Prey director Dan Trachtenberg has revealed that one of the reasons the movie's composer, Sarah Schachner, was hired was due to her previous work on Assassin's Creed Valhalla.
Trachenberg reveals this in a tweet on his personal Twitter account (thanks Kotaku), explaining that he first heard Schachner's music in Assassin's Creed Valhalla whilst prepping for the movie in Calgary. Schachner has composed for a handful of large-scale releases like Assassin's Creed Unity, Origins, and Valhalla, as well as titles such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Infinite Warfare, and Anthem.
"When we were prepping the movie in Calgary I was playing AC Valhalla and was like "well this music is insanely beautiful. Who did this?" explains Trahctenberg. "The answer is Sarah Schachner. You will be listening to her lots in the future I promise…"
Schachner was undoubtedly picked as the composer for Prey for more reasons other than her work on Assassin's Creed Valhalla as she does has a pretty impressive CV across film and television as well. Her latest work on Prey is actually available pretty soon as the movie will be streaming on Disney Plus on August 5. If you watch the movie and really like Schachner's music, the movie's soundtrack will also be available to download on the same day.
