Warframe release order: Past and upcoming regular and Prime Warframes

In this post will find the complete Warframe Prime release order timeline, starting from the first one, and some speculation about the upcoming Prime release order. Excalibur Prime was the first Prime Warframe released back in 2012, and the latest one is Gara Prime, released on May 25, 2021.

What is the next Prime Warframe?

The next Prime Warframe to be released is Khora Prime and it is expected in Spring 2022.

Upcoming Warframe Prime Release Schedule

Warframe Primes are released in sequences of two females followed by two males. We had two females so far in 2021, so the upcoming two will be males. Based on the existing intervals, we can only speculate on the release dates; there is a gap of a little over three months between each Warframe Prime release. Also, there has never been a Warframe Prime release in January.

Since Gara Prime came out on May 25th, 2021, the next Prime Warframe may be released in early September, leaving just enough time for a fourth Prime release in late December 2021.

So I'm only speculating here, but it is quite possible that we can get three Prime Warframes in 2022 and four more in 2023. I have no idea about the validity of the upcoming release order, but it seems to be around a lot.

How many Warframes are there?

There are 49 regular Warframes and 35 Prime versions of those Warframes to choose from, making it 84 Warframes.

What's the difference between regular and Prime Warframes?

You can build both Prime and regular Warframes yourself, but the difference is that Prime Warframe part components are harder to get and require you to use Relics on Fissure missions.

In terms of performance Prime Warframes have some advantages over regular ones:

  • Prime Warframes come with higher base stats. The base stats in Warframe are Health, Armor, Energy, Shields, and Sprint Speed. A Prime Warframe will have a higher value in three of the above stats compared to a standard Warframe
  • Prime Warframes come with 1-2 extra mod polarities.
  • Prime Warframes have an extra passive skill in Void missions.

Other than these differences, Prime Warframes require a higher Master Rank, while they come with a much shinier (and fantastic) appearance compared to the basic versions.
