Gamers get ready for the biggest Grand Theft Auto soundtrack ever created.
Rockstar soundtrack supervisor Ivan Pavlovich confirmed GTA 5 has the “largest soundtrack” in franchise history.
“It’s the largest soundtrack that we’ve done, and the largest score that we’ve done. For this game, which is set in our version of modern day Los Angeles, what was important for us was to capture that feeling of L.A. and California,” Pavlovich said.
Pavlovich said Rockstar wanted to recreate what modern Los Angeles would sound like, including introducing Grand Theft Auto’s first pop radio station.
“We approached the radio stations as the musical soundscape (you experience) as you fly into L.A. One of the things we’ve never done in a GTA game before is a pop station; exploring that made so much sense in the context of L.A.,” Pavlovich said.
Cameos in the game and on the soundtrack include Waaves, Pam Grier, Bootsy Collins, Kenny Loggins, and Jesco White, of the documentary The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia.
