Naughty Dog Responds to Uncharted 4 Trailer’s Concept Art Controversy
Developer removes artwork, apologizes to Ubisoft.
Yesterday when Naughty Dog released a brand new trailer for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, it generated a routine amount of controversy. It wasn’t because of the trailer itself but because one particular scene featured concept art from Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
The developer was quick to remove the concept art and has since re-uploaded the trailer according to an update. “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.”
“We want to sincerely apologize to everyone at Ubisoft, the Assassin’s Creed team, the original artist, and our fans.”
