Blizzard Entertainment seems to be doing something pretty cool with the Diablo and Overwatch series. President of Activation-Blizzard, Nick van Dyk, posted a project description on his LinkedIn about a TV adaptation for the series.
“Executive producer of Diablo, a TV adaptation of Blizzard Entertainment’s IP, rendered in anime style. The show is currently in pre-production for distribution worldwide through Netflix.
With my creative partner, developed and sold an animated series based Blizzard’s Overwatch franchise.”
Netflix is currently the distributor of the Diablo series, but it’s unclear who will make the Overwatch show. Though there are numerous streaming services that Blizzard can go with.
Personally I’d be very interested in an Overwatch series, as someone who played the game since it came out in 2016. Overwatch often has comics and other in-game lore, but we’re still missing information about many of its characters. And honestly when is Zenyatta going to get some love.
