Uncharted 4 Devs

Yesterday, Sony was teasing something that later turned out to be an Uncharted 4 Story trailer. It is believed to be one of the best trailers to come out of Naughty Dog but something really strange happened.

Uncharted 4 story trailer featured an art from Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. The situation quickly turned highly embarrassing and many Ubi devs used this opportunity to take a few jabs at ND and Sony.

Shots fired! That was brutal..

Sony quickly reacted to the matter and explained how this was an honest mistake and they didn’t properly vet the art used in the trailer. The company has now formally apologized to Ubisoft.

In our eagerness to get the story trailer out we made a regrettable mistake and didn’t thoroughly vet the artwork 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.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End trailer was amazing but such controversy surrounding it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth. The art has now been removed from the trailer and ND showed some class by admitting their mistake.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End is coming to PlayStation 4 on April 26, be sure to pick it up and we hope, rest of the arts used in the game belong to Naughty Dog.

What do you think of the whole situation? Classy of ND to remove the art and apologize?
