Trent Reznor has confirmed that he has written the theme track for "Call of Duty: Black Ops II," the latest iteration of the popular video game franchise.
In an interview with USA Today, Reznor said the track reflects the dark tenor of the game:
"There is a lot of reservation and angst and sense of loss and regret and anger bubbling under the surface. So it didn't make sense to have a gung ho patriotic feeling kind of theme song. It has to feel weighty."
Reznor, a longtime gamer, added that he is happy to be partnered with one of the industry's most "cutting-edge" productions:
"I have always looked to that franchise as the cutting edge of what seemingly unlimited budgets and full-on not cutting any corners can do in the current day and age."
"Call of Duty: Black Ops II" is due in November.
