Popular PS5 Hit Helldivers 2 Might Arrive on Xbox: Report

  • Helldivers 2’s arrival on Xbox might lead to a shift in Sony’s strategy.
  • This could be great news for gamers as it opens the door to playing any game regardless of their console choice.

Helldivers 2, a popular PS5 and PC title, is expected to reach Xbox someday based on a recent claim by insider Shpeshal_Nick. Helldivers 2 is available on PlayStation and PC (Steam) and has an 82 Metacritic rating. Check out the details.

Helldivers 2 May No Longer Be an Exclusive Title

Renowned insider Shpeshal_Nick, in the latest episode of the XboxEra podcast, claimed that he heard whispers of “very, very early preliminary discussions” about bringing Helldivers 2 to Xbox.

This news comes amidst a leadership shakeup at Sony Interactive Entertainment with the arrival of interim CEO Hiroki Totoki. Shpeshal_Nick speculates that Totoki’s leadership might usher in a new era of openness to multiplatform releases, a strategy that could see PlayStation exclusives like Helldivers 2 branching out to Xbox consoles.

Even though insider Nick thinks putting Helldivers 2 on Xbox makes sense, he warns gamers to temper their excitement. He stresses these are very early talks and there’s no guarantee of a deal. Things could fall through or Sony and Xbox might not reach an agreement.

This year, we have witnessed a shift in the gaming landscape as Microsoft aggressively expands the reach of its Xbox titles. Popular Xbox exclusives like Sea of Thieves, Hi-Fi Rush, and Pentiment are now playable on PlayStation 5, marking a notable change in strategy. This move stands in contrast to Sony’s approach. While Sony has embraced porting some titles to PC, their console exclusivity remains strong. Recent reports also claim that Sea of Thieves (April 30) did perform well on PlayStation.

A game like Helldivers 2 will perform better and achieve great heights if released on Xbox despite being a huge hit on PlayStation and PC. Helldivers 2 became a major success story for Sony, dominating PlayStation 5 and PC. It smashed Sony’s PC launch records, attracting a massive player base on both platforms.
