Devs Siding With Fans to Revert Sony's Decision!

Story Highlights
  • The Helldivers 2 developers are asking fans to post negative reviews on Steam.
  • They assert this step will help convince Sony to revert the change amid discussions on a potential solution.
  • In a new tweet, the game director has also acknowledged the problem of players in countries without official PlayStation support.

Helldivers 2 recently became controversial, with Sony forcing players to log in to a PlayStation account to access the game. This has led to a considerable loss in the player base after negative reviews.

In a surprising turn of events, the Helldivers 2 team is siding with the fans, encouraging the negative reviews.

Why it matters: Before this debacle, Helldivers 2 flourished and maintained a solid player base months after the launch.

While the future currently looks gloomy for Helldiver 2, things might turn out fine. Community manager Spitz has asked fans to voice their displeasure against Sony’s decision.

He specifically points to Steam reviews and refunds since these will make the most significant difference. The community manager also admitted to being oblivious to the lack of worldwide PlayStation support until recently.

I want people to make their displeasure known in a place where it might make a difference.

-Helldivers 2 Community Manager

It seems the community has wholeheartedly acknowledged this statement as the recent reviews on the Steam page have turned ‘overwhelmingly negative.‘ Steam is also refunding purchases regardless of time spent in the game.

Helldivers 2 is under fire after Sony decided to force a PlayStation account requirement.

Meanwhile, Arrowhead CEO Johan Pilestedt just broke his silence an hour ago.

He states that the team already knew about this PlayStation requirement as early as six months ago. However, he has confirmed that Arrowhead is specifically trying to solve the PlayStation region support issue.

Sony has been responsible for questionable acts recently, with the censorship on Stellar Blade also causing a huge uproar.

PlayStation is currently leading the charge as the winner of the console wars. Being at this top and rupturing its brand because of these decisions could create enormous issues for Sony. 

Still, it is reassuring to know that the Helldivers 2 team is standing with the consumers. This is a rare instance of a studio that appreciates its community and continues to help them in time of need.
