It turns out, Reznor acted as a “music consultant” for the piece and got a shout out recently from the game’s Twitter account.

The teaser’s YouTube listing lists Reznor as “music consultant” and, as Consequence of Sound reports, fans are speculating that the NIN mastermind helped link in directors Tim Cronenweth and Jeff Cronenweth, with whom Reznor teamed scoring Gone Girl and Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
Reznor’s role on the final game is to be seen, but this is not his first foray into the realm of video game music. Nine Inch Nails soundtracked Darkness II and Reznor wrote the theme song for Call of Duty: Black Ops II.
Batman: Arkham Knight will be released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on June 23.
