Legendary have pruchased the rights to making a Dune Movie and tv series.

Not sure if this includes board games but the fact that either legendary own the rights to the board games or that Dune is now being divided up into different licenses may mean a new Dune board game is a distinct possibility. The reason why nobody could get a hold of the Dune board game license prior weas because it was being sold as an entire package including movie etc..


FFG need to be on this asap.

Can't see how they could make a better game than Dune. Rex loses a lot in the translation. You are hoping FFG can swing a deal to remake a themed Dune?

I, for one, would be interested to see if a new game can be pushed out.

Thinking out loud:
Since 1979 (when Dune was published), there have been several mechanics that became popular that may be a base for a new Dune game. Since I'm by no means an expert in this hobby, deck building as a mechanic comes to mind.

I don't know if they can make a BETTER game than Dune, but there are lots of games that could be made and set in the Dune milieu that could be really good.

I'd love to see a SW:R type game set on Arrakis, for example.

FFG originally intended to redo Dune but couldnt obtain the Dune license without having purchase the whole license which is to costly for a board game manufacturer. Hence why they rethemed it REX. Now however Dune is a distinct possibility.

It could be interesting if sub-letting just the game license is cheaper?
