Sony is in early talks to release Helldivers 2 on Xbox, it’s claimed

April 22, 2024 by No Comments

Helldivers 2 has been in the market for more than two months and during that time it has gained a steady and stable player count. At the heart of this prestigious live service game is a dedicated and thriving community, and while the title doesn’t appear on Xbox platforms – only on PC and PlayStation 5. That may be set to change.

In a recent episode of the XboxEra podcast, it was hinted in ‘The Rumormill’ segment that talks are underway to bring Helldivers 2 to the Xbox Series X|S platform.

As a direct service game, Helldivers 2 is nothing without its players. What better opportunity to expand that player base than to introduce the game to a brand new platform and enhance the title’s crossplay mechanics? This is a sentiment hinted at by ‘Shpeshal Nick’ during a recent XboxEra podcast:

During the episode, Nick said:

We know that PlayStation has a new CEO right now, and I think the new CEO will be more open to certain things. And from what I’ve heard, there may be very, very early, preliminary discussions about the possibility of Helldivers 2 coming to Xbox.

As Nick said – it’s worth stressing that this is not a confirmation, it’s just a rumour. However, it makes perfect sense, and there are really no downsides to the proposition. This expands the community immeasurably and opens the game to a whole new market of gamers.
