“This year I’m thrilled composer [Lorne Balfe] (Mission Impossible: Fallout, COD: Modern Warfare 2, FIFA 19) will serve as composer and musical director for [The Game Awards] orchestra,” said Keighley in a tweet earlier this week.

Aside from the aforementioned games, Grammy Award-winner and Emmy and BAFTA-nominated composer Balfe has also worked on a number of other titles, including Assassin’s Creed: Revelations, Crysis 2, and Beyond: Two Souls.

After the announcement was made, Balfe took to Twitter and said: “Looking forward to performing at The Game Awards.”
