Did Warcraft waited to see how Hobbit would do in box office? Can't Post

Duncan Jones (Moon and Source Code; two great indie flicks), son of Ziggy Stardust himself, is officially confirmed to direct Warcraft movie with a 2015 release date. After about 6 years of back and forth, rumors, directors on and off, more rumors... It all came together. Probably the richest world in all of gaming, world of man, orcs, night elves and undead is coming on screen.

My quetion: How come they were able to pull it now? I think they watched closely how Hobbit would perform and then picked to release the film right after Hobbit is done (Hobbit - summer (or winter) 2014, Warcraft - 2015).
I love Warcraft (and Starcraft and Diablo) almost as much as I love LOTR universe but this feels to me like: "ok, we have something similar to Hobbit, lets wait for crowd response and box office numbers, ok they are great, lets release our movie just after their ends and ride on a wave a little bit".

I just hope they don't f*** it up. I'm really attached to those games (well to RTS not online multiplayer ones).
