Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarök has won the first-ever GRAMMY Award for Best Score Soundtrack for Video Games and Other Interactive Media. The award was received by Stephanie Economou, composer of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarök’s DLC.
Last night’s GRAMMY Award ceremony brought about several surprises and took the gaming community by surprise. The 65th GRAMMY Awards ceremony included a brand new category honoring video games and their composers. Coming out victorious last night was Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarök (DLC) and its composer, Stephanie Economou.
Games Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarok was competing with:
Aliens: Fireteam Elite, Austin Wintory (Composer)
Call of Duty: Vanguard, Bear McCreary (Composer)
Winner: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Dawn of Ragnarok, Stephanie Economou (Composer)
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Richard Jacques (Composer)
Old World, Christopher Tin (Composer)
In the past, the GRAMMY Awards have awarded select games, but never before was an entire section dedicated to them. Kirby was nominated for a GRAMMY in 2022, and a piece by Civilization IV won for Best Instrumental Arrangement. The new award, ‘Best Score Soundtrack for Video Games and Other Interactive Media,’ was to help celebrate and appreciate the legacy and past accomplishments of composers working in the gaming industry.
