According to the film's producer...
In an interview with IGN while promoting Godzilla in London, producer Thomas Tull revealed that Warcraft will focus on two tribes. Here are highlights:
On how Duncan Jones will make a better video game movie: "Doing a video game movie has not really been done well, and I think part of the reason for that is it's been done for the wrong reasons. If you simply say ‘How many people have played the game? How much money can we make?' You're doomed. You're doomed right off the start. Bringing a filmmaker like Duncan [Jones] onboard to distill that and bring the incredible cast onboard that he was able to get… we hope that when you see the first trailer for it, you're going to say ‘OK, this is not what I was expecting.' He's an incredibly exciting filmmaker."
On when the trailer may be revealed: "We show up every summer at Comic-Con – we really enjoy it, and the fans seem to enjoy taking a look at things, so I wouldn't be surprised."
On what the film will focus on: "With a great cast, there's a lot of folks to follow, so I'd look more in that direction because there's so many talented people working on it… We're very aware of the fact that in the mythology of Warcraft, there are two tribes – two big things to follow. We think you're going to get a chance to look at both."
