Talking to OXM, Digital Extremes vice president of publishing Meredith Braun said it would not make sense to not consider the Xbox One when it comes to bringing the upcoming PS4/PC free-to-play squad shooter, Warframe, to the platform:
We’re happy to see Microsoft shift its attitude on independent development for their new system. We’d be silly not to consider Warframe for Xbox One now. The system itself will be awesome and now the landscape of games that it supports has just become limitless. Exciting times.
This sounded like a much different response from the one Braun gave the previous week, where the vice president didn’t sound as upbeat about things:
We would love to see Warframe on Xbox One, the ball is in Microsoft’s court with regards to allowing titles on their system that come from an independent developer and not an established publisher.
It seems like Microsoft’s self-publishing agenda for the Xbox One will pay dividends, but we’ll learn more at Gamescom.
