The post from Weibo, Warcraft’s official Chinese social media account, showed up on the World of Warcraft Reddit.
A Warcraft sequel is not entirely surprising. Despite mostly negative reviews and bombing in the United States, it was a huge hit internationally, especially in China where 50% of World of Warcraft players are based in. While not confirmed, I don’t see why Duncan Jones wouldn’t direct Warcraft 2, as he wants to do a trilogy.
I’m overjoyed that Warcraft 2 is probably happening and can’t wait to return to Azeroth. While I had big problems with Warcraft (like the Alliance), I found it to be a much more enjoyable and better movie than people gave it credit for, as well as having great potential for a franchise. I go more in-depth about that here.
Is Warcraft 2 a movie you want to see, or did you hate the first one so much that you don’t care about seeing a sequel? Let us know in the comments below.
