Paladins vs Overwatch! Fight!

While Blizzard’s reveal of the new Overwatch hero — Brigitte — might have been met with a lot of excitement and praise from fans, that sentiment doesn’t seem to be shared by the people at Hi-Rez Studios, the developers behind free-to-play hero shooter, Paladins.

Over on Twitter, Hi-Rez Studios head honcho Stewart Chisam commented on the similarities between Overwatch’s Brigitte, and the studio’s own Ash.

Quick poll: If I happened to notice and point out any similarities between these two characters, would that make me the Pot calling the Kettle black, or the Kettle calling the Pot black? This will keep me up tonight unless I get a clear answer.

At first glance, Brigitte does look like Ash given their armors and all. Thought Brigitte uses a flail and not a gun like Ash. Having said that, it’s pretty apparent that Brigitte has been influenced by Reinhardt, which could be a strong case for Blizzard.

Do you think Blizzard copied Paladins this time or is this just a coincidence? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
