The Legend of Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma was asked by IGN in an interview what inspired the team working on the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. He said Red Dead Redemption 2 was the teams biggest inspiration.

"[Something] I did hear that a lot of people were playing was Red Dead Redemption 2," said Aonuma.


"When I was working on Breath of the Wild, the director [Hidemaro Fujibayashi] was playing Skyrim," Aonuma added.

He was asked what new games he has been playing recently and he said "Recently I've been very busy, especially with Link's Awakening... So on my breaks I've been playing Cadence of Hyrule. So I've been kind of overloaded with a lot of Zelda recently."

Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the most boring and overrated games I've ever played, so there goes my anticipation for the next Zelda.

That could be very good or very bad. Red dead 2 is one of those games when it's good it's amazing and when it's bad it awful.

Imagine being inspired by a worse game.

Well considering RDR2 is 2018's most overrated game IMO...

The only thing I could think of that could be a major plus is if the random encounters from RDR2 kind of make their way into the game, as that would really help Hyrule feel much more alive. All of the tedious stuff from RDR2 can stay away though.
