DOOM Eternal Composer ‘Doubts’ He’ll Work With id Again, Hints At Issues With Soundtrack

Seems Mick Gordon is unhappy about something behind the scenes.

Posted By | On 21st, Apr. 2020

DOOM Eternal hit us last month, and what a hit it was. It seems Bethesda and id Software have a success on their hands by the look of things, and that rocks. What also rocks is the game’s soundtrack. Both Eternal and the 2016 DOOM were defined heavily by their soundtrack, headed by composer Mick Gordon. Unfortunately, it seems not all may be well with his relationship with the developer and its handling of said music.

Replying to a tweet criticizing the recent release of the game’s OST, Gordon responding timely by saying that many of the issues were from someone else mixing the music, and not him. While that in and of itself doesn’t mean a whole lot in isolation, Reddit user MedicalMilk posted a brief exchange with the composer in which he said he’d doubt he’d work with id Software again. It was also pointed out that Gordon made an uncharacteristic post on a YouTube video that covered one of the songs from Eternal‘s soundtrack, again saying the issues people had with the song were also someone else’s doing (you can see the comment at the link here).

While all of these comments came from Gordon’s verified accounts, it is worth nothing that nothing official has been said yet outside social media. But it seems as if there are some issue here with how the OST was handled. Undoubtedly, part of the appeal for the new titles is Gordon’s incredible score, so hopefully, everything can be patched up by the time a third entry in the DOOM franchise comes.

I commented about it yesterday. I turned I’d break the news here. This is a dark day for our beloved franchise from Doom
