David Georgeson and Jeremy Soule are working together on a mystery project

David Georgeson is best known, of late, for the work he did on both Landmark and EverQuest Next before departing Daybreak. Jeremy Soule is known for making amazing soundtracks for so many games that it's impractical to list all of them in tags. Now, we know that they're joining forces to develop orbital satellites to ensure their domination over the world... or just to make some great music for something.

So what are these two creative souls working on? We really don't know. But if you're familiar with the work of both people involved, there's good reason to get excited about the prospect.

I'm guessing it's a 2017 xmas carols album.

Before Soule works on anything else, he ought to see to it his customers get what they paid for from his soundtrack website. I've been waiting on my disc set for three years now, and my discount requests were ignored. Despite my (and others') complaint to the BBB, there is nothing but silence from him. He should be ashamed to show any of his work until he's made some attempt to show he's not a complete douche.

It would be nice if Jeremy Soule would deliver on his two years overdo Kickstarter symphony The Northerner.  People are asking for refunds and he's taking on new project after new project.  Pretty shady.

Two of my favorite people! I look forward to hearing about it

I'll be happy when scam artist Jeremy Soule stops showing up in the news.  Or at least shows up for the right reasons.

This is unlikely to have anything to do with a game Massively covers since Soule signed an exclusivity deal with SOE just last year. So unless that deal was for a tiny timeframe or went up in smoke like storybricks it probably isn't mmo related.

Would be nice if Soule ever finishes his Kickstarter project...


Sometime in the next 50 years maybe? Ha.... ha.

very confused as to what the two would possibly have in common to work toward a project together.  One is a glorified CM, master of spin.  The other is a world renowned composer for games and movies.

Not to excited about anything related with this.

DG is the master of hype, and given the progress (or lack of) on EQN when DG was in charge?

Well, I think there is more smoke & mirrors here than substance.

I need more Dave Georgeson in my life.

I don't give a flying fart if it's not related to a MMO.  For all I know, they could be sitting down at a casio keyboard playing chopsticks and calling it a project.

This ought to be worth keeping an ear out for.

Jeremy's been working on his kickstarter project, the northerner.

I wonder if he's helping out on The Northerner.

Wait, maybe I'm dumb, but is it a music project?  Or an MMO?

Who of note is still working at Daybreak anyway?

@A Dad Supreme @Armsbend Especially because it's only ever the artists, managers, and designers that are mentioned, very rarely the engineers with the tech that make the game possible.

@Samizdat @A Dad Supreme @Armsbend Obviously the unknown workers have to have talent most people will never recognize but look at a game like firefall. Great game play and lots of great game design over the years but what a fucking disaster of a project.


All the talent in the world isn't going to save you if you don't have someone that can lead a team to see a games full potential. Someone has to be able to put it all together. That is a super rare skill in people, and what most people are referring to when they talk about famous designers vrs the lucky one hit wonders.

@ManastuUtakata @Ehra @A Dad Supreme @Armsbend It's clear he's a musician, and it's clear I'm talking about/referring to Arm's point about people working at Daybreak.

He's not talking about artists, musicians, customer service staff or interns.

I think you're stretching what's clearly a game development issue into something else, not sure why, Mana.

@Armsbend I think the whole 'of note' when it comes to developers is highly overrated.

Probably the best games have developers we will never hear of or will never know about.

I hate it when people get caught up in the whole "this guy is famous, so he's sure to do something great" when in reality most of them are one-hit wonders at best, and fail miserably trying to re-create what made them famous in the first place.

Many times, half of the 'of note' folks didn't actually do most of the work or even the important stuff on it in the first place.

I am not stretching anything. And I am well aware your wish to focus on game developers in your discourse. However, I believe my point in general, that while I agree to degree of "one hit wonders" is something to be weary of in whatever industry, I prefer to see whatever project being produced by whomever come to fruition first before I start passing judgement to whether it will be worthy or not. I am not sure why this is an offensive position to bring it into a more general observation.

No one is 'passing judgement' on the project. No one is passing judgement on anything actually.

All is given is a position based on pretty clear evidence industry wide; odds are heavily against people who have made or helped make a prior successful hit game and tried to replicate that success. 

Music isn't judged the same way; Mr Soule could likely run his fingers over a keyboard and still sell music. Games aren't that way.

Very cool, I'm looking forward to seeing whatever it is!  Much respect for both of them....

@captainzor I love to set the GW2 soundtrack playing in the background sometimes too.

@captainzor Oh, I didn't know he was responsible for that soundtrack. I loved that game. Sooo many hours playing that at home and my local comic book shop. Good times.

I also liked the Command and Conquer soundtracks too.

David Georgeson and Jeremy Soule are freaking creative souls. Cross fingers and let's hope the best.
