Sharp-eyed readers caught some interesting information in Digital Extremes’ latest company report.
The Warframe developer slipped in a line that it was working on a “free-to-play action MMO” that is not (it should be noted) the now-canceled Amazing Eternals. This new title is unnamed but should be going into closed alpha testing this year. The company hopes to release it some time in 2018.
The studio reported that Warframe picked up 3.6 million new players in the first half of 2017 (31.8M registered total), with the current monthly active users for the game sitting at 2.2 million. This report was made prior to Plains of Eidolon’s release.
Digital Extremes also expressed confidence in the online scene: “Multiplayer online games and the multiplayer mode in traditional single-player games have become the most important niche markets in the gaming industry.”
