During its annual TennoCon event, Warframe creator Digital Extremes announced that it was creating a second MMO, the fantasy-based Soulframe.
Warframe is a free-to-play third-person action-based MMO that launched in 2013 and has grown in popularity thanks to a steady stream of new content. It’s also available on a wide range of platforms, including PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, and PC.
For Soulframe, Geoff Crookes and Steve Sinclair lead the new team. Rebecca Ford, formerly Director of Live Operations and Community at Digital Extreme, is now Creative Director of Warframe. Ford also provides the voice of Lotus, the character that guides players through Warframe.
Although a new game is coming, Warframe isn’t slowing down. The MMO is getting a major update with The Duviri Paradox, which introduces rogue-like elements to the game in a new open-world environment that creatively plays with color.
Fantasy is familiar ground for the MMO space, but Digital Extremes has a built-in fanbase thanks to years of strong support for Warframe. Soulframe’s pairing with Digital Extremes and Warframe already gives it a decent head start.
