The next video game franchise to get the screen treatment is Diablo, the popular role-playing dungeon crawler video game series from Blizzard But you won't see this hack-and-slash video game on the big screen - it's being developed as a Netflix animated series. The original tweet has since been deleted, but it stated that Cosby hopes "to the High Heavens" that it "all works out", which would tend to suggest that the deal is not final at this time.More news: SpaceX Will Take Tourists To Moon On It’s Falcon Heavy Rocket
The fact that Cosby had to delete the tweet perhaps lends a little credence to the project - Blizzard and Netflix wouldn't want to ruin the surprise, after all. The series has been in the rumor stage for some time, with Cosby himself even saying that such a project "would DEFINITELY be Rated R".
And specifically, it's happening in a manner similar to Netflix's other recent demon-adjacent video game adaptation, the excellent Castlevania: It'll be animated, too. And yes, it'll very much be R-rated.More news: Rare and dangerous fire whirl snatches hose from emergency crews in Canada
