2003 Best Original Music in a Game Award) with
an entirely new original score for Hitman: Contracts.

in the debut movie trailer for Hitman: Contracts.
Hitman: Contracts score follows the dark, sinister
nature of the third Hitman game", said Kyd, who
previously scored Hitman 2: Silent Assassin and
its predecessor Hitman: Codename 47. "The soundtrack
is a dark and adventurous score mixed with suspenseful
electronica elements", he added. Kyd has written
more than 90 minutes of original music for Hitman:
