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."
