So I just saw this blowing up on twitter and.... what the fuck Telltale? This is a heck of an oversight. Didn't see any other topics on this?

For reference CNN article of the assassination from last year: http://www.cnn.com/2016/12/20/europe...ter/index.html

That is incredibly fucked up. I'd like to hope it's a case of randomly googling a dead body and using it, which is still bad. But if its deliberate, just, damn...not good.

It's not from a movie. For real.

It was an actual murder. Spent a day or so in the news.

I can only think whoever did this wants to get fired for whatever reason. Telltale only allowed to develop the countless games from jail cells without Internet tho?

Googling references for a dead body, confuse news picture in results for a stock photo, photoshop.

And to be fair, that original picture does look like a stock photo.

Still, even if it was a stock photo, this means Telltale used what they assumed was a stock photo without paying a license, so even if that wasn't a real dead russian dignitary, it would look bad on them.

So: Best case scenario we have something of a "tali without her mask" level.

They put some concept art from an AC game as a photo prop in Uncharted 4.

Naughty Dog used an asset from Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag in one of the sections of Uncharted 4 if I recall correctly. Not exactly the same as this.

Yeah, I thought that was fishy too but if you do a reverse search for the photo you'll find the original CNN article from last December. Basically, guy was speaking at an art gallery and was shot moments later.

Because yeah, at face value even the second shot doesn't look "real" but it in fact is.
Here is the article on CNN.
