Gale Force Nine and Modiphius announced this week that they are going to be working on a range of tabletop games for Frank Herbert's well-renowned Sci-Fi series, DUNE. This will all begin with a role-playing game helmed by Modiphius.

Modiphius will be working with Gale Force Nine on this project with a release window of 2019. Whether this game will come to fruition through Kickstarter or not just yet I don't know but it would be fascinating to see what kind of world Modiphius could bring us into.

They have already done some great work with Conan, Star Trek and Infinity and it makes sense for them to be the ones running the show for another licensed role-playing game.

Gale Force Nine will then be in charge of creating board games and miniatures games for the world of DUNE ahead of the release of the new movie which arrives in 2020. Denis Villeneuve of Blade Runner 2049 will be bringing this new take on the Sci-Fi world to the silver screen and I can't wait to see what he does!

We've talked many times about how DUNE would be the perfect candidate for a tabletop game and it seems like now is as good a time as any with the coming film release.

What game ideas do you have for the world of DUNE?
