Other Prime features: TBD

For more information on prime warframes, check the Warframe Release and Prime Log.




Warframes in Development:

  • Khora, the crazy kavat lady (Devstream 100, Devstream 101)
    • Summons a Kavat companion via skils. TBD if she can use a companion alongside this ability – Devstream 100.
    • Exalted whip weapon.
    • Dynamic damage type split between Impact, Puncture, Slash (similar to how Chroma can pick an element). Your choice will affect your appearance. Possible that the IPS choice will be an ability key similar to Ivara’s Quiver and Vauban’s Minelayer.
    • Quest is being worked on still.


General Adjustments / Changes (not full reworks):

  • Nothing new to share at this time.

Upcoming Augments:

Note: Comments made on Devstream 97 suggest the Design Council will have less influence in the future of Augment mods being created.

  • Nothing new to share at this time.



Upcoming Weapon(s):

  • Two-Handed Nikana
  • Procedurally generated Sentient/Focus-related weapons  (2016 PAX East Panel, Twitter)
    • Planned to come with the Sentient location at some point in the future. (Devstream 100)
    • Even still in development as of the TennoCon 2017 – Developer Art Panel and suggested to be related to the Sentient Outpost concepts.
    • Still in development as of Devstream 85. It will be a new class of weapon which still uses an ammo system. Damage with this weapon is meant to be rewarding for skillful play.
    • Still in early concept stages. Images shown below (combined with upcoming Sentient enemy design)

Reworks and Changes:

  • The early Beta weapons Lato and Braton Vandal variants might make a return, but no ETA was given. (Devstream 77, Devstream 94)



  • Nothing new to share at this time



Kubrows and Kavats

  • Nothing new to share at this time.


  • Nothing new to share at this time.


  • Universal Vacuum has brought about the need to review all companion options. This will potentially lead to a Pets 2.0 system. (Devstream 101)



Set Mods

Outdated Mods

  • Nothing new to share at this time.

Syndicate Augments

  • Warframes
  • Weapons

Arcane Enhancements

Nothing new to share at this time. “There hasn’t been a lot of talk about Arcanes in a very long time.” (TennoCon 2017 – Developer Art Panel)

Potential “rework” in store for the Plains of Eidolon release. (Devstream 97) The “Arcanes” referenced in this devstream was a placeholder term for Magus, Virtuos, and Exodia. No changes came to existing Arcane Enhancements with the update.



  • Umbra is planned for 2018. (Devstream 101)
  • A new teaser cinematic was shown at TennoLIVE 2017: Warframe – The Sacrifice Teaser. No additional details were provided.
  • Warframe China received Excalibur Umbra Prime whereas the global release of Warframe will receive Excalibur Umbra (non-prime). (Devstream 58)
  • Only confirmed that Excalibur Umbra is coming to the global build. Everything else is still TBD (Devstream 61) Considered to be Coming Soon™
  • The Umbra reveal is intended to be on par with the Focus System reveal. DE does not want to give away any more information than necessary, but it is currently being created and not just a concept at this point. (Devstream 74)
  • There will be a third quest following The War Within which will feature/unveil the Umbra and provide a deeper exploration of what the warframes are. (Devstream 79)
  • Acknowledged on Devstream 85 (2), but no new information has been shared at this time.




Mission Builder

  • DE has an open thread taking suggestions for mission ideas on the Official Forums.


  • Eidolon Hunting matchmaking is being worked on. (Devstream 101)
  • There are plans to expand landscapes to new locations in the future. Vague mentions of this were made on Devstream 101, though they have also teased this on other Devstreams.


  • Trial mission design is on hold until further notice (Devstream 75, Tenno Live 2016)
    • Content from the trials, such as tiles and parkour objectives, can be expected to make their way into standard missions in the future, however. Note: Infested Salvage, a new mission type in Update 19.5, plays very similarly to The Jordas Verdict Stage 1 Decoding.


  • Nothing new to share at this time.

Relics & Fissures

  • Nothing new to share at this time.

Standard Missions

  • DE is exploring options to draw players to the Kuva Fortress. Possibly a new lore oriented drop related to an upcoming new character. (Devstream 85, Devstream 85) Two new stances habe been added already: Sovereign Outcast for the Tonfa weapon class from Heavy Kuva Gunners, Cyclone Kraken for the Machete weapon class from Exterminate bonus caches. Synthula alerts are only generated on this node as well.

Archwing Missions

  • Nothing new to share at this time.

Dark Sectors

It has been over a year since the last we’ve heard about Dark Sectors. This section is Coming Soon™ territory.

  • Still in development as of Devstream 86. Resembles an RTS with indirect PvP, but still competitive in nature.
  • The return of Dark Sectors will place a greater emphasis on exploration and offer a way for your Clan to work together and expand. The Specters (introduced in Specters of the Rail) may also player a role in the Dark Sectors. (Devstream 77)
  • Dark Sector rework is in progress (Devstream 69)
    • It will be a communal activity rather than a PvP one. No longer contested locations. (Devstream 71)


  • An unexplained event is on the way which will feature “proto series” skin rewards for weapons. (Devstream 97)
  • DE is planning to return to the method of using events to introduce and test new content (similar to the Survival Weekend Event). After the event is over, DE will take a bit of time to fine-tune it and then reintroduce it as a standard gameplay mode in the future. (Devstream 81) Recent examples include:
    • The Index Preview paved the way for The Index (a Corpus variant of Rathuum, aka Arena mission) which was permanently added in Update 19.5.
    • The Pacifism Defect introduced the Evacuation game mode which was permanently added in Update 21.
    • The Ambulas Assassination rework was introduced in Operation: Ambulas Reborn (Update 20.4) and remained as a permanent change.
  • DE plans to make events happen more often in the future. (2016 PAX East Panel, Devstream 73) Note: There have been events since both of these points, but not at a regular frequency as implied.


  • Nothing new to share at this time.


  • A Stalker gameplay mode is still being experimented with, but there are not any concrete plans to deploy it as of yet. (Devstream 96)
    • This feature was demo’d at TennoCon 2017 off camera – players could assume control of the Stalker and invade another player’s mission. Abilities are restricted and you are given the Stalker’s weapons to work with. This feature is technically possible on the live version of the game, but can only be accessed through a developer version of the game. That is to say, they were invading actual players who were not at TennoCon.
    • Gameplay was also shown off on Prime Time #173.
  • Player ships with mission capabilities. The goal is to allow players in a squad to weave in and out of Archwing for gameplay with a “team ship” for missions. The design is inspired by Solar Rails with the intent to allow players to travel through the system; squads can form up on these ships then go off on a mission. The ship has a modular feature which allows it to change form for travel and for combat. (TennoCon 2017 – Developer Art Panel)
    • It is clarified later in the stream that these are ships planned for use at a Clan level and reaffirmed that they will be related to Dark Sectors, though it is uncertain just how connected they are at this point. (TennoCon 2017 – Developer Art Panel)



Dynamic Weather

  • Dynamic weather is coming to the Plains of Eidolon Landscape. (Devstream 101) Rain and adjustments to rain have been implemented.


Sentient Outposts

  • Sentient Outpost concepts were shown at the TennoCon 2017 Art Panel. The concept was a Sentient Cathedral of sorts. The gameplay version will be likely focused on the first Sentient outpost used on the path to the Tau system. The scale of these outposts will be massive and incorporate themes of how the Sentients adapt to danger by rebuilding themselves. (TennoCon 2017 – Developer Art Panel)


HDR Support

  • Nothing new to share at this time.


Under-The-Hood Changes

  • Nothing new to share at this time.


Enemies and NPCs

Corpus Forces

  • New Corpus units are on the way. (Devstream 90) Possibly tied to upcoming Landscape expansions.

Grineer Forces

  • Nothing new to share at this time.

Infested Forces

  • Infested Eximus units will be receiving “weakpoints” which leave them invulnerable to damage until the weakpoints are destroyed. The higher the enemy level, the higher the chance of a weakpoint (or multiple weakpoints) appearing. (Devstream 87) Potentially scrapped or sent back to the drawing board.

Hunhow and the Sentients

  • Sentient colossus enemy: Eidolon. Only appears at night within the Plains of Eidolon. (TennoLIVE 2017) More variants are in development.
    • The “S-Class Teralyst” aka “Megalyst” is coming soon. (Devstream 101)
      • Features a new visual design with some variation on the original as well as new attacks.
    • A new Eidolon is under development. Implied to be coming to the Plains of Eidolon, the developers said they plan to add a flying component to the encounter. (Devstream 100)
  • Upcoming Carrier Sentient enemy. Deploys new Conculysts/Battlysts by absorbing the essence they disperse when destroyed and using that to empower a new unit. (Devstream 87)
  • Upcoming Exo-Suit Sentient enemy (2016 PAX East Panel)

Miscellaneous NPCs and Factions

  • Ballas was shown at the TennoCon 2017 Art Panel, described as the “entry point” of designing the Orokin society. (TennoCon 2017 – Developer Art Panel) Implemented in the Apostasy Prologue teaser quest.



The Dark Sector rework is in progress, but it will no longer be direct PvP. Refer to Gameplay – Missions above.


General Combat and Miscellaneous

Dedicated Servers – Volunteer System

  • Crowd-sourced dedicated server improvements are planned. They are currently limited to Windows operating systems and appears to require a full installation of Warframe. Pending the success of these servers it is possible to expand upon it in the future. (Devstream 73, Devstream 76, Devstream 77, Devstream 78, Devstream 81) These servers have been implemented, but sources will remain available on this page until further plans for PvE are unveiled.


  • Changes are coming to Shields in the near future (soon™). Digital Extremes is experimenting with the mechanic of Shield-Gating — a way to prevent excess damage from spilling over to health when shields are depleted. (Devstream 79)
    • The developer assigned to this task was pulled and the experiment was put on pause. It is still being worked on, but there is not an ETA available yet. (Devstream 81)
    • Still being worked on, but not yet ready for testing. (Devstream 86)
    • Shield-Gating did not accomplish the goal the developers had in mind while testing. They are exploring other options as well. (Devstream 100)


Cosmetics & Customization

Upcoming Warframe C&C

Alternate Helmets

  • Two new alternate helmets are on the way: One for Equinox and one for Octavia. (Devstream 892) Octavia’s alternate helmet was released with Octavia’s update, but the Equinox helmet has been indefinitely delayed due to a file corruption issue – Devstream 93.

Deluxe Skins


Upcoming Weapon C&C

Upcoming Event Skin Rewards

  • Though very vaguely described, an upcoming event will feature five new weapon skins (two of which were shown on stream). The skin theme is “proto series” – or more specifically, a throwback to more traditional weaponry as was available in the game Dark Sector. These skins will be tint-able as well. (Devstream 97)


Upcoming Companion C&C


  • Nothing new to share at this time.


  • Nothing new to share at this time.


  • Nothing new to share at this time.


Upcoming Operator C&C

Armor and Weapons

  • Nothing new to share at this time.


Upcoming Miscellaneous C&C

Orbiter Decorations

  • New decorations are coming for the Orbiter and possibly the Dojo. (Devstream 85) Some of these were leaked in Update 21, but quickly removed. More Orbiter decorations arrived with the Plains of Eidolon update.

Armor Customization for Warframes

  • Per-Item Accessory colorization options are confirmed to be on the way. (Tenno Live 2016, Devstream 80, Devstream 84) As it turns out, this had not been assigned as a task until Devstream 91. It may be limited to having separate options for just the syandana and all armor pieces share the same colors still. Confirmed on Devstream 92. Currently live, but only as a split between Syandanas and Armor.
  • This was a follow up to Mynki’s acknowledging statements in Devstream 72.


System Reworks / Overhauls

“Damage 3.0”

  • The development of the warframe Khora brought into question the importance of the physical status ailments and how they could be improved. Impact will scale by improving the stagger effect up to a ragdoll effect (with a few steps in between). Puncture will scale by “weakness” which reduce damage by 30% up to 90%. Slash will also be adjusted for scaling. This also brought into question what would happen over 100% Status Chance and how to make these scale. (Devstream 101)
    • The IPS percentage values on a weapon will determine the strength of these status procs as well.
    • Elemental damage is being looked at as well in regards to scaling. Blast and Electricity were explicitly mentioned on this stream.
  • Damage System changes are on the way, but DE is being cautious about implementing them all at once. (Devstream 79, Devstream 80). Note: Riven Mods are not likely part of this discussion… or at least don’t seem to be.
    • Changes are still planned, but no details have been shared at this point (Devstream 83).
    • Damage 3.0 will be placing a greater emphasis on re-balancing enemies rather than re-balancing weapons/mods. (Devstream 85)
    • Gameplay will still be oriented around the few against many, but not necessarily include AI overhauls for common enemy types. (Devstream 85)
  • Concerns with “must-have” mods are being discussed internally (Devstream 44 No longer the focus as of Devstream 85.

Focus Sledgehammer

  • There are plans to “take a sledgehammer” to the Focus system and get it up to speed with the new systems introduced with The War Within, but no details have been shared at this time. (Devstream 83)
    • Planned to be a priority for early 2017. (Devstream 85) As we’re nearing the fourth quarter of 2017, it’s safe to say it’s not on schedule.
  • Focus is being completely reworked. All accumulated Focus will be refunded, Focus will now be about the physical operator (as opposed to tying together the operator and warframe), and expand into “Warrior Mode” for the operator. (Devstream 98)
    • Focus has shifted from the “ghost version” of the operator to the physical operator and the rework will retain a small portion of that to accommodate for the small window of time players will have between The Second Dream and The War Within. The rest of the tree then unlocks after the latter quest, but it is a completely redone tree.
    • The developers also confirmed that Naramon’s Shadow Step and Zenurik’s Energy Overflow are scrapped. Lenses, the UI, and the concept of investing in a tree still remain, but everything about the perks is changing. The goal is to empower the operator in gameplay.

Keeping the Focus section in here for archival purposes.


Rewards and Progression Systems

 Mastery Rank

  • Nothing new to share at this time.



  • Dojo obstacle course updates are on the way with modular creation tools. It is in development right now and they plan to show off progress soon. (Devstream 101)
    • Previously mentioned (a very long time ago): Dojo Obstacle Course changes. Possibly modular creation tools for Clans to make their own. (Devstream 44, 2016 PAX Australia). Mentioned again more recently on Devstream 100.





Further details on the next iteration of Focus were shared. (Devstream 101)

  • Reduced the costs on many nodes by adjusting the curve at which all the costs are derived from. The top ends for all skills have been brought down
  • Capacity costs are still planned to be transformed into a universal pool.

The developers plan on reworking Focus (or at least iterate on 2.0 further). (Devstream 100)

  • Removing tree-specific Focus capacity and moving to one universal capacity for all schools. This way it’ll be easier to move between Schools, like the Way-Bound passives already offer.
  • The daily Focus Point cap is being removed and replaced with a curve. When you first start playing, you will receive a boost of Focus experience, with less being received the more that you farm. The point on the curve at which you receive diminishing returns will probably mirror the existing cap now. Instead of receiving no Focus points at all after this level, you’ll simply get less of them. This is an effective soft cap on your daily gains.
  • They are experimenting with the boosted Focus gain in a few ways as well:
    • Have the initial boost be tied to your Mastery Rank. The higher it is, the more you earn.
    • Playing a range of different mission types will add to this booster, encouraging diversity when gaining Focus points. You can play the same mission over and over if you want, but venturing into other nodes on the Star Chart will give you a bonus.
  • A refund similar to the Focus 2.0 launch will be used once again when these changes are ready.

Note: There has been no mention of adjustments to Convergence at this time.




Orbiter Systems

Daily Login Tribute / Daily Login Reward

  • The current model of a non-stop track to 700+ days is being remodeled into a choice-based system for 50-day tracks. (Devstream 100)
    •   Adding a new “Tracks” feature. After the initial 50 days of logins, you will be given the option to choose the track for your next milestone, taken from the existing milestone rewards (Zenistar, Primed Shred, etc.). After another 50 days (number still TBD), you will unlock the item and pick your next Track.

Orbiter Rooms and Functions

  • Helminth Cyst permanent removal is planned to arrive soon. Once the Syndicate Assassination/Salvation system is fully implemented there will be a new way to reinfect yourself. (Devstream 85, Devstream 85) Removal has been implemented. The Syndicate Assassination/Salvation system has been dropped or absorbed into the “Kingpin” system (still tracked here under “Nemesis”).



Replayable Quests

  • Replayable quests were planned for Update 19. (Devstream 74) Some replayable quests are now available, but not all.
  • They are still being worked on as of Devstream 81, but there is not an ETA for the widespread functionality.



VIP Assassination and Salvation systems implementing a system similar to the Shadow of Mordor Nemesis System will be implemented as a part of Syndicates (Devstream 80)

  • This system will also reveal the mystery behind the Infested door (and presumably the door opposite of it) on the Orbiter.
  • The enemies are individual to the player and designed to scale with your level. If you fail, the enemies become more powerful.
  • This new system will have the players make stakes for rewards: If you fail to accomplish the task, you will lose Syndicate standing.
  • It is intended for long-time players as another piece of the overall Warframe endgame (Devstream 81)

All of the above could potentially be scrapped as of Devstream 86.

  • Now being referred to as only “Syndicate Assassinations” by the developers. No mention of “Salvation” was made on the stream.
  • Will be a Clan-based system in the Dojo.
  • Procedurally generated enemy cells will be created for a Clan to chase after a kingpin by defeating its sergeants and lieutenants.
  • Rewards are still being worked on.

Now being referred to as “Enemy Cells.” (Devstream 87)

  • The closer you get to the kingpin at the head of an organization, the more they fight back against you. It is an evolved version of how the Stalker marks a target for defeating a boss and then attacks in another mission.
  • Clans will also be receiving a new “Rank” system in the near future which will impact your Clan’s options for Enemy Cells. The more Enemy Cells you take down, the more (core) structures you build in your Dojo (not decorations/hallways), the more research your Clan completes, the more your Clan’s Affinity/Rank will increase. The new rank system will retroactively be added for Clans which have already built/researched items. Most of this system is planned around group activity, but solo Ghost Clans were acknowledged.
  • A quick preview of the upcoming Clan Affinity System UI was shown on Devstream 89.
  • New unique enemies are being made as VIP targets for the Nemesis system. (Devstream 91)

Now being referred to as “Kingpins” as of Devstream 97.

  • Delayed due to Plains of Eidolon development. The system is working, but is caught at a content bottleneck”.

Still being worked on and is a part of the overall “Make Clans Great Again” campaign which has been pushed back to 2018. (Devstream 101)


Cetus and the Plains of Eidolon

  • Nothing new to share at this time.


User Interface and Account Management


Nothing new to share at this time.


Coming Soon™

For the things we’ve heard were coming up Soon™ or being worked on which have not been updated or spoken about in over a year.

  • Archwing missions might be added to the Sortie mission tables at a later date, after further polish is given to the Archwing game mode. (Devstream 86)
  • Further adjustments to the Sortie reward table are being considered. (Devstream 85)
  • The Shadow Stalker’s Acolytes may be making a return to the game in a new way. (Devstream 85) The Acolytes have returned several times already with no changes made – it is unlikely they will be adjusted along the lines of the comments on this devstream.
  • More Kavat species are planned but no information was shared on what they might be yet (Devstream 82).
  • HDR support is inbound for XB1 with plans to take it to as many platforms (Devstream 81)
    • Will likely arrive for consoles first and then make its way to PC (Devstream 85)
  • A “Mission Builder” is on the way for Clan Warlords soon™. You can select a mission type, tile set, enemy level, which enemies to populate the mission, a VIP to protect, and an NPC ally to spawn in at the start of the mission. This is just an early version of the idea and DE will probably consider balance concerns in regards to spawning in specific enemy types to create hyper-efficient farming missions. (Devstream 81)
    • Officially announced on Devstream 92 as being absorbed into the upcoming “Kingpin” (aka Nemesis) system.
  • The Lunaro Arcata is coming for PvE (Devstream 78)
    • Development on this weapon has been on hold for a while now. There is not an ETA for its arrival or when development will resume. (Devstream 88)
    • This weapon utilizes the Lunaro ball by launching it at enemies to deal damage. It is considered a new school of throwing weapon (no comment was made on stances). You attack enemies by throwing the ball or can use shoulder checks and tackles while you’re carrying the ball.
  • Archwing exploration-based mission was being worked at one point, but not implemented because it was not “compelling” (Devstream 75)
  • Environmental Hazards 2.0: Rather than being random mission variants you cannot plan for, environmental hazards will become temporarily active on a node and display information when selecting a mission so that players can prepare their loadouts for the mission. (Devstream 73)
  • Mods like Combustion Beam are being worked on right now were being considered to have scaling benefits as opposed to flat bonuses. (Devstream 72) New mods have been introduced to the game which offer some scaling, but not as described on this Devstream.
  • * New, larger Archwing enemies (Devstream 71)
    • Confirmed privately that this has not been progressed on since concepts.
  • * Adjustments to Bleedout (Devstream 70)
    • Confirmed privately that no other changes are expected. An option to expedite the timer and consume a revive has been added, though.
  • * Improvements to Warframe scaling (Devstream 69)
    • Short list of changes since:
      • Mag’s rework removed the scaling mechanics based on enemy stats.
      • Original rework plans shared for Volt included scaling based on enemy level, but was not implemented as such.
      • Nidus’ abilities have a synergistic scaling, but not based on enemy stats.
      • Octavia has some form of scaling with Mallet based on enemy damage dealt to it.
      • Limbo’s rework has scaling based on enemy stats.
    • Confirmed privately that this is still being worked on.
  • Zephyr ZephyrIcon Deluxe Skin (Devstream 67, Devstream 67 Official Overview). Shown below on the left is the original display. The images to its right are new versions as of Devstream 79 – the energy wings glow on performing bullet jumps and using abilities.
  • Stance Mod acquisition methods are being experimented with, but nothing is set in stone yet. (Devstream 67)
    • New methods have been brought in with The Silver Grove update for select stances, but not to the extent discussed in this Devstream.
  • Sortie token system (Devstream 66Note: Three iterations have been made to the Sortie reward pools. Tokens might not be off the table, but not likely to come.
  • * Private Chat Channels (Devstream 61) and further chat improvements (Devstream 65) are planned. Images of a mock-up are shown on DS61 while DS65 announced plans to launch the changes in Update 19. Note: Some more improvements arrived with the Specters of the Rail update, but not the full scope as described on those Devstreams.
    • Confirmed privately to be on hold at the moment.
  • Immortal skins are planned for all new warframes (Devstream 63)
    • No source, but was privately confirmed to no longer be on the docket… and then a “new lease on life”! More details to follow soon™.
  • Mastery Rank Assignments: The requirements of MR on various gear will be adjusted. (Devstream 59) Note: Minor adjustments were made in Update 20.
  • Player-created quests (Tenno Live 2014)
  • Nightmare version of The Jordas Verdict (Devstream 50)
    • As mentioned elsewhere on this page, further Trial development is currently on indefinite hold.
  • Nef Anyo (Devstream 51, Official Devstream 51 Overview) are in development.
    • Still in progress, but not soon. (Devstream 85)
    • Delayed even further due to Plains of Eidolon. (Devstream 97)
    • Planned to be the next big Corpus boss fight / update (Tenno Live 2016) Proven not to be the case – The Raptor was reworked first and then Ambulas.
    • Nef Anyo model(s) (updated from Devstream 87):
  • Dagger rework was mentioned along the lines of the Shotgun and Sniper reworks (Devstream 50)
    • Still a possibility, but expect another type of blade to see some work done first.
  • * Adjustable UI which allows players to resize UI elements individually. (Devstream 23)

Items with an asterisk (*) at the beginning have been privately confirmed to no longer be in development. Unfortunately, I cannot provide a source for these claims.



For the things that were mentioned in Devstreams and other official sources but not expanded upon to a concrete degree. More than a “yup” but less than “we’re working on it right now” and generally reserved for less intensive tasks.

  • The Community team is pushing for the ability to transmute Riven Mods. (Devstream 101)
  • Improvements to the compression methods for databasing which will alleviate burden from loadouts and customization. (Devstream 97)
  • Magnetic damage being revisted so that the energy-wiping effect will have some affect on enemies. (Devstream 97)
    • While this change did not come as expected, Magnetic procs against players are now over time rather than instant Energy wiping. Adjusted in Update 22.
  • The animation team wants to get around to completing a Landing Ship to Orbiter docking animation. (TennoCon 2017 – Developer Art Panel)
  • The developers are considering allowing the use of the old Arcane Helmet effects with different skins. (TennoCon 2017 – Developer Art Panel)
    • Note: This is not something the art team would be working on. Consider this an acknowledgment of the request, not a promise that the feature will come.
  • Alert state modification for enemies in Captura (and possibly Simulacrum). (Devstream 92) Some improvements arrived with Update 21.1.
  • Lore expansion for the ‘creator of all mods’ behind the Riven Mods. You can see the current proof-of-concept here: Official Website. This page was launched with The War Within update, but there has not been an expansion upon it. Steve hopes to tackle it in the future. (Devstream 92)
  • MOA companion for players. (Devstream 92)
  • More Prisma weapons, but with more uniqueness. (Devstream 92)
  • Operator Cosmetic customization slots (i.e. A, B, C). (Devstream 92)
  • New incentives to go back to Earth. (Devstream 91) So far the only carrot added has been the Forgotten Rare Containers and the new Captura scenes within them.
  • Zephyr rework. (Devstream 90)
  • Rebuilding Relays as a community-wide event. (Devstream 90)
  • The return of wall running is something the developers want to get to. (Devstream 90)
  • Cloth physics for Volt. (Devstream 88)
  • The “Chroma” unit from Dark Sector may be added as a stealth-focused enemy in the near future. (Devstream 87)
  • Further gameplay options in light of The War Within for the new Transference system are being considered and experimented with, but nothing is finalized yet (Devstream 83)
  • Animation for and unlocking more areas for the Operator are on the way (Devstream 83) Note: The Operator can perform some emotes.
  • Improvements to Kavat Genetic Code acquisitions are being considered (Devstream 81) Note: New Alert missions with Genetic Codes were added.
  • Dojo 2.0 is still planned, but not the main focus of development right now (2016 PAX West) Note: This may have been intended to be more about Clans in general and the Clan Affinity system added in Update 20.
  • Peculiar Mods – No official stream available, just a Periscope stream – PAX East 2017. Around 47:36 here: Steve’s Periscope. Likely that these were scrapped or changed into the Set Mods shown at TennoCon 2017.
  • Re-assigning color values for Chroma’s elemental affinity energy color options (2016 PAX East Panel)
    • Confirmed privately to not have been put on the docket.



In regards to complaints about spoilers: If you’re on a news page trying to get up-to-date information about what is currently in development, you’ve actively sought out spoilers.
