Helldivers 2 sells over 12 million units within 12 weeks of going on sale

Helldivers 2 was released on February 8th 2024. It has been a crowd-favorite due to its unique community-driven narrative and of course, the thrilling action. To push Helldivers 2 to new players, Sony recently took a decision which shook everyone’s minds.

In a surprising turn of events, Helldivers 2 sold more than 12 million copies within 12 weeks of going on sale. Sony recently revealed that Helldivers 2 is now the fastest-selling game of all time, knocking out God of War Ragnarok.

Sony Santa Monica’s God of War Ragnarok, which came out in November 2022, sold 11 million copies just 75 days after launch. According to Sony, the co-op third person shooter, Helldivers 2 game far exceeded expectations by crossing remarkable milestones.

However, the sale does not come without a few hiccups. Earlier this month, Sony announced that Helldivers 2 players will be required to link their PSN account on Steam. This decision was faced with intense backlash from upset fans. As a result, there was a barrage of negative reviews on Helldivers 2’s official Steam page.

In the 177 countries where PSN is currently unavailable, Helldivers 2 was pulled from sale. Eventually, Sony overturned their decision, making it optional to link PSN accounts.

For Helldivers 2 fans, there’s a lot in store. The folks over at Arrowhead Studios are already working on bringing more new content to the game. You can expect vehicles, a third enemy faction, and much more coming soon.
