of my hands.

While I don’t have any control over how the music is presented in-game, what will be released on the soundtrack is not my artistic intent in regards to mixing and mastering. Mike Dean was a part of the creative vision for the album as well as mixer Frank Wolf. We have soundtrack masters in hand from Mike which unfortunately you will never get to hear.

I would like to acknowledge the incredible hard work of the audio team as a whole, and I hope you still enjoy it because I put so much work and effort into it. The score features some wonderful performances by musicians Baseck, Brain Mantia, and M.B. Gordy. I’m truly appreciative of the outreach so far and I feel a responsibility to the fans to remain authentic in my approach with the game and its sound which I have been a part of creating for many years.

Thank you,

Sarah Schachner’s work includes composing the soundtracks for the likes of Call of Duty, Assassin’s Creed, Anthem, and more. In addition to video games, Schachner has also composed for movies including Hulu’s Prey and The Lazarus Effect.

Activision is yet to comment on the statement made by Schachner.
