While console gamers do get the Warfare updates the PC version of the hit free-to-play shooter, it’s usually a few weeks late. Well, that’s about to change with the upcoming expansion, Heart of Deimos, which is the first major Warframe update seeing a simultaneous release on all platforms.
This is a pretty big deal, as we mentioned already that console players typically have to wait two to three weeks before the release of an update due to the certification process. This means that console players are always lagging behind, though with Warframe it’s a bit more manageable as releases typically aren’t far off. While Heart of Deimos may suggest that future updates will follow the same release, that may not be entirely so as Digital Extremes made a brief comment about this.
In a closed pre-Tennocon 2020 stream that we took part in, we asked Digital Extreme’s Live Operation and Community Director Rebecca Ford concerning the matter of future game updates and their releases, here’s what she had to say.
MP1st: With Heart of Deimos releasing on all platforms at the same time, is this something we can expect to see more of, at the very least with bigger content updates?
Rebecca Ford: To be completely honest, I hope so and this will be an experiment that if it goes well would likely directly address that question moving forward. It’s difficult to make those decisions without a really strong test of the experiment, so ultimately however this goes will determine the answer to your question.
Speaking of Heart of Deimos, it’s set to come out later this year, and we have all the details straight from Tennocon right here.
Let’s hope that Digital Extremes gets good feedback from the community that the studio will consider releasing every update simultaneously on every platform moving forward.
