Legendary Entertainment and Herbert Properties LLC have reached a multi-year licensing agreement with Gale Force Nine. The award-winning game publisher is now set to bring the beloved sci-fi franchise Dune to the world of tabletop gaming.

“Gale Force Nine has consistently demonstrated a skill and passion for building successful tabletop game series alongside category leading partners and we are thrilled to announce this exciting addition to the Dune licensing program,” said Jamie Kampel, Vice President of Licensing & Partnerships for Legendary. “Legendary looks forward to a fun and meaningful contribution to this revered legacy property.”

The agreement calls for Gale Force Nine to produce original tabletop games drawing from the full scope of the Dune franchise — spanning the many publications from Frank Herbert, Brian Herbert, and Kevin J. Anderson — along with multiple direct tie-ins with Legendary’s highly anticipated film from director Denis Villeneuve.

“This is only the beginning of our big plans in tabletop for this captivating franchise,” says John Paul Brisigotti, CEO of Gale Force Nine. “Dune is a rich and wonderful universe, and we expect to produce an equally expansive and inspired line of games for years to come.”

The full range of tabletop games, including board and miniatures games are slated to hit the market just prior to Legendary’s theatrical release of DUNE in 2020. In addition, Gale Force Nine plans to align with other game companies on numerous categories and formats in the future.

“With this master license, we are excited to collaborate with our peers and leverage their unique expertise to realize a complete spectrum of game types and authentic experiences,” continues
Brisigotti. Slated for late 2019, their first collaboration is a tabletop role-playing game from Modiphius, publisher of celebrated games such as Star Trek Adventures, Fallout: Wasteland Warfare, Conan, Mutant Chronicles, Achtung! Cthulhu, and Tales from the Loop.

The Legendary-Gale Force Nine licensing deal was brokered by Joe LeFavi of Genuine Entertainment, who will manage the Dune license on behalf of GF9 and facilitate ongoing business development alongside Brisigotti.
