ACIV composer Brian Tyler is among four others nominated for the prestigious Composer of the Year Award. Additionally, he received a nomination for Best Original Score for an Action/Adventure/Thriller Film ("Iron Man 3"). Tyler was also responsible for the soundtrack for Army of 2: The Devil's Cartel. Previous winners for the gaming Best Score award include Austin Wintory (Journey), Joe Hisaishi (Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch), and Oscar Araujo (Castlevania: Lords of Shadow).

The winners will be announced on February 20. Don't forget that in our end-of-year awards, we gave Black Flag the Best Music award, 'cuz it really deserved it.
