Via an article posted earlier today on The Hollywood Reporter, we have learned who will be composing the music for Electronic Arts’ upcoming Star Wars Battlefront title.

Award-winning TV and video game composer Gordy Haab has signed on to score Star Wars: Battlefront, LucasArts’ hotly-anticipated new action video game.

Haab has composed music for Star Wars games before, recording more than two hours of original, John Williams-inspired music for Microsoft’s Kinect: Star Wars, including the title The Felucia Podraces, which won the best song, video game, honor at the 2012 Hollywood Music in Media awards.

More recently, Haab composed the score to the Activision/AMC action title The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct.

“As a lifelong fan, Star Wars — especially its great music — has shaped who I am as a composer,” Haab said. “Writing the music for this amazing game truly has been my dream come true. I’ve been like an excited kid since the moment I put the first note on the page.”
