The Daily Grind: Will Dune Awakening miss the popularity boost from the movies?


Timing, as they say, is everything — and time doesn’t seem to be on Dune Awakening’s side, at least if Funcom wanted to get a huge cross-promotional bump from the recent two movies.

I mean, it’s entirely possible that more Dune movies will be made or that the first two will be fondly remembered over the next decade, but it’s also possible that the zeitgeist interest in Dune is a momentary blip that’ll soon subside back into the geeky fringes by the time this survival MMO sees the light of day.

What do you think? Did Funcom miss the boat entirely by not having Dune Awakening ready to go in time for the movies, or is it possible this is the start of a Dune renaissance that’ll end up lifting the game to even greater heights?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
