Report: Netflix In Talks For Diablo Animated Series

Hot off the heels of the successful Castlevania animated series, Netflix might be looking to add another video game adaptation to its library in the form of Blizzard's Diablo.

Andrew Cosby, founder of comics publisher Boom! Studios, tweeted on Wednesday that he's in talks to write the series in collaboration with Netflix and Activision-Blizzard. While the tweet has since been deleted, likely because it was publicly referring to a project that has not been announced, Variety managed to catch and report on it

Judging by Cosby's pedigree as the writer of the new Hellboy reboot and Netflix's penchant for more adult animation, Castlevania included, a Diablo series would likely veer toward the more mature end of the animation spectrum in terms of subject matter and violence. Seeing as how it's only in talks right now, however, it might be some time before we see anything from it.

The next release of Diablo will be a Switch port of Diablo III launching on November 2, while Blizzard has also indicated more Diablo projects are currently in the works.
