Other notes:

  • Predictions in no particular order for #17:
    • It is likely we would see Oberon next if we follow the sequential MMFF pattern and priority of release date.
    • Hydroid and Limbo are next on the chronological release list after Banshee.
    • It’s possible to see another chronological skip in favor of a more popular release, but that is typically done in the Winter and Summer releases. If so, Limbo or Chroma would make the most sense as Inaros and Nidus are too new. Popularity for male warframes is heavily skewed towards the ones that are already primed.
  • Umbra releases may affect future Prime releases.
