When the developers of Helldivers 2 Arrowhead Game Studios noticed a major issue they changed the design of enemies which led to controversy among players following a PlayStation update. Helldivers 2 was blocked from 180 countries after negative comments about the game were made on Steam, the developers were aware of the issue but were busy. As well as apologising to the gamers and wishing them luck with the patch they pledge to solve it and check that their updates function properly.

Helldivers 2 Developers Commitment to Stability The Game

Fans were reassured by Twinbeard of the team’s commitment to maintaining Helldivers 2’s stability. He expressed the developers readiness to put in time and effort to carefully review their changes and highlighted the value of complete testing. He expressed the expectation that the way the team addressed the detected bug will satisfy the players, uncertainty surrounds Helldivers 2’s future course even as it works to recover from the current crisis. 

Although the setback Arrowhead Game Studios has assured the game durability by teasing upcoming updates that hint to the return of the Illuminate faction as well as the addition of new armour and weaponry. Even with ongoing difficulties Helldivers 2 is strong and ready to go across every detail of its changing environment thanks to the constant support of its loyal community and the hard work of its developers.

Reports of Bug in Patrol Rates and PSN Account-linking Update

According to community manager Twinbeard the developers of Helldivers 2 have received multiple reports pointing to a possible bug that could be influencing opponent patrol rates. This bug was most noticeable for solo players and teams with incomplete squads. Arrowhead Game Studios has known about this problem for a while, but because of the fallout from the previous events the team found it difficult to devote the necessary time and personnel to fix it right now. 

Thankfully, the developers have decided to undo the spawn rate modifications after confirming that there is a problem with enemy patrols. The general public’s opinion of Helldivers 2 drastically changed following the PSN account-linking update. Thousands of players left negative reviews on the game Steam page expressing their disappointment with Sony for applying this rule months after Arrowhead Game Studios cooperative shooter release. 

Even though Sony eventually pulled the account-linking update, the damage had already been done and Helldivers 2 was taken off the market in 180 countries. Also a comment from the official Helldivers 2 Discord channel revealed that the controversy also interfered with the game’s production.
