According to Ubisoft’s Maxime Bernard, when Steven Spielberg was at E3 he mentioned that he gets some of his ideas from games like Splinter Cell.
“He had an entourage… and he said to his friend ‘it gives us a lot of ideas, it’s very inspiring'” Bernard told OXM. “I was thinking, like, wow. If we made a game that inspires Spielberg then [censored], we’re doing something good here.”
Guess it has to come from somewhere.
