All the composers and musicians who worked on Assassin’s Creed took up the challenge of enchanting players of action and adventure games while evoking the most important periods of human history. Jesper Kyd – the architect of the series’ musical ambiance – unwittingly created an iconic signature sound with Assassin’s Creed II’s “Ezio’s Family,” a moving track about loss and struggle in Renaissance Florence.

IV Black Flag. Austin Wintory leaned into cheeky 19th-century waltzes as the Frye twins danced like vicious cats around their prey in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. Sarah Schachner juxtaposed stunning scenes from ancient Egypt with elements of haunting electronic music in the score for Assassin’s Creed Origins.
