With Bonnie Tyler’s Holding Out for a Hero playing as a backdrop to a highly cinematic trailer showing off Helldivers 2’s adrenaline-filled gameplay, a user shared a fan-made trailer for the game that focuses on bringing it to Xbox. But, will this really happen? Well, that’s for time to tell. And the company’s intentions for non-exclusivity going forward.

User LaundryGuy1945 has shared the video (originally from TikTok by user masterchief56_soulkiller) that carefully combines some awesome moments shared between players during their playthrough of the game.

Despite the game not being available on Xbox at the moment, it seems like players from other platforms are wholeheartedly sharing their love for it, requesting that it be available on other consoles too. Hopefully, this should be something the devs are working on.

Xbox’s Focus on Non-Exclusivity Might Just Make This Possible

With a focus on cloud gaming and accessibility, the game could thrive on multiple platforms in the future.

In a recent podcast, Phil Spencer and others focused on the platform’s vision for the future. Instead of bringing more exclusives to the console, the team plans on breaking away from the chains of exclusivity and focusing on building a more approachable and accessible platform for gamers across the globe.

This means that the team is likely to open up its horizons to multiple publishers and developers, one of which could include the makers of the game. In the end, its philosophy is to focus on making the console a platform for creators rather than one that thrives on exclusivity.

Even though there’s no official news about the game coming to newer platforms anytime soon, the community still celebrates the game’s success by sharing gameplay footage, creative content, and more.

How do you feel about the game’s exclusivity at the moment? Do you think it needs to change? Let us know in the comments below.
