Helldivers 2 Updates

Helldivers 2 has obviously been a huge hit for both Sony and developer Arrowhead Studios, but without regular updates, any ongoing game will struggle to maintain a large audience in the current live service landscape. Fortunately, most would agree that the team's been doing a great job when it comes to keeping Helldivers 2 ticking — but apparently, Arrowhead does want to smooth things out a little going forward.

According to the developer's community manager — known as Twinbeard on the game's official Discord — the concern is that updates can be a touch too frequent. "We want to take some more time for this [most recent patch] and potentially between future patches since we feel cadence has probably been a bit too high to be able to maintain the quality standard we want and you deserve," Twinbeard told the community.

Amongst some players, there's a feeling that recent updates have been a bit heavy-handed, particularly when it comes to gameplay balance. And again, there's been criticism regarding patch frequency in that balance adjustments don't have long enough to properly settle. The hope, then, is that fewer patches will mean better patches.
