A while back, rumours surfaced that a Diablo series would be making its way to Netflix, based on the action RPG game series from Blizzard Entertainment. And now it seems that this has now been confirmed, judging by the Linkedin profile of Activision Blizzard Studio’s president, Nick van Dyk, which says the anime series is currently in pre-production (thanks Gamespot).

The studio – not to be confused with Activision Blizzard Inc. – is the film and TV division, responsible for “adapting the company’s intellectual property to film and TV”.

The new information on the Diablo adaptation came to light from part of the job description on van Dyk’s profile and reads: “Executive producer of Diablo, a TV adaptation of Blizzard Entertainment’s IP, rendered in anime style. The show is currently in pre-production for distribution worldwide through Netflix.”
