While God of War Ragnarok is a hit and could even walk away with the title of game of the year, a shadow seems to taint the picture of a somewhat shameful drama.
This is the case of Jessica Mao who took the opportunity to share information about her work. The 24-year-old composer was indeed part of the in-house music production team at Sony Santa Monica, the wildly popular studio that spawned God of War Ragnarok .
In her tweet she shares the scenes in which we can hear her work, how it took place in particular on the striking scenes of the hunt with Freya or the imposing fight against Thor. Responsible for the musical arrangement of these scenes, her work therefore contributed greatly to the work, and yet, in a following tweet, she explains that she was never mentioned in the credits of the game.
An artist forgotten in the credits
A controversial response from the studio of God of War Ragnarok
As the musician explains, she reported the problem to the studio, who replied that adding her name was not possible later, and that obviously, in any case, she had not fulfilled the criteria . to be quoted. Working on important scenes from a bestseller would therefore apparently not be enough to have a line among the hundreds of names already present in the credits, a rather shameful situation, when it would seem normal for anyone who contributed to be cited.
It is by the dozen that messages of support have reached the artist for this more than shameful situation, messages even coming from still active members of the studio while no official communication has yet been made on this subject. .
