EA and Respawn recently lifted the veil on Fuse, a new character heading to Apex Legends as part of Season 8. As soon as that reveal hit the internet, indie devs NOWWA felt like their work had been ripped off.
NOWAA is working on a title called BulletVille, which features the character Hunter. You can see Hunter above, as compared to Fuse from Apex Legends. Hunter has been shown publicly for the better part of 2 years now, so it's certainly possible someone at Respawn saw the design and was inspired by it. While EA and Respawn are yet to respond to the accusations, NOWWA shared the following statement with Nintendo Life.
“We are happy that the Apex Legends team liked Hunter’s style to the point of wanting to recreate it in Apex Legends - we were even hoping for an eventual crossover! Nonetheless, we are afraid that, as a small indie game producer whose game hasn’t been launched yet, we’ll be called a ripoff of Apex Legends, which is certainly not true. Hunter can count on two weapons: a pistol and rocket launcher. Guess what Fuse’s ultimate ability is? A rocket launcher."
