Uncharted 4 trailer changed after using Assassin's Creed artwork

The Uncharted 4 story trailer was released yesterday evening, but was swiftly updated after it was discovered that concept art from Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag had been used.

Awkwardly, it was Ubisoft Montreal employee Azaïzia Aymar, who works as Assassin's Creed's head of content, that highlighted the concept art in the Uncharted 4 trailer. “Woooow Uncharted 4 using one of ACIV artwork in their trailer... I get the "thief" title now!” he tweeted.

Naughty Dog released a statement apologising to Ubisoft, the Assassin’s Creed team, the original artist, and the developer’s own fans.

“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. We hold all artistry in high regard and take full responsibility for having allowed this to happen,” it wrote in a blog post.

You can see the updated Uncharted 4 trailer below. The updated painting can be seen at 1:36.

For your own reference, here are the images that caused the drama in the first place with Uncharted's painting (top) and the Black Flag concept art (bottom).
