Award winning composer Tim Wynn returns for XCOM 2 score

Award-winning composer, Tim Wynn, who has previously composed music for hit TV show Supernatural and XCOM: Enemy Unknown has been confirmed to be returning to the sci-fi genre to score a new alien threat in XCOM 2, the sequel to the award-winning strategy game from Firaxis Games and 2K. The original soundtrack is available with the XCOM 2 Digital Deluxe Edition and will also be released via iTunes on February 5.

XCOM 2 transports players into the future, where humanity lost the war against the alien invaders and a new world order now exists on Earth. After years of lurking in the shadows, the remnants of the secret paramilitary organization known as XCOM must build a global resistance to eliminate the alien occupation and save the human race.


The score for XCOM 2 continues the legacy sound of the acclaimed reboot and expands the franchise’s sonic palette with emotional orchestral themes and synth-driven sci-fi ambience now defined by the epic fight to take back the planet. XCOM 2 marks Tim Wynn’s second outing in the XCOM universe having also written music for XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

Wynn’s other work includes the long-running hit TV series Supernatural, as well as video games in the Command & Conquer series, Total War series, Marvel’s The Punisher and The Darkness II, another 2K title that was based on the best-selling comics from Top Cow.

XCOM 2 will be available globally for PC by 2K and Firaxis Games on February 5, 2016, as well as Mac and Linux by Feral Interactive.
