What do you do when everyone tells you that your game will fail? How do you react? What do you change? Digital Extremes spoke openly about the origins of Warframe with PCGamer.com and Venture Beat in recent months, shedding light on how the game came to be what it is today. Emboldened by the success of a new wave of self-published games, Digital Extremes took the rejections from potential publishers in stride and tried their hand at self publishing. Four years later, Warframe is still going strong. Whether it was out of spite for their rejections or if it was unwavering confidence in the product, Digital Extremes has proven Warframe had the potential to not only survive, but flourish.
