"It's very exciting and I hope to the High Heavens it all works out", he said. According to a since-deleted tweet from screenwriter Andy Cosby, an animated series set in the world of Sanctuary (that's the realm in which the Diablo games take place) is on the way.
"I think I can confirm that I am actually in the process of concluding negotiations to write and direct the animated series Diablo for the account of Activision, and Netflix".
This is all on the subject, for now, we will keep you posted when new info becomes available. Either way, the extra publicity is sure to be welcome as the Nintendo Switch version of Diablo III was one of the worst-kept secrets imaginable and look how excited everybody is about that one. Still, it hasn't prevented the series from becoming wildly popular, landing on several outlets' lists for greatest video games of all time.
Rumors began circulating several weeks ago that Netflix will be adapting Blizzard Entertainment's Diablo franchise into a TV series. It's likely he wasn't supposed to break the news just yet and Netflix/Blizzard more than likely asked him to remove the Tweet. This could be a very cool and unique addition to the streaming platform's ever-growing library of shows.
