A Diablo show on Netflix is imminent

, ,

While Netflix is exploring the world of gaming in other areas, it appears the company will be adding a Diablo show to its catalog. In a tweet that has since been deleted, Andrew Cosby let the cat out of the bag. As he put it:

“I guess I can confirm I am indeed in final talks to write and show-run the new Diablo animated series for Activision and Netflix.”

Cosby also added,  “It’s very exciting and I hope to the High Heavens it all works out.”

For those who don’t know, Cosby created Boom! Studios. The studio is a comic book publisher known for its work with Warhammer 40k and Irreedemable among others. Cosby is also helping pen the script for the new Hellboy reboot. Not only that, but he’s also responsible for the SyFy show Eureka. So it would make sense for the man to take on the Blizzard game.

Since the World of Warcraft movie, Blizzard Entertainment has been looking at bringing its gaming franchises to other mediums. While the movie didn’t strike a chord with critics, that doesn’t appear to stop the gaming giant from pursuing other franchises. 

Netflix did add a Castlevania anime to its catalog last year. The streaming giant is bringing a second season this year. We’re not sure if the Diablo show would be a similar format in terms of animation but it’s not Netflix’s first rodeo when it comes to bringing video games to the streaming world.

With Blizzconn coming up in November, we may see an official announcement then. The event starts on November 2, so we’re about six weeks away from finding out for sure. 

Would you watch a Diablo show? Does the idea of Blizzard bringing its games to other mediums excite you, or is it a waste of energy?  Let us know in the comments below or on Google+Twitter, or Facebook.
