Helldivers 2 Dev Suggests Players Take A Break Amid Crashing Issues

Expert Verified By

"Let Democracy Rest For Few days!"

Story Highlight
  • Helldivers 2 was released two months ago, and the game has only attracted more players since then.
  • A recent patch has been causing crash issues, making it annoying for players to enjoy the game.
  • The developers have confirmed an update is on the way for this problem and have also suggested that fans take a break from the game for a while.

Helldivers 2 has sold 8 million copies to become the biggest game of February. These figures have translated into an active community that constantly remains engaged, whether it be through social media or the game itself.

One major reason behind this success has been the team’s consistency in updating Helldivers 2. With each new update, the game introduces fixes, additional content, and more.

However, the latest update has caused crashing problems. In classic Arrowhead Games Studios nature, the developer has responded in a funny manner, suggesting that players put the game down for a while.

Why it matters: Helldivers 2 is part of the live service genre. Engagement is the biggest goal for any team making live service games, so such statements can only be made by Arrowhead Game Studios.

Arrowhead CM: “A hotfix for the crashes is coming, but not over the weekend. Hang in there or perhaps let the game rest for a while.”

Over on Discord, the Arrowhead Game Studios CM has advised fans to stay tuned for an incoming hotfix to fix the crashes. However, this update won’t be deployed over the weekend.

In the meantime, Arrowhead Game Studios suggests players take it easy for a while.

perhaps let the game rest for a while.

This statement highlights one major reason for the game’s current success. Unlike most teams, Arrowhead Game Studios does not shy away from accepting its flaws. The team insists its players step away from democracy for a while.

This has created a friendly atmosphere in the community, bridging the gap between the developers and Helldivers 2 fans.

Let democracy lie for a few days.

Helldivers 2 Is Still Going Strong On Steam

The developer has made similar statements in the past. When Helldivers 2 faced a troubled launch, Arrowhead Game Studios was quick to ask players to save their money for later if they felt unsatisfied.

Overall, such responses go a long way toward building trust in the relationship between the team and its players. The developers have even playfully joked about friendly fire in the past.

Anyhow, with the weekend nearly over, Helldivers 2 will receive the scheduled hotfix soon.

The game will also receive a new Warbound next week, adding more weapons, armor pieces, emotes, and more. Therefore, the community’s patience will certainly be rewarded very soon.
