A LinkedIn profile adds more fuel to the Diablo animated series fire

More like Dia-BLOWs, right?

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 itOr 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.

I am going to start adding some weird and wacky shit to my LinkedIn profile just to mess with the rumour mill. “Yeah, I am a product developer for the new lager that has Skittles in it — Skittlebrau!”

Absolutely disgraceful betrayal of the traditional cable-based diehard fans that are the only true members of the Blizzard community.

If there is one thing I never got, cable TV was it. Always felt completely worthless for me. Though, granted, I live in a country where even at its peak cable TV never got even close to free TV in audience.

Im curious how they will shoe horn microtransactions into an animated series.

The Special edition will have full CGI effects. In the standard edition all monsters will be portrayed by sock puppets.
