The story of Warframe has been five years in the making but the story of Digital Extremes has been going on a lot longer than that. Much like our Rocket League series, one of the most attractive things about this project was being able to talk about the development of the early days of the Unreal franchise. From there we dive into the changing face of game development work-for-hire, and ultimately end on the incredible story of Warframe.
