In a remarkable achievement, Helldivers 2 has become the most successful PlayStation Studios release on Steam, drawing in over 150,000 players at once. This figure doubles the previous record held by God of War, showcasing the game’s massive appeal.

Developed by Arrowhead, this cooperative third-person shooter has captivated gamers, reaching a peak of 155,926 concurrent players over the weekend. This launch strategy, simultaneous on Steam and PlayStation 5, marks a significant departure from previous releases.

Johan Pilestedt, CEO of Arrowhead, shared on social media that Helldivers 2 has sold around a million copies, with an even split between PC and PlayStation 5 players.

However, the launch was not without its hiccups. Pilestedt apologized for early errors, attributing them to server overload. Despite these challenges, the team released PC and PlayStation 5 patches to improve matchmaking issues.
