Digital Extremes Say They’d “Silly Not to Consider Warframe for Xbox One Now”

With Microsoft’s recent change of policies surrounding independent developers and their ability to self publish on the Xbox One, Warframe developers Digital Extremes are giving second thought to the idea of bringing their free-to-play, third-person shooter/action title to Microsoft’s next-generation platform.

Only a few days ago, the company’s stance towards the Xbox One was a much different one. Digital Extremes vice-president of publishing Meridith Braun said earlier that “the ball is in Microsoft’s court with regards to allowing titles on their system that come from an independent developer and not an established publisher.”

Currently, Warframe is on course to publish on the PlayStation 4 as a launch title later this year and is already available for download on the PC. However, post-reversal of Xbox One’s policies, Braun admits that it wouldn’t make sense to not consider bringing Warframe to the Xbox One.

Speaking to OXM, Braun said, “We’re happy to see Microsoft shift its attitude on independent development for their new system. We’d be silly not to consider Warframe for Xbox One now. The system itself will be awesome and now the landscape of games that it supports has just become limitless. Exciting times.”

We’re definitely excited to see Warframe potentially make it to the Xbox One. How about you?

Thanks, Pixel Enemy.

    • Magilla187

      exactly what i was thinking i would love to see minecraft on sony platforms imagine how much the PS vita would benefit from getting some type of crazy DLC for minecraft or a PS VITA/MINECRAFT bundle

      • DanDustEmOff

        Depend who is developing Minecraft for the PS. The Xbox version is done by 4j, it’s got nothing on the PC version.

  • Chad Eugene Rash

    Game is alright.

    • TheChunkyPotato

      Oh my god, any thing right microsoft does you are just waiting there to find a way to bash them. I’ve seen many of your posts and you sir are an extreme fanboy.

      • Chad Eugene Rash

        First off where in my post do I bash Microsoft? Second I own both current generation consoles yet I’m a fanboy. Your the ignorance that plagues this world & why gamers are hated so much. You don’t think you just spew random shit out of your mouth to feel good about your pathetic life. Have any of you actually played Warframe? Signs point to no. Its a 3rd person 4 player coop shooter & nothing more.

        • TheChunkyPotato

          I’m not talking about warframe specifically. All I’m saying is that is the article said it would be a ps4 exclusive, you would say something along the lines of “great this game is amazing.” I’m not saying you will do that but the point is that you always have to put MIcrosoft down whenever they do something good.

          • bedeedomanium

            Cuz screwing their customers over with ridiculous policies is a gd thing even if they changed em? That’s like catching a robber, making him put the stuff back and letting him go.

        • Alex Melendez

          Just because you own both consoles doesn’t mean you’re not a FANBOY -_-

      • James Mulhall

        He just said the game is alright? While I don’t always agree with his posts, I don’t see why anyone would disagree with this one unless they’ve also played the game. He also didn’t say anything bad about Microsoft. Even though he does in other posts, their is no reason to bash this one.

    • DanDustEmOff

      From what I have seen it’s just a mediocre third person shooter.

  • WarHero

    I’m glad Microsoft is letting indie devs to self publish but I feel like there something more into it that people and even developers don’t know. I want to know if they’re TRULY keeping their words because good promises like these have some sort of dark corner, if this is not the case then I am happy for them.

    • WarBroh

      Theres always a last minute gotcha with MS, they can’t help themselves. Like the scorpion in that scorpion&toad fable

  • Vasidius

    This also means a higher chance of seeing DayZ for Xbox One. Awesome :D

    • Magilla187

      bigger chance is an understatement i can definitely see this happening for both next gen systems and thats just amazing everyone would be able to share the same experiences

      • WarBroh

        That’s okay, you have fun with the screaming Xbox kids

        • Magilla187

          Im buying a PS4 & GTX 760 what in the hell are you talking about ? im just happy for both next gen consoles

  • Billy

    nice

  • dieger

    i think we should start calling the xbox 1 “the xbox 180″ :p now its cool that MS is FINALLY getting it right. but why didn’t they announce this stuff at the xbox reveal event? WTF?

    • Just saying

      They thought they can force us on buying Xbox One with its DRM and that we’ll actually buy it and shut up. Sony on the other hand gave them a blow when they announced their policies and that my friend is the main reason why MS took the 180 road.

    • PuddingAuxRais1ns

      Microsoft can power a city with all of this backpedaling.

  • Bacon

    You missed ‘be’ out on the title. Not trying to be a d***, it just looks bad.

    • Just saying

      I actually agree with you. It looks wrong.

    • ReeceGators

      They’d silly not to consider

  • Joseph

    I love this news.

  • bedeedomanium

    I liked their old policies, show xbox for what it truly is, a piece of junk

  • bedeedomanium

    And no dayz for xbox, ps4 is more powerful so why should we be held back by a weaker system, Dsnt matter cuz i have it for pc but you xbox fans ruin all ps4 games cuz they gotta dumb it down for you

    • ReeceGators

      You realize xbox and ps4 have nearly identical power. I mean fuck Xbox is supposed to be able to use more RAM even if it is ddr3. Why dont you just leave Mp1st and go to IGN or some shit where you can gather and breed with all your other fuck-faced 12-year old Sony drones

      • WarBroh

        you first.

        • ReeceGators

          Sorry that dont like my “kind” over at IGN

          • bedeedomanium

            cuz I’m allowed to state my opinion, if you don’t like that you can leave, it’s already been proven that ps4 is 25% more powerful, dice devs even sais xbox will hols ps4 back due to the cost of making 3 seperate games. quit being arrogant cuz I hate your precious xbox

            • ReeceGators

              Well i hate your overrated ps3.5

            • bedeedomanium

              That’s all you got, lol thought you xbox cod guys had more up your sleeve than that

            • ReeceGators

              ew. just ew. Dont ever associate cod and I in the same sentence. Eugh. Cod. its like a bad taste on the tongue. Xbox dude yes, cod guy, fuck no. BF4 all the way. You disscust me

    • bedeedomanium
