World of Warcraft film Delayed

Warcraft, a film based on Blizzard's famous World of Warcraft MMO, has been delayed by three months.

Originally scheduled for a December 2015 release, the official Warcraft Twitter account has announced that it will now release in March 2016

The announcement comes only a month after Blizzard announced firm plans for the film's release at its annual Blizzcon event.

First announced in 2006, Warcraft was to originally be directed by Sam Raimi before Duncan Jones was confirmed as the director earlier this year. Its rumored Colin Farrel will play the lead role.

Jones revealed at Blizzcon that the adaptation will trace the origins of the human / orc conflict, and will star characters Lothar and Durotan in leading roles.

"Ultimately, both of these men are going to find themselves at this crux point of history and will be put to the test," Metzen explained. "Working with these two characters allowed us to tell this story in a much tighter way than we've been able to in the game. It's been a really rewarding experience."
