The video game Diablo is getting an anime-style Netflix adaptation. It seems that Overwatch is also being turned into an animation, but we don’t know what style yet.

Diablo might work, could be a lot like netflixvania

Overwatch though? They already made animations whenever they make new characters, it's also an arena style shooter, so wheres the plot there?

I'll close this by saying; Shankar. Berserk. Now.


Combat Butler
Overwatch has loads of lore and backstory for an anime/show, people have also been saying "Overwatch TV series/movie when?" since the first cinematic reveal trailer (sad thing is it would look nowhere near as good as their cinematics do) lol I'm sure it'll be awful like everything else Blizz is involved in now days, but I'd check out a Diablo show.

A bit worried with these changes
If it's because of Azur Lane I wouldn't be too worried. This is a promising new studio and just got caught up in spot of poor scheduling on their first production. What should be concerning is whether they planned to outsource to any Chinese companies.
