[VentureBeat] Activision Blizzard opens movie studio to create films and TV shows based on its games

Activision Blizzard has finally gone Hollywood. The world’s No. 2 video game publisher is announcing today the launch of Activision Blizzard Studios, a new in-house film and television studio devoted to creating original movies and TV shows based on the company’s video games.

In doing so, the company has embraced the “transmedia” strategy of extending content to different entertainment media. And Activision Blizzard has some very good content, including game brands Call of Duty, Skylanders, Diablo, Hearthstone, and StarCraft. And if the company’s just-announced $5.9 billion acquisition of King goes through, it will soon own the Candy Crush Saga social mobile gaming brand and other properties as well. It’s a strategy to become a mammoth entertainment giant, with rivals such as Warner Bros. and Disney.

Warcraft the Movie is coming soon.

Diablo the movie?
Starcraft the movie?
COD the movie? or TV shows?

I am interested to be honest.

Also here is the latest Warcraft trailer.

I would watch a Diablo TV show. Is that weird? I feel like it would be badass. Some of the cut scenes were actually quite compelling.

i wonder if any of those will be a comedy about its own genre of games (like, Diablo show poking fun at RPGs)

i would prefer a PurePwnage style show, though.

i always found their cinematics to be very well done. great to hear we might get stuff longer than cutscenes and trailers to watch.

one act for each show season? that would be neat. though, maybe kind of a short run? (5 diablo acts, 5 seasons?)

Hold your horses guys. Seems like first they are going to create a COD movie first and perhaps a TV Show which will feature in 2018 earliest...
