Uncharted 4 is thief-like in more ways than one
Original story: Today, the good people at Naughty Dog released a new trailer for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. In the midst of beautiful visuals, life-like cut scenes, and over-the-top action sequences a hot topic of controversy arose.
Exhibit one: the tweet from Ubisoft’s head of Assassin’s Creed content, Aymar Azaizia :
Now the details: at the 1:36 mark of the trailer, a piece of gold framed artwork, displayed for a second and then cut to a different tropical island location. In that one second many viewers, including Mr. Azaizia, called out Naughty Dog for using a piece of concept art that is spot-on like the one used in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
Take a look, pretty similar, huh?
The only difference between the two is the assassin-like figure in the bottom right.
Is this ground-breaking fisticuffs, crazy, petition-type of video game news? No, not really. But, it is a strange development, and I’m sure Ubisoft is on the phone right now in hope of figuring out some kind of compensation headed its way, soon.

Maybe, Naughty Dog was paying homage to what seems to be pretty cool artwork or maybe it was a copy and paste mistake.
Let the speculating begin: is there a future Nathan Drake, Assassin’s Creed cross-over in the works? Probably not — although it would be pretty epic. Maybe Drake is a pirate? What do you think? (Per update, no pirate Drake is in the works, sadly).
