After a recent spike in player numbers during a busy weekend, Helldivers 2 servers are once again being bolstered to accommodate the influx of new players. Arrowhead Studios CEO Johan Pilestedt took to Twitter to announce that they are expecting the servers to reach the maximum capacity of 800,000 concurrent users in just a few hours. This surge in players comes after the co-op shooter exceeded the peak player count of games like God of War, making it one of PlayStation’s biggest Steam launches.

Arrowhead Studios has been consistent in addressing the issue of long queues by releasing multiple patches that allow more players to join the game simultaneously. Despite these efforts, there are still reports of occasional “light queues,” according to Pilestedt. The CEO also highlighted the impressive response from the community considering the studio’s relatively small size of around 100 developers. To cope with the high demand, the studio has initiated a hiring spree to expand its workforce.

While the primary focus has been on optimizing server capacity, Pilestedt mentioned that the team is also working on more exciting projects. Some developers are dedicated to improving the game’s performance, while others are focused on creating new content. Speculations among players suggest that upcoming updates may include the introduction of mechs and factions from the previous game. This hints at exciting possibilities for Helldivers 2 players in the near future.

Overall, the success of Helldivers 2 and the studio’s proactive response to the surge in player numbers paint a promising picture for the game’s future. With a dedicated team working on both server optimization and new content, players can expect a seamless gaming experience with exciting additions to the gameplay. As Arrowhead Studios continues to expand its workforce and address player feedback, Helldivers 2 is poised to remain a popular choice among co-op shooter enthusiasts.
