Blizzard is developing an animated series for both popular games Overwatch and Diablo in 2020.
It seems Riot Games isn’t the only company working on an animated series based off of their game’s storyline. The president of Activision Blizzard Studios, Nick van Dyk confirmed the rumors around Diablo receiving its own animated series.
The series is currently in pre-production with Netflix, we don’t have a date on when the show will be released but it will probably take some time. Diablo series will be an anime-style show for Netflix, much like Castlevania.
An Overwatch animated series is also in the making, it has been sold as part of the deal with Activision Blizzard Studios. We still don’t have any information about the Overwatch show, the animation style is still unknown.
A movie adaptation of Call of Duty is in development after being put on hold, it was also said that the writer of academy award-nominated Joker, Scott Silver, has said to have joined the project.
“It’s going to have the same sort of high-adrenaline, high-energy aesthetic as the game, but it’s not a literal adaptation,” said van Dyk in an interview with The Guardian. “It’s a much more broad and inclusive, global in scope…a big, tentpole, Marvel-esque movie.”
