New Server Cap and Update to Helldivers 2

helldivers 2

Helldivers 2 is growing faster than I think anyone could predict, and the developers had to raise its server cap to 700,000 players. Players have reported that they can't play Helldivers 2 because of server issues since launch. One of the main reasons is players figured out that they didn't have to log out of the game to stay on the servers. Arrowhead has fixed this issue.

The CEO of Arrowhead, Johan Pilestedt, has been highly communicative with the player base and keeping everyone aware of how they're fixing all issues with servers and the game. I don't think I have ever seen a developer consistently share this much information with the player base. If you are a Helldivers 2 fan, he is a must-follow on X and help save democracy.

Below are the full patch notes for the latest update to Helldivers 2.
