Helldivers 2 Could Be The Next Fortnite?! Developers Talk About Collaboration

Arrowhead Game Studios views the Helldivers 2 crossovers with “interest”, but a great deal of respect for the game’s “fantasy and lore.”



As one of the biggest hits of 2024, several entertainment companies turned their attention to Helldivers 2. This usually leads to the announcement of collaborations between brands. In this case, it would bring characters and elements from series, movies and other products to the war developed by Arrowhead Game Studios.

However, these situations can only happen under one condition: the crossover makes sense in the shooter sci-fi context.

As a Community Manager at Arrowhead Game Studios stated on the official Helldivers 2 Discord server (via GamesRadar+). “We look at them [collaborations] with interest, but I would say with a lot of respect for the fantasy and lore of the game,” the team member explained. “As a couple of examples: Melee weapons could be plausible in Helldivers. Lightsabers from [Star Wars] would not. A helldiver finding a remnant, artifact, or a letter from someone from another game/cultural universe is plausible. Mickey Mouse writing a helldiver wouldn’t. And so on.”

“Crossovers should make sense,” the CM continues in his Discord message. “Crossovers have to make sense. We don’t want to be Kingdom Hearts or Fortnite. If we do them, we want them to add something – feelgood, fun, a memory, but we like for it to make sense and fit in. ” The Arrowhead Game Studios professional here mentions Epic Games’ battle royale and Square Enix’s Saga precisely because they integrate all kinds of characters into their world.

Helldivers 2 really seems to want to break away from that practice and go its own way.


Deep Rock Galactic invites Helldivers 2 to collaborate


Either way, Arrowhead Game Studios certainly has a handful of companies looking to collaborate in the sci-fi universe. In fact, the team behind Deep Rock Galactic asked the creators of Helldivers 2 to request a crossover between the two worlds. All this could even become a reality if we listen to the message written in binary code, which quickly caught the attention of fans…
