I have way too much love for Tron. I think it’s one of the most visually important franchises ever made, a neon wonderland in its 2.0 infancy that is populated by digital citizens who fling their entire egos around quite literally thanks to those fancy discs on their backs. And it looks like the franchise is ripe for a new game.
That’s according to Scarface composer Giorgio Moroder, who told Clash Magazine via GameInfomer that he would be working on a new game in that universe soon. “I’m going to meet Skrillex next week when I’m back. I’m doing the music for a game for Disney’s Tron,” Moroder said.
We have about five themes, electronic stuff and let’s see if he’s interested in remixing or re-working one of the songs.
That’s a big step forward for Disney and their video game branch. The last couple of years saw them can the majority of their game development work, leaving Disney Infinity as their sole franchise while EA handled Star Wars duties. In fact, the last Tron game ever made was Tron: Evolution, a tie-in to the Tron: Legacy movie that was horribly, horribly not worth your time. Beyond that, the franchise has been dead in the digital sphere, outside of an appearance in Disney Infinity.
But I’d kill for a new Tron game with some proper talent behind it. Moroder is an industry veteran, having worked on various movies and the GTA games, so talent like that does not come cheap. And if I could get a proper Tron game that bridges the gap between the magnificent and underrated Tron: Uprising animated series and the sequel film Tron: Legacy, I’d die happy.
Chances are, that won’t happen, as this will most likely be a tie-in game for the rumoured third Tron movie that Disney has been touching on for years now.
