Stalk Like An Egyptian: Sarah Schachner Sojourns to Ancient Egypt For 'Assassin's Creed Origins' Score Exclusive
publish date: 2017-10-19
Four years in the making, Assassin’s Creed Origins takes gamers back to ancient Egypt with composer Sarah Schachner setting the tone. The Ptolemaic-era setting was at the request of fans polled in 2011 as to where they’d like to see the time-traveling series land. Schachner’s return to the Ubisoft franchise for this third installment seems inspired by popular demand, too, after well-received turns on 2014’s Assassin’s Creed Unity and 2013’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
The stakes couldn’t be higher. Assassin’s Creed is Ubisoft’s top franchise, surpassing 100 million units sold as of 2016, according to the company. This tenth title in the series follows a two-year hiatus that has created great expectations from a base built around an annual release schedule.
