Heavy Rain Composer Loses Battle to Cancer, Dies Aged 56
Normand Corbeil, the composer behind Quantic Dream's Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls has passed away on Friday, following a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 56.

The award-winning creative was diagnosed in August 2012, and was honoured with a BAFTA for his work on Heavy Rain in 2011. News of his passing was first announced by his son on The Cancer Forum, who called him "a great composer and an amazing dad."

As well as Quantic Dream's PlayStation 3 titles, Corbeil also had a hand in Fahrenheit, being the man behind the orchestral score and some additional music. It is not known at this time whether his work on Beyond: Two Souls was completed before his passing.

A great loss, and a true talent in video game cinematic composition. Rest in Peace, Normand.
