Fortnite Overwatch Skins
The most infamous skins that look similar to each other are the Ark skin, which was recently released in Fortnite, and Mercy's classic skin.
A debate stirred overnight when the Ark skin was announced through Epic Games' social media pages for Fortnite. Fans were quick to compare the skins, noting the outfit and hairstyles were very similar in design. Because both skins are inspired by angels, there are aspects of the design that look alike.
Because both games are popular, although Fortnite's popularity is unmatched, it is likely other skins in the future will borrow ideas from the other.
