(I have simply copied the contents to this thread and a direct link is available)

Warframe cross-save is the top priority after Empyrean – “I wish we had it right now”

December 12, 2019 An earlier version of this story referred to Warframe cross-play – a representative got in touch to say the developers misheard the question as referring to cross-save. Cross-play is on the radar, but the devs are focused on cross-save.

Warframe is available across every major platform, but it hasn’t hopped on the cross-play train in the way that other multi-platform hits have – heck, Minecraft just closed the platform circle earlier this week. The developers at Digital Extremes want to at least make cross-save a reality, and it seems that this is the next big project after the Warframe Empyrean release date.

Cross-save is a top priority after Empyrean releases, as Digital Extremes’ Rebecca Ford says during a media Q&A. “If it’s not Railjack we’re working on, it’s definitely going to be [cross-save]. I wish we had it right now.” That’s definitely not a concrete roadmap toward cross-save, but it does suggest the devs are prioritising the feature.

Warframe offers some limited options to transfer characters between platforms, but that’s a long step away from cross-save. The possibilities of the feature are further limited by the fact that PC updates come much faster than their console counterparts. But with Warframe’s focus on PvE, if cross-save ever comes to cross-play we at least don’t have to worry about the competitive advantages of mouse and keyboard over controllers.

You can expect to something significant from Warframe among The Game Awards announcements this week, though we don’t know what the nature of that news will be. (Here’s hoping we’ll finally know exactly when Empyrean launches.) Regardless, the official site notes that you’ll be able to get a Glaxion Vandal drop for watching the show on Twitch.

Cross platforming may be possible from Console to Console but not Consoles with PC as the build on PC is always different and ahead of consoles. PC gets builds ahead of Consoles because it serves as test platform and a place for bugfixing before the build is sent for cert in Consoles.

For said reason there will never be Cross Platforming from PC to Consoles.

Maybe an additional way to put pressure on DE? DE never uses this kind of wording unless they are really sure they can deliver. Seems like other articles about warframe where the writer takes a loose phrase from DE and inflates it to make it seem flashy.

Unless this news comes from DE themselves I don't really trust it, tbh. We'll see in a few hours.

well that is the current system, with other like games getting cross saves and updates on all platforms simultaneously it may be that we could get that as well and wf would not have to go through as much a hassle with cert 

leading to a unified product across all deliverable platorms , id still say switch might not but it may be done in stages 

xbox to pc or xbox to ps for example is logical as xbox is trying to be a pc platform on win 10
