Wow, it looks like Naughty Dog stole concept art from Ubisoft

by Joshua Russo



This morning Naughty Dog put out a new story trailer for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. The trailer looks amazing, but might have more thievery than it intended. Viewers noticed a picture in the trailer that is identical to Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag concept art.

Naughty Dog animator Jonathan Cooper may be to blame, at least that’s what Far Cry 4 and Assassin’s Creed III director Alex Hutchinson seems to think.

Cooper worked with Hutchinson on Assassin’s Creed III before moving on to Naughty Dog to work on Uncharted 4. The art could have simply been used as a place holder until Naughty Dog got something else, but it’s definitely Ubisoft’s work. Check out the photos and see for yourself.

UPDATE: Naughty Dog has reuploaded the first trailer with a new image replacing the Ubisoft concept art.

UPDATE #2: Naughty Dog has apologized.
