Killzone 2 Wins Ivor Novello Award

Killzone 2 has the first ever video game to be a recipient of a prestigious Ivor Novello award.

The game was nominated for ‘Best Original Video Game Score’ alongside Empire: Total War and and Savage Moon: Waldgeist. The score was written by Joris de Man who also wrote the music for the first Killzone title.

“The Ivors has always sought to reflect the ever-changing world of songwriting and composing,” said Mark Fishlock, director of the Ivors Committee. “The video games market has matured beyond recognition and big budget orchestral scores are regularly being commissioned.”
