Massively OP’s not-so-serious end-of-the-year awards continue today with our blooper award for Sneakiest MMO soft launch. And the winner is…
A couple of months ago, we’re sitting in work chat when someone – I think it was MJ – suddenly asks whether anybody knows when exactly Warframe launched. I laughed because everybody knows Warframe has been launched for years, right? Only… no. Open beta launched March 25, 2013, and that was it. It’s never technically left open beta, in spite of being in a basically done state for four and a half years, launching multiple expansions, winning awards, and even hosting fan conventions.
Soft launched. It’s time. We’re calling it.
