Considering some of the code apparently came directly (correct me on that) from Assassin's Creed 3...
yeahh i heard they're in trouble for this
Only if it's true. I mean the animations do look similar but there's so many possibilities as to why. The obvious one being that it could be the same animator, or someone who's worked on the AC series.
Also, there's only so many ways you can animate someone climbing onto things in a realistic fashion, everything is going to look pretty similar, you could just as easily say it looks like they stole Uncharted's animations.
