Helldivers 2 PS5 PC

New sales tracking data from GSD — which accounts for both physical and digital purchases — has revealed Helldivers 2 is selling better than Marvel's Spider-Man 2 in the UK across its first eight weeks of availability. The multiplayer title's sales are trending better than what Insomniac's latest web-slinging epic managed within the same time period late last year — a fact nobody could have imagined before the Arrowhead Studios product launched.

Of course, it's important to note Marvel's Spider-Man 2 was sold for £70 while Helldivers 2 can be bought for half the price. However, given the general lack of buzz surrounding the PS5, PC title prior to release, it's still an impressive feat to be outselling one of Sony's biggest budget experiences, even if it is just in one territory. Imagine being told Helldivers 2 would become 2024's best-selling game in the USA so far just over two months ago — there's no way you'd believe it.

The hardware manufacturer hasn't shared official Helldivers 2 sales stats yet, but a Bloomberg report claimed the game had sold eight million copies as of last month. Are you one of the many Helldivers 2 players out there bringing some democracy to the galaxy? Let us know in the comments below.
