It seems that Blizzard could be working on a Diablo Netflix TV-Show adaption that could see its popular RPG series come to life in ways we have never seen before.
On the 8th of March, Blizzard Entertainment registered a “goods and services” trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office that includes “Downloadable films and movies featuring narratives based on a video game and provided via a video-on-demand service”.
The trademark was registered under the DIABLO name which is quite clear that Blizzard is not working on a World of Warcraft series but looking to adopt the Diablo series for TV. The trademark includes “services having the basic aim of entertainment, amusement or recreation of people”, among other things.
However, the trademark registration is one thing but it seems to have a link to Hellboy Series Screenwriter, Andrew Cosbey who tweeted already last year in September that he was working on a new Diablo animated series for Activision and Netflix. The tweet was deleted but the screenwriter teased yet again last week that he was indeed working on something that is just so “frikkin’ cool!”
It’s killing me that I can’t talk openly about my new super secret project, because my new super secret project is just so frikkin’ cool! Soon… very soon…

It is now the second time we have seen Cosby speak out about something he is working on and the trademark appearing and his tweet about it all within the same week just seems a little too coincidental. Hopefully, we will see Blizzard announce something soon in regards to the this so-called “TV adaption”.
