The rumor about a Diablo animated series has been running for ages now, and the latest bit of evidence that this is a real thing comes in the form of co-president of Activision Blizzard Studios Nick van Dyk’s LinkedIn page. Specifically, on that page he notes that an animated show is in production for distribution on Netflix (you guys all have Netflix, right?), while also noting a successful pitch for an Overwatch animated series. It certainly looks pretty definitive, but also isn’t an actual announcement in any way, shape, or form.
Of course, the rumor in question isn’t new; after the company opened a studio for producing shows, there was also a trademark filing for Diablo in the field of videos. It’s one of those rumors that’s been floating around for a while, and in light of these latest developments it certainly seems like there’s some truth to it. Or it’s just a rumor that won’t die and it’s all smoke and mirrors. Which one you believe kind of depends on how much you really want a series based on the games.
