The Japan-based technology company Sony’s Helldivers 2 game initially received great interest when released. However, recently the game’s player base significantly declined. At the time of release, about half a million players played Helldivers 2, but now it has only around 35 thousand concurrent players. This is a significant drop compared to the 65 thousand players at the beginning.

Major Drop in Helldivers 2’s Player Count

Helldivers 2 Lost 90% of Its Players!

According to SteamDB data, the game lost 90% of its player base. It should be noted that Helldivers 2 is not just a story-based production; players can also play it online cooperatively. However, the PSN account requirement led to the game being removed from sale in many countries and resulted in over 20,000 Steam accounts being banned. This situation caused the game’s popularity to rapidly decline.

In the gaming industry, mandatory requirements that do not align with user preferences can lead to such significant losses. The situation experienced by Helldivers 2 serves as an important lesson for other game developers. Acting in accordance with the desires and needs of players is critical for the long-term success of the game.
