Arrowhead Game Studios’ Helldivers 2 quickly became a phenomenon in the gaming industry but three months after its release, it seems like the game isn’t exciting enough to keep the players hooked as more and more players have stopped playing the game. There are several reasons behind this, including Sony’s PSN account linking policy implementation and lack of innovative gear, weapons, or Stratagems.

Arrowhead has finally realized that players have been begging to see some new items in the game so, the reward for completing the new Major Order is a new form of Exosuit. There is another way to save the game that players have been suggesting: an Xbox release, but it’s hard to see it becoming a reality. Sony is very protective of its property and giving Microsoft an opportunity to release a profitable game like Helldivers is definitely not their style.

An Xbox release could potentially save Helldivers 2 but since Sony published and funded Helldivers 2 it’s nearly impossible. The only way to save the game is to make it more exciting and Arrowhead is slowly taking things in that direction. A new Stratagem has been announced today and players can unlock it by completing the latest Major Order.

Why is Helldivers 2 losing popularity?

Over the past few weeks, Helldivers 2 has been losing popularity because players have been expecting to see some new items but with every update, players were left more and more disappointed, particularly with the Polar Patriots Warbond.

Then came the nail in the coffin, Sony and Arrowhead announced that it was mandatory for PC players to link PSN accounts to continue playing. This invited a lot of criticism from the community and when Helldivers 2 was bombarded with bad reviews on Steam, the game got delisted in many countries.

Although Sony and Arrowhead revoked the policy, it just couldn’t convince players to return to the game. Apart from all these issues, players have also complained about glitches and bugs in the game. The game’s popularity has certainly plummeted but Arrowhead still has the chance to save the game as the third faction is yet to be revealed.

Helldivers 2 is available on Windows and PlayStation 5.
