Wilbert Roget, II - Call of Duty: World War II

Wilbert Roget, II is an award-winning composer in the video game industry. He joined LucasArts as a staff composer in 2008, where he scored several games in the Star Wars universe, including Star Wars: The Old Republic and Star Wars: First Assault. Later as a freelance composer, he scored video games such as: Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire, Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris, Dead Island 2, Anew: The Distant Light and other indie and AAA titles.

Inspired at an early age by classic Japanese game soundtracks, Roget specializes in writing music that employs memorable themes, developed throughout the score in a traditional fashion.  Wilbert Roget II’s most recent video game score is for the famous CALL OF DUTY franchise.

Call of Duty® is makes a dramatic return to the greatest military conflict in history and where the franchise first began, World War II.  CALL OF DUTY: WORLD WAR II takes the franchise back to its roots in a bold cinematic experience that captures the unforgettable heroism of the soldiers who fought together in a war that changed the world forever. Activision's gripping new title is an honest portrayal of World War II from the perspective of the famed 1st Infantry Division, with an ensemble cast of global and diverse characters. Through stunning visuals and intense audio, players storm the beaches of Normandy on D-Day, march across France to liberate Paris and ultimately push forward into Germany in some of the most monumental battles of all-time.

In this episode, Wilbert Roget II discusses coming on to score the next entry into the popular video game franchise originally scored by composer Michael Giacchino back in 2003. Giacchino's Call of Duty scores greatly influenced Roget's career choice and were scores he once studied in college. You will hear Wilbert Roget talk through four tracks "Marigny, Paris, Burga and A Brotherhood of Heroes" having selected each track as they best exemplify his CALL OF DUTY: WORLD WAR II score, the game’s musical direction and collaborative process employed to make the score a reality.
