Former Ubisoft dev claims Middle-earth Shadow of Mordor using Assassin's Creed code


Posted by: Matt Liebl

Charles Randall, a former team lead on the Assassin's Creed series, has accused Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment of using Assassin's Creed 2 animation and code in their upcoming game, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. Randall apparently spotted similarities between the two in the latest Shadow of Mordor gameplay video.

While at Ubisoft, Randall "snuck" the air assassination move in Assassin's Creed 1, which was later fully implemented in Assassin's Creed 2

Looking at the video for the first time, there does appear to be similarities, but Randall seems confident in his accusations.

Randall acknowledged that Ubisoft could have licensed the code or struck some sort of deal with Warner Bros., but we've contacted the Shadow of Mordor developer for additional information.
