    AC Dev Says Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor copied AC

    Ha this was a funny read for me.

    A former developer on the Assassin’s Creed games has suggested Monolith is using code and assets from Assassin’s Creed II on Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor.

    Charles Randall, who worked on Assassin’s Creed and Assassin’s Creed II, highlighted the similarities over Twitter last night following the release of Shadow of Mordor gameplay footage.

    “Seriously, can someone tell me how Assassin's Creed 2 code and assets are in this Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor game?” he asked.

    Responding to a reply about the tweet, he added, “This is *my* code in that game! I better at least see myself in the special thanks. WTF?”

    Randall was specifically referencing Shadow of Mordor’s combat and air assassinations, which he says are exactly the same as those he created for the Assassin’s Creed series. “I recognize my **** in that vid,” he said.

    “I'm fine with it if people know what it is. But if they think they are going to sneak this under the radar... SO MUCH NOPE.”

    He added, “I know I don't have any legal rights to what I did on Assassin's Creed 2 but I sure hope I get a special thanks on that Middle Earth game.”

    Despite his obvious shock, Randall is not accusing Monolith of stealing the assets and code from Assassin’s Creed. He clarified later, “People seem to think I was implying theft -- not at all. I just assumed either a licensing deal or just AC used as heavy reference.”

    Randall is currently working on the timed Xbox One exclusive Below, with Capybara Games.

    Ubisoft will sue, it's a breach of copyright laws.
