According to Ubisoft representative Raha Bouda, “When a new NPC is spawned, a new name is randomly generated from a bank of more than 1,000 options — and it’s a random mix of first names and last names. Most of these names are taken from annual most popular names books as well as from building names. Any NPC with the name Kavon Fortin appears by random in the game and it is absolutely not an intentional reference to Trayvon Martin — in fact, these names were solidified in-game before the Trayvon Martin incident.”

People are really grasping for straws now just to badmouth anyone or anything.

I really despise Ubisoft, but really?

In X-Men: Days of Future Past, Iceman should have blocked since he gets no damage from beams while blocking.

RNG. It's totally coincidental.

If the Ubisoft rep's explanation is anything to go by, I would say it's just a coincidence. The names are only mildly similar, and we can't just assume any dead, black man in a hoodie is Trayvon Martin.
