That’s not all; players spent an average of 20.2 hours last month spreading managed democracy. It also became the sixth most-played shooter on PC and PS5 but ranked 15th outside its genre.

Helldivers 2 Has Continued To Surpass Everyone’s Expectations

Arrowhead Studios’ Magnum Opus has been incredibly well-received by the gaming industry. Many players flocked to it, causing servers to overload during the early days. Things have now stabilized for the entry, but the active player count and sales have only increased. An estimate by a prominent analyst earlier suggested that it has sold over 8 million copies. Likewise, it also became this year’s best-selling title in the USA.
