Larian has announced in a Kickstarter update that the studio has found a composer to create the score to their highly anticipated sequel, Divinity: Original Sin 2. Slavov had written the score to such games as Knights of Honor, Two Worlds II, Gothic 3, Crysis 2, Crysis 3, and Ryse: Son of Rome.
The composer of the previous Divinity games, Kirill Pokrovsky, had tragically passed away last year at the age of 53. "While Kirill will be a part of every game we make, the time has come to pass the mantle to another musical genius. Since our ambitions for the music in Divinity:Original Sin 2 are very high, it took a while but today we're happy to report that we found the perfect fit for the job," wrote the studio in the KIckstarter update.
Slavov won awards for his work on Two Worlds II, Crysis 2 and Crysis 3. Aside from his compositions, Larian Games was impressed with some of the more technical aspects of his work. "Apart from his credentials as a music director, Bobby’s work on adaptive music in video games was a thing that really caught our attention. He's developed novel techniques to ensure that music evolves in real time according to players’ actions and decisions in the game."
Larian introduced "Bobby" in a new developer diary, showing off the composer and his work.
