Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann Says Quantum Break Dev’s Work Has Been a “Big Inspiration”

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has been unanimously praised by not just critics but also other industry professionals and celebrities including Microsoft’s Phil Spencer and Jimmy Fallon. Back in April, folks over at Remedy Entertainment lauded Naughty Dog for its work, with Creative Director Sam Lake sending over a signed copy of Quantum Break to Neil Druckmann. In response, Druckmann has signed a copy of Uncharted 4 for Sam Lake, revealing that he’s a “long time fan” and that Lake’s games have been a “big inspiration” for him.

It’s great to see a public display of mutual respect between industry professionals and certainly sets an example.

Remedy’s last game for PlayStation was 2003’s Max Payne 2, following which the developer worked on a number of games for Microsoft’s platforms. Naughty Dog was acquired by Sony to develop for PlayStation in 2001.
