On the back of Tencent’s buyout of Warframe’s parent company, Leyou, the developers behind the game have assured that they will remain creatively independent.

The story starts in 2014 when Leyou purchased majority shares in Digital Extremes. As they explain, they’ve remained independent since that time. Tencent then bought Leyou making them the parent company to Digital Extremes.

To that then, Digital Extremes published a short post directly addressing what will happen to their independence writing,

“Yes, we will continue to create great content for Warframe and we will remain creatively independent. Our focus will remain on listening to you, our community, upgrading Warframe based on your feedback, and developing the kind of great stories, gameplay, and incredible new space ninja action you’ve come to expect from us. Tencent is well known for respecting the creative decisions and integrity of its studios, and for giving them the autonomy and independence to experiment, innovate and thrive.”
