[Event] Hi-Rez Studios Takes the Title a Bit Too Far…Accidentally

Hi-Rez Studios has reportedly severed ties using the overseas contractor accountable for using Overwatch’s map loading screen in many of Paladins Strike’s promotional skin art. According to a bit published by Kotaku earlier today, Paladins brand manager Alex Cantatore relayed directly to Tera Items them via email that if a (admittedly short) investigation, they’ve permit the contractor under consideration go.
    “We are incredibly disappointed a contractor for that mobile hero shooter, Paladins Strike, widely used artwork from another game within the splash art for that Covert Ops Lex skin. Unfortunately since this piece got their start in what was previously a dependable outsourcer, this hadn't go through an entire internal review cycle at Hi-Rez generating it on the public.”
Hi-Rez Studios learned a vital lesson the other day: be aware of everything that’s entering one of your respective games — regardless of whether you’ve shopped the work over to someone else. (And yes, before I get started… I know we’re covering another mobile game today.)
Yesterday, an Overwatch player posted Tera XBOX Items a picture of some splash art in Hi-Rez’s mobile game Paladins Strike on Reddit, comparing it to Overwatch’s Lijiang Tower. To tell the truth, no comparison was needed, because in addition to some blur plus the addition in the Paladins Strike logo plus a character from the foreground, it’s literally a similar piece.
Of course, someone crossposted the comparison on the Paladins subreddit, and the experience’s Art Director was immediately for the case. According with their post, the artwork was something that they done by an “overseas partner studio,” and Hi-Rez apparently trusted them enough to get (really) lax for their oversight from the project — meaning the piece got into the experience without anyone thinking about it closely.
It’s a screwed up situation being sure. On usually the one hand. You should be in a position to trust people you’re paying to build something that you can not steal from another individual in order to try and do it. On another, you almost certainly shouldn’t have confidence in them that much and perform some cross checks before in what they give you. … Just being safe.
It does seem Hi-Rez has learned their lesson, in the event the response on Reddit is anything to visit by, the way it promised a “shift” in how splash art is handled, letting them “control articles,” leading to higher quality work for the same time.
Just a compact note: Since the information due to this post was originally published to Massively OP by among their readers, we desired to give them credit where it’s due. So, go give some like to Luke.
