Activision Signes Emmy-Nominee Joel Goldsmith To Score Call Of Duty 3

Company: Activision
Product: Call of Duty 3

Activision announced today that it has signed award-winning composer Joel Goldsmith to score the soundtrack for the eagerly-awaited release of Call of Duty 3. Goldsmith is currently nominated for an Emmy for his work on "Stargate: Atlantis," with credits that also include "Kull the Conqueror," "Shadow of a Doubt," "Helen of Troy" and "Witchblade," among many others. Goldsmith's work with Call of Duty 3 marks his console video game debut in a career that spans more than twenty years.

"Goldsmith is one of the most versatile and talented music composers in the business and we’re excited to have him on board for Call of Duty 3," said Tim Riley, Activision's Worldwide Executive of Music. "Fans know to expect a 'cinematically intense' experience from the Call of Duty franchise – Goldsmith is the man for the job."

The son of legendary composer Jerry Goldsmith, Joel collaborated with his father on several projects over the years, most notably on Star Trek: First Contact. The younger Goldsmith launched his career in the late seventies, and began to gain particular notoriety with projects that included The Man with Two Brains (1983) and then later The New Untouchables (1993), allowing Goldsmith to solidify his style, one that has since come to be marked by big, bold, symphonic scores. A three-time Emmy nominee for his work with "Stargate: Atlantis" and "SG-1," Goldsmith currently serves as resident composer for the latter. For more information on Goldsmith, visit

Call of Duty 3 is scheduled for release this fall for the Xbox 360™ and Xbox™ video game and entertainment systems from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and Nintendo’s Wii™. Call of Duty 3 is not yet rated by the ESRB.
