Composer Jeremy Soule
won't be going back to Tyria, as he reminded fans today that he has signed a contract to exclusively create MMO music for EverQuest Next
and EverQuest Next Landmark
On his Facebook page
, Soule responded to a fan's query about his future projects: "No, I won't be returning to Guild Wars
has an exclusive with me for the future projects that involve MMOs. [Guild Wars
] was a good experience over many years. As with all good things, it had to come to an end."
Soule was the main composer for Guild Wars
and Guild Wars 2
. He has also contributed to The Elder Scrolls Online
main theme but will not be doing any other music for that title.
[Thanks to Bogotter
for the tip!]
[Update 3/12/2014: Soule's agent has contacted us to clarify that his exclusivity to the EverQuest
games is lime-limited and is unrelated to his abbreviated work on ESO
. We may yet see him return to the Elder Scrolls franchise in the future!]
