Warframe developers weighing up potential for cross-platform gameplay on PS4 and PC

New, 10 comments

Warframe developer Digital Extremes is open to allowing cross-platform play between PC versions and PlayStation 4 version of the free-to-play shooter, associate producer Pat Kudirka told Polygon.

"The technology is there," said Kudirka, acknowledging titles such as CCP's Dust 514 that allow players across console systems to interact with PC users in a persistent world. "It's definitely a possibility."

"It's really up to Sony. The technology is there and I know the developers like the idea," he continued. The publisher came to Digital Extremes after seeing its success as a free-to-play PC title available through Steam, says Kudirka. While the studio retains all creative freedom, major technical decisions are in the hands of the publisher.

Similarly, the studio is not opposed to making the title available to the rival Xbox One system; however, Warframe remains a PS4 console exclusive for now, he says.

Warframe is a cooperative third-person shooter where players take on the role of ancient warriors who have awoken from cryosleep and find themselves in the centre of a war. The title will be available as a launch title for PlayStation 4 this holiday.
