The president of Hi-Rez Studios has joked that Blizzard is copying characters from one of his games. Stew Chisam suggests that there are some fairly major comparisons to be drawn between the new Overwatch hero, Brigitte, and Paladins hero Ash.
We know all about Brigitte now, but who is the next Overwatch hero?
Since its release in September 2016, Hi-Rez’s hero shooter has been criticised for its apparent similarities to Overwatch, which was unveiled back in 2016. Hi-Rez maintain that their game had been in development since long before Overwatch’s unveiling in 2014, but there are undeniable similarities between the two - Paladins’ Fernando is a lot like Reinhardt, Ruckus rides a D’Va-style mech, Bomb King is reminiscent of Junkrat, and that’s not an exhaustive list.
