Sony has no incentive to let people out of their platform.

The best you can hope for is cross-progression, which Steve wants, but no details on when (or if) it will ever happen.

Pretty much you can play again anytime you want, but account transfers are not going to happen again. At least that is what DE has said so far. Last word from anyone on the team has been then when they have something to say about cross save/play they will say something. Before that Steve indicated that it was on the back burner. I would not hold your breath.

@OP: At this rate, sadly probably never. Because cross-anything is very unlikely to happen in warframe. At least in foreseeable future.

There's no hold up because there are nothing to hold. Cross-whatever is not a thing anymore.

The issue is the console companies, they don't want to implement it because they know that no one will transfer to console versions, only to PC which loses them money.

Except that isn't true anymore. There are even mobile games with some level of cross-progression. Sony even announced before cross-progression for games released on mulltiple platforms last year... however, that's left on a publisher basis. 

It costs DE money to make it a feature, and DE themselves stated in the past it may not provide a return on investment. Considering they said "a" person, suggesting one, was working on it when they mentioned this, it should be a very clear indicator that this is not a priority for DE.

I'm pretty sure these other devs did not cut deals with Sony 7 years ago, and Sony did not support them with PS+ offers and other cross-promotion support.  The bottom line is that all platform owners take a cut of any Platinum purchased on their platform.  The last thing they want is for gamers to start gaming the system and start exploiting deals on one side and profiting off the other.  For example, due to how Discount Vouchers work differently from PC to platforms, on average Platinum is cheaper on PCs than consoles.  Before they enable Cross Play, they would first have to resolve this part of the economy or no reasonable person would buy Platinum on consoles anymore.

Would you accept it if, as part of the transfer, everything you currently own becomes untradeable and you lose all your current Platinum (meaning you should spend it all first)?  IMO, this is the most convincing way to appease platform owners as you would not be able to affect the new platform's economy in any way.  Although, this could still be a method to sell accounts, so there needs to be another safeguard to prevent that...

I would love for the DEVS to add cross-platform/cross-save to the PC from Xbox. Myself along with possible Millions of players have 500+ hours on this game on xbox and would love to play on pc 

a search for the 1000 other posts about this and DE's stance would have benefitted you on this.

Ok so I'm a PC ps4 player. I have about 3 ich years on ps4 and IV had an amazing time on warframe I love the game. I'm younge so I just played on what I had the ps4 but I got older started working a job and then moved to PC because all my friends are there. And once I also moved to PC I tried the game there and in my opinion it just felt really nice the controles (outside of how u use abilitys because I prefer controlee for that) just felt smooth and everything just looked better on my computer and IV put a good amount of time and a bit of money because I couldn't be bothered to grind for something I got fair and square 3 years ago on my PC account. And with all these new updates I want to play again but I can't cuz if they eventually do add cross save in the next year or 2 years all that new progress on PC well be gone cuz I'll switch back to my old account because it will take me sooooooo long to farm what I have on there and I know I won't Catch up even if I play like I did on ps4. So what if de makes not just a cross save but a data merge where you can combine 2 existing accounts. Or what would be easier if you could move all items from one to another obviously make this a one time thing that deletes the account that your transferring the items from so you don't get people trying to sell accounts but the way it would work is prime warframe and weapones well transfer over as parts so u get all the bps and stuff on your main that or u just have more built warframe either or but the BP would also be good give a little bost to the market in terms of items to sell sence everyone's going to have dupes or just slot of duckets now. But ya sorry I ranted on but I have so much passion for this game it's one of my tope games and I want to see what y'all thing if de does do cross save if it be good or bad idea to transfer or merge account info for players llike me. I have hope they add it and thats why I'm stuck with what's the point of playing if I lose my progress I made in new content thats going to get over writen by old (not to say I wouldn't mind really doing story stuff just the loot I want to keep cuz IV dropped money on PC) love to see what y'all think

Hi,

It's been a long time that i play Warframe on my PS4, but i started moving to PC cause my PS4 is dead.

I DON'T wanna create a new account and restart, is there a way to have my PS4 account to PC ??

And if this is not possible, DE should ABSOLUTLY make a cross-save !!

Not yet and likely not for a while. If you keep the same gamertag you will still have all of your acquired content as its all tied to that so if getting another PS4 or upgrading to a PS5 is an option you'll be OK. 

But migration hasn't been a thing for a while.

Here comes the cross save requests, debate again 🤣

No. This is routinely suggested.

Can you make crossplay? Other Games that names I dont call now have it too and its possible. You just need to make pc players have to wait too or work faster!?

it will have more open groups and more members for clans and so on.

also on a name called call of .....

you can play pc and ps4 with one account so you can switch if u want anytime just login.

Other Developers can make crossplay too its possible there are some games so why not warframe?

we all pay them enough.

Think about it. You have all sorts of coding problems between each platform.  Legal issues with de, sony, microsoft, and Nintendo.  Server nightmares. Tennogen skins are another legal nightmare.

Then you have differences in patches. Pc is typically a month ahead in patches.

Crossplay will never happen. The best possibility is cross save. And even thats a tiny glimmer of hope.

Cross Save is another Option too.
