Nicely, an Activision Blizzard govt’s resume now hints that Blizzard did discover the opportunity of an precise Overwatch TV present, one that may even nonetheless be on the way in which — and there could also be a Diablo one, too.
In response to the LinkedIn profile of Nick van Dyk, who simply so occurs to be in control of the a part of Activision Blizzard chargeable for constructing TV reveals and films, he was personally concerned in creating and promoting an animated Overwatch TV present. The remainder of his resume suggests he may need been simply the person for the job: he beforehand labored at Disney, the place he performed a key position in serving to the corporate purchase Pixar, and he apparently offered an anime-style Diablo present to Netflix as properly.
If that’s true, it confirms a long-time rumor that Netflix had one within the works — although it’s not clear if the present remains to be in manufacturing. van Dyk’s profile notes that the Overwatch TV collection was solely “offered,” not greenlit, and that the Diablo present was in “pre-production” in some unspecified time in the future.
