A Short History in Defense of 'Overwatch Clone' Assertions

A Short History in Defense of 'Overwatch Clone' Assertions - MMORPG.com

Hi-Rez Studios' Todd Harris has taken to the Paladins Reddit channel to present a brief history of the game from concept through its current open beta phase. The post compares Paladins and Overwatch throughout their respective development cycles and is in response to some community members asserting that it is an "Overwatch clone".

While Overwatch is a fine game, we want people to understand that game development is an iterative process with many ideas coming from past projects. This is true for Hi-Rez and almost every other game studio. For a hero shooter, the game that deserves the most credit for the genre is TF2.

Check out the Paladins Reddit channel to read more.

Thanks, anonymous tipster!
