If you listen to our podcast you know how much we hold Blizzard's Overwatch sacred. Overwatch is life! But there is a Chinese developer called 4399 who seems to love Overwatch more than us, I know, crazy right!? Well they liked it so much they created a mobile game titled Heroes Of Warfare(geez, what a terrible name) that seems to of rip-offed Overwatch...I believe the word is BLATANTLY! Don't believe me?! Check out this game play...
The map is the Ruins in Ilios!!! Still don't believe me? Check out this video and fast forward to the 3 minute mark.
Yup! It's the Well map in Ilios. If you notice even the characters are likenesses are a ripooff Clark=Mccree, Allen=Soldier, to name a few. Not only that but if you are a healer when a teammate needs healing it looks exactly the same. The difference is it 5 on 5 not 6 on 6...yeah way to cover up your blatant copyright infringement.
So with that, Blizzard is suing the Chinese developer for obvious reasons. They will obviously win, although, I did download and play Heroes Of Warfare and its actually pretty fun. Now my question is, Blizzard has a game on Mobile called Hearthstone, do you think we will ever see an official Overwatch mobile game? I don't know about you, but I'd play it.
