Warframe managed to set viewership records during the annual TennoCon this year. Hosted by Digital Extremes, TennoCon is an annual event that celebrates all things Warframe. During TennoCon 2019, at least 2 million combined hours of Warframe content was viewed across all streaming platforms, along with social media sites. In addition, more than 490,000 total concurrent viewers tuned in for TennoLive.

With TennoCon 2019, Warframe was able to solidify its milestone viewership as the sixth most concurrently viewed game on Twitch in 2019. In addition, the TennoLive stream became not only one of the most viewed game reveal shows of the year, but also the most watched broadcast in Warframe history.

In a press release, Digital Extremes Live Operations and Community Director Rebecca Ford said that Digital Extremes remains "continually humbled by the way our players support and grow TennoCon year after year.” Ford added that the "community is the heart and soul of Warframe. They are what inspires and drives us as developers, and we’re honored to have the opportunity to build the future of Warframe with such a passionate and dedicated community. We do this for our players."

This year, TennoCon hosted even more Warframe attractions compared to past conventions. The annual cosplay contest was still held, and this time also offered a curated museum of art and life-size replicas and two escape rooms. During TennoLive a 30-minute live of demo of Empyrean, the upcoming Warframe expansion, was revealed along with a new game intro directed by Dan Trachtenberg of 10 Cloverfield Lane fame. Those present during the convention were given the chance to take a first-look at the game’s beautiful new rendering technology. New footage was also revealed for the next open world expansion, Duviri Paradox, as well as the fourth Cinematic Quest titled The New War.

TennoCon 2019 was also the first time that Digital Extremes expanded the live broadcast production to include all the developer panels and presentations from the show’s main stage. This allowed those at home to join the attendees. Viewer donations during the broadcast plus the proceeds of TennoCon resulted in a substantial amount donated to this year’s charity parner, Canadian Mental Health Association. Digital Extremes also donated to GuardianCon, which is an annual convention that celebrates the gaming community for the benefit of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
