Following his music for Assassin's Creed, Assassin's Creed II and Assassin's Creed Brotherhood, Kyd has written and produced the original score for this fourth installment in Ubisoft's video game franchise. To reflect the story's multicultural setting of 16th Century Constantinople, Jesper Kyd has crafted a hybrid music score drawing on Greek, Renaissance and Middle-Eastern instrumentation, while combining his melodic writing and acoustic/electronic styles associated with the series.

Assassin's Creed Revelations will be available on November 15, 2011 for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC. The soundtrack is planned for release with the game.

Kyd's previous scores for the Assassin's Creed franchise have received top honors for Best Original Music including the Gold Spirit Awards, Hollywood Music In Media Awards, GameSpot.com Readers' Choice, GameSpy.com Editors' Choice, Game Audio Network Guild Awards, as well as nominations from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences, International Film Music Critics Association, IGN.com, G4 TV and Spike TV VGAs for Best Original Soundtrack.
