Netflix is reportedly working on an animated series based on the popular Diablo video games.
The news comes by way of a since-deleted tweet, so it’s best to take the whole thing with a grain of salt. As Variety reports, the tweet came from Boom! Studios founder Andrew “Andy” Cosby, who said that he was in “final talks” to helm a Diablo animated series for Activision Blizzard and Netflix. “It’s very exciting and I hope to the High Heavens it all works out.”
Cosby is currently co-writing the script for Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen alongside Christopher Golden and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola.
Diablo is an action role-playing series developed by Blizzard Entertainment. The most recent entry, Diablo III, has sold over 30 million copies since its original release in 2012 and is slated to come to Nintendo Switch on November 2, 2018.
