Telltale’s Batman Appears To Use Real Photo Of Assassinated Russian Ambassador

The picture appears in the newly release Episode two: The Pact when Bruce Wayne and Alfred are exploring crimes. Kotaku has achieved to Telltale for comment, but has yet to listen for affirmation or a statement.

Andrei Karlov, the Russian Ambassador to Turkey, was assassinated at an art gallery in Ankara. The episode made international news, and also the picture video and photographs depicting the murder were widely circulated. The AP photographer who shot the pictures won top prize in the 2017 World Press Photo contest.
