There probably won't be another Warcraft movie, but here's what the director wants to tackle if there was

The Warcraft film is a weird phenomenon to unpack. On paper, it was successful -- it grossed over $433 million worldwide, more than twice its $160 million budget. That's usually enough to cover marketing costs (double), but this one is an u...   read

Heroes of the Storm adopts MOBA-standard 'armor' system, doubles down on ranked play
