Back in August, Gale Force Nine(GF9) announced that they had reached a multi-year licensing agreement with Legendary Entertainment and Herbert Properties, LLC to bring the expansive Dune sci-fi franchise to tabletop gaming, with plans to release several products, including board and miniatures games, just prior to the upcoming Dune theatrical release in 2020. However, there was no confirmation at that time that they had plans to reprint the classic Dune board game. Today’s sneak peek confirms the rumors that we will be getting a reprint of this much admired, long out-of-print, and difficult to find game that is a holy grail for many boardgamers.
Update March 15, 2019:
Original co-designers Peter Olotka and Bill Eberle have confirmed this news, with Mr Olotka saying on Twitter, “Yup DUNE returns better than ever.” Mr. Eberle has told us that the original designers are working on this project.
Update March 21, 2019:
Gale Force Nine's John-Paul Brisigotti confirmed this news on Game Trade Media, and said that the "classic game will be out in the summer, probably in August."
