Is it an esport?

Sadly not. The focus of the game is very much co-op player vs environment, with the game’s “Conclave” PVP mode taking something of a back seat by comparison. That’s not to say the game isn’t popular, though. It’s been going fairly strong since release, and the hype surrounding Destiny 2 has had a bit of a knock-one effect to Warframe’s popularity, offering as it does a similar third-person co-op experience. But no, not an esport. Yet.
