Helldivers 2 is PlayStation’s fastest-selling game, surpassing 12 million copies in 12 weeks

Helldivers 2 is PlayStation’s fastest-selling game, the company announced in its latest financial earnings call. It achieved this title after crossing 12 million copies sold in 12 weeks, beating the record previously held by God of War Ragnarok, which reported 11 million copies sold in 10 weeks. Video Games Chronicle.

Developer Arrowhead Game Studios’ live-service multiplayer shooter sequel hits PlayStation 5 on February 8, with a simultaneous PC release on the same day, which is new to PlayStation. Its usual PC strategy sees PlayStation games launch on PC years after the game’s console release – the Ghost of Tsushima director’s cut is coming to PC just this month, for example. Launching on PC day and date with PS5 seems like the right call, though, as Helldivers 2 is now a smash hit for PlayStation.

Arrowhead Game Studios CEO Johan Pilestedt celebrated the news, saying there are more Helldivers 2 players than Swedes (the studio is based in Stockholm, Sweden) and thanked the players who helped the team and PlayStation reach this feat.

Notably, Arrowhead Game Studios is independent – ​​PlayStation published Helldivers 2 as a PS5 console exclusive, previously referred to as second-party. However, with more and more acquisitions happening this generation, it wouldn’t be surprising if PlayStation tried to bring Arrowhead Game Studios under the first-party umbrella.
