In one of the most interesting pieces of news on the Internet, who would’ve thought that we’d get a confirmation of an animated film each for Overwatch and Diablo via LinkedIn?!
According to Activision Blizzard Studios Co-President Nick van Dyk’s LinkedIn profile, an anime remake of the Diablo video game is currently in pre-production. Furthermore, Nick will be the Executive Producer for the project which will be globally released soon on Netflix.
For quite some time now, rumors of this have been circulating but I guess this is the lowkey confirmation we need.

As for the Overwatch adaptation, Nick only said: “With my creative partner, developed and sold an animated series based on Blizzard’s Overwatch franchise.”
And in case you aren’t updated, there hasn’t been any news of any upcoming Overwatch series and who it was sold to. There is, however, a series of short clips of its backstory with CGI animated shorts, including the Overwatch 2 announcement cinematic.
