The HITMAN™ Original Soundtrack is the soundtrack for Square Enix's 2017 release HITMAN™. It was composed by Niels Bye Nielson, and is the second game in the entire Hitman franchise to not be composed by Jesper Kyd, the first being the 2012 release Hitman: Absolution, which was composed by Thomas Bärtschi, Peter Kyed, Peter Peter and Dynamedion.
The score presents mostly electronic tracks of background and special music, which is smoothly matched by the intense, fast paced gameplay, but can adjust to a slower feel. Some tracks, such as The Marketplace plays only in a certain section of A Gilded Cage, while The Showstopper is played mostly throughout the level. The entire soundtrack contains only 13 tracks, and has one of the shorter soundtrack lengths, being at 44 minutes and 17 seconds.
The soundtrack was released digitally through Steam, and through email for those who had purchased the HITMAN™ upgrade pack, or the full experience and linked their email with the Square Enix membership club. The soundtrack came with "The Making of HITMAN™" documentary, and was released on the same day the physical (SteelBook) edition of the game released, January 31st, 2017.
HITMAN™ is the first game to feature composer Niels Bye Nielson's music, who replaced composer Thomas Bärtschi and his work with Peter Kyed, Peter Peter and Dynamedion in Hitman: Absolution. It is expected that Nielson will appear in Season Two of HITMAN™, and any more seasons to come.
