There are rumours circling around online that Sony’s upcoming shooter Helldivers 2 has been delayed. The game is expected to launch on 8 February and that is still the case. The confusion comes from Sony’s PlayStation Presentation at CES 2024 where the gameplay snippet for Helldivers 2 shows a 28 February 2024 release date instead of 8 February.
Don’t be alarmed because the game is still scheduled to launch on 8 February. According to Arrowhead Game Studios, the date in the Sony CES 2024 press conference trailer was a typo. It was originally meant to say 8 February.
The confirmation comes from the Helldivers Reddit community where the concern was raised about the possible delay. The OP says they got direct confirmation from user Baskinator – the Arrowhead Game Studios Community and Support Lead regarding the confusion.
Perhaps the trailer was meant to say 2/8 meaning February 8. But instead, the “/” was left out by mistake. Regardless, Helldivers 2 is on track for launch… the original launch date. The game is releasing for both PS5 and PC with full cross-play support.
You will be assembled into squads of up to four Helldivers and assigned strategic missions. Rain down freedom from above, sneak through enemy territory or grit your teeth and charge head-first into the jaws of combat. How you deliver liberty is your choice; you’ll have access to a wide array of explosive firepower, life-saving armour and battle-changing stratagems… the jewel in every Helldiver’s arsenal.
Super Earth recognises your hard work with valuable Requisition. Use it to access different rewards that benefit you, your squad, your destroyer ship and our overall war effort. Everything on every planet wants you dead. That’s what we’re dealing with. Each enemy has distinct and unpredictable characteristics, tactics, and behaviour – but they all fight ferociously and without fear or morality.
