Diablo Animated Series Reportedly On The Way
While the movie industry is still trying to crack the code when it comes to adapting a video game into a film, it would appear that those focusing on smaller screens are finding better success. Netflix’s animated Castlevania series comes to mind, as it has been received favorably since it’s release last year. That said, it looks like the popular streaming service is eyeing yet another popular video game franchise to turn into an animated series – Diablo.
As reported by Variety, Boom! Studios founder Andrew “Andy” Cosby recently tweeted that he’s in “final talks” to to run and write an upcoming Diablo series from Activision and Netflix. The tweet, which has since been deleted, through the powers of the internet, can be seen below:
There’s a good chance Andy wasn’t supposed to confirm such information yet, which is likely why the tweet has been deleted. Cosby is also currently writing the screenplay for the upcoming Hellboy film reboot, so he might be the right person to head a series based on some rather Hellish entities. If there is one thing an animated Diablo series needs to be, it’s brutal, gory, and glorious.
No other information is known at this time, but now that the cat is potentially out of the bag, we just might hear official word from Netflix in the near future. Who knows, we might even see a 2019 release on the streaming service, but it’s all speculation at this point. As for what the Blizzard entity is up to these days, Diablo III is heading to the Nintendo Switch with the Eternal Collection, which you can read more about right here.
