Experienced composers Cris Velasco and Jose Varon have joined forces to create The Audio Hive, a full-service music and audio production company for video games. They provide services for music, sound design, voiceovers, and audio implementation. The team includes many accomplished composers with combined experience in over 300 games such as Borderlands, Red Dead Redemption 2, The Witcher 3, Overwatch, and Horizon Zero Dawn.
Some notable members of The Audio Hive are sound designer Rodney Gates (Guerrilla Games, Sony Online Entertainment, High Moon Studios), voice and casting director Rob King (Shadow of the Tomb Raider, The Witcher 3, Devil May Cry), and business development manager Koyo Sonae (Red Dead Redemption 2, Devil May Cry 5, Resident Evil 7). These experts all contribute to the overall mission of The Audio Hive — being able to professionally complete every facet of a game’s audio. However, game developers can pick and choose individual services depending on their needs.
The Audio Hive is currently working on sound design for Remnant: From the Ashes, an upcoming survival shooter game. They have previously worked on an RTS game called Immortal, but it appears to be an abandoned project. With its experienced cast of audio specialists, we’ll definitely see The Audio Hive’s work on many upcoming games in some capacity.
