Uncharted 4 trailer out, may contain Assassin’s Creed concept art (Updated)

Earlier this morning, Sony and Naughty Dog had released a brand new trailer for the upcoming Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. The game’s Director, Neil Druckmann, went as far to call it “the best trailer in Naughty Dog’s history.” It’s an impressive trailer, highlighting a lot of what we’ll see when the game is released in April, but not everybody is happy with it.

That is especially true with Ubisoft as at the 1:36 mark of the trailer, there is a close up of a painting in Nathan Drakes room which looks oddly familiar to concept art that was released for Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. Aymar Azaïzia, head of content for the Assassin’s Creed franchise at Ubisoft Montreal, pointed the differences in a series of tweets.

 

 

Ubisoft, Sony and Naughty Dog have yet to comment on the situation but we’ll update once we have more info.

(UPDATE)

Naughty Dog has officially apologized for the use of the concept art in the trailer and Sony has officially removed the video and replaced it with a new one that uses a different framed picture.

“In our eagerness to get the story trailer out we made a regrettable mistake and didn’t thoroughly vet the art work used for an in game painting. We’ve already updated the trailer,” said Naughty Dog. “We hold all artistry in high regard and take full responsibility for having allowed this to happen.”

“We want to sincerely apologize to everyone at Ubisoft, the Assassin’s Creed team, the original artist, and our fans.”
