The famous video game franchises Diablo and Overwatch are both being turned into animated series for Netflix. The report comes from Nick van Dyk, who is the co-president of Activision Blizzard Studios.
According to van Dyk, Diablo is being adapted to an animated adaptation “rendered in anime style,” and it’s currently in pre-production. There is no news on Overwatch or the animation style. All he said about the show is that he “developed and sold an animated series based on Blizzard’s Overwatch franchise,” alongside his creative partner.
But this is it, there’s no other information to be revealed by now. These are both tremendous franchises that have significant fanbases so if these shows end up actually being good shows with storylines and characters, they could be massive hits, just like Castlevania. Hopefully, they get some amazing talented creative teams to make these shows and make them a huge hit with the fan following.
