We’re sure this is an honest mistake, but somehow the new trailer for Uncharted 4 – which you can view here – contains concept art for Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag. Ubisoft Montreal’s Aymar tweeted:
Woooow Uncharted 4 using one of ACIV artwork in their trailer… I get the "thief" title now! https://t.co/rholpuvw9I lol at 1:36

He the followed this with an image from the trailer…
… and the concept art from Black Flag. Oops.
UPDATE: Naughty dog have issued an apology.
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.
