AC4 has been in development since 2011. I would be surprised if they hadn't already finished some music for it.

his last recordings for ac3 were in august 2012 so it doesn't matter I think.

I have a feeling jesper kyd is doing it, since he didn't work in ac3 and only did parts of acr he could have been doing ac4 while lorne balfe was doing ac3.

If Lorne did AC III he would`v had to have started on mid 2011 in the latest, his last recordings finished on August 2012 too. BF has been in development since early 2011, so I would assume soundtrack composition started somewhere in mid 2012...maybe Lorne was doing AC III and BF simultaneously ?? not to mention the Tyranny as well..hmm...this opens the door a bit for the return of Jesper

The reason the AC3 developers changed Kyd to Balfe in AC3 was because the music was one of the many aspects they wanted to be fresh and different. It would be kind of strange for them to go back to the old composer now. As much as many fans (including me) would like Jesper to return, bringing him back so soon after claiming the reason for the composer change was because they wanted something fresh would be a bit strange.

They wanted something fresh with Den defense too...just sayin..

and I`m not jumping up saying that it`s guaranteed that he`s coming back..i`m just making some deductions...

Sounds like it's pretty much confirmed then. Unless he was talking about ToKW.

or... he is referring to a completely separate ac project.... i doubt it would be the ac3 team since they are probably still collecting data and researching for the next ac, but who knows, I personally think it should be jesper since black flags is kind of like a hybrid game taking the best aspects of all the previous ac games in one package, it would increase nostalgia levels is jesper did the score this time.

I badly want it to be Jesper to! But, sadly, I don't think they'll ever bring him back. :(

Kyd isn't coming back. Please get this idea out of your head and move on. You're just annoying everyone else and holding back your enjoyment of a fantastic score. If he does come back, then cool, but chances are he never will.

But why Jesper stopped working on the AC franchise?

Edit:
Lorne Balfe isn't working on AC4

That's so ****ty... First Jesper Kyd leaves the AC Franchise and now Lorne Balfe ... Sorry ubi but if you hire a new composer I maybe won't play the game... Even if it looks so good but the Soundtrack in AC is an important thing...

Sorry but who could beat them? Only Blafe and Kyd know the atmosphere. I don't want to hear a action soundtrack from Hans Zimmer I just want a soundtrack that fits perfectly in the game and no one will beat Balfe or Kyd , I'm sure

We just can hope that Kyd will return to AC... He has no projects in the fall

(Sry for my bad english ^^)

If it's someone new i'm secretly hoping for Inon Zur now actually.
I believe he's worked with Ubisoft before as well.
