Blizzard President Interviewed
8:30 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

In an interview with Mercury News, Blizzard Entertainment's President Mike Morhaime talked about the company's overwhelming success with World of Warcraft. The interview covers a mix of topics including reasons behind WoW's dominance, and the creation of a Warcraft movie.

Q: Are you going to do a movie with the Warcraft universe?
A: Yes, we are. It’s something we have been wanting to do from the beginning. We have always thought the universe was rich enough to make a great movie. Really we are taking a time to find a great partner. Anyone who has seen movies based on games knows that it’s pretty easy to have them come out not right. We wanted to have a partner with the same vision of how epic and cool this could really be. We are thrilled to have found Legendary. They share a lot of our philosophies. They don’t do a lot of projects. They try to make sure that the projects they take on are really big. Batman Begins is a great example where you had a series of Batman movies. A lot of people agree that it’s by far the best Batman movie. They are really excited. They are going to put some serious resources behind it.
