Today we announced some huge news – Warframe is going to be a Launch Title for the PlayStation 4! Yes, our little dream project that was in Closed Beta 8 months ago, Open Beta 3 months ago, and now will be launching on a next-generation console.
Our players made this possible... your support, passion and dedication to Warframe. When Sony reached out to us we realized our players had opened up paths we never thought we would see as an independent developer.
We’ve always been a company that had a few projects on the go. As other projects have ended, and we have seen Warframe grow, we have decided to dedicate every resource we have as a company to making Warframe live up to its potential. That means many new minds and fingers have joined the team, eager to add to Warframe.
All the faces you’ve come to know remain dedicated to this project, the PS4 team is made of new faces that we hope to introduce everyone to in the coming months.
We can’t say much more now because we’re sworn to Sony Secrecy, but we will show what we can about the progress of PS4 Warframe over the coming months.
Next week, a handful of us will be going to E3 to generate excitement about this, but it’ll be business as usual back at home (aka fixing RNG and addressing the needs of our players)!
We will inform you every step of the way, Tenno!

The new video isn't up yet, damnit! I was hoping you guys would check it out at the same time. Some thoughts after reading responses:
-Account cross-over is technically possible (but Sony's call).
-They allowed some cross-platform play on PS3, it is possible (again Sony's call, also subject to update rhythm).
-PC is the 'lead' for development and update schedules. If PS4 release schedules are slower, PC will march ahead (they will not have to update in tandem).
-PS4 seems awesome so far.
-PC is awesome. It is our lifeblood.
-I spent a huge chunk of the day today in the 'season one' Warframe story meeting, it is definitely coming and its great (and hints are in the new trailer!).
-We're doing this because its a chance to grow into a different type of market. It definitely creates more problems, I agree, but it will only make the game stronger for all platforms.
Edit 3: Check out the latest Trailer released today as well!
