Arrowhead Game Studios Comments on Helldivers 2 Server Issues

Arrowhead Game Studios released a new comment on the ongoing Helldivers 2 server issues.

The X (formerly Twitter) post mentions ongoing efforts to increase server capacity to accommodate overwhelming demand.

Despite our best efforts to increase server capacity to accommodate all of you who want to dive for Freedom, we are experiencing capacity issues. We are once more working without delay to improve the issue and we hope to have a fix in place as soon as possible. Thank you

This is at a rather unfortunate time for Helldivers 2, as it’s something of a perfect storm. In addition to the free PlayStation Plus weekend, Arrowhead Games Studios decided to give all players a 50 percent multiplier this weekend to make up for initial server issues.

While the server issues will hopefully be corrected in the next day or so, an update was released addressing a wide variety of issues present in Helldivers 2.
