The upcoming World of Warcraft movie has been pushed back an extra three months and is now expected to debut June 10th, 2016, it’s been confirmed.
The announcement came following a news item from Variety and a tweet from the films director Duncan Jones:
Got good news & bad news. Uni have decided Warcraft deserves to be a summer flick. Yay! Bad news, that means we have to wait till June 2016!

Whilst shooting for the film has already been completed, the move comes as part of a major reshuffle from Universal Pictures after the studio recently confirmed the push back for both the reboot of The Mummy and Pacific Rim 2. Since the panel discussion at Blizzcon 2014, it’s been confirmed that World of Warcraft will be combining a mix of both live action and CGI technology. Vikings actor Travis Fimmel has been confirmed for the role of Anduin Lothar, along with Pacific Rim actor Robert Kazinsky as Orc leader Orgrim Doomhammer.

“Hearthstone may see Blizzard aiming at a more casual market, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth your time,” Dale wrote in his Hearthstone review.
Blizzard recently started public testing for the latest content drop for WoW expansion Warlords of Draenor.
