Helldivers 2: PSN Scandal Swells – Developers Surprised By Sony’s Latest Move!

Helldivers 2 has been removed from Steam in three more countries without PlayStation Network account support: Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania…



The Helldivers 2 controversy continues despite Sony apologizing to the community after forcing players to create a PlayStation Network account to play Arrowhead’s co-op shooter. It seemed like that was all behind us. But in the past few hours, some attention-grabbing information that may be related to the PSN account has come to light.

To the surprise of many players, Helldivers 2 has also been removed from Steam in three countries that do not support PlayStation Network accounts.

These three areas are Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. According to SteamDB, the restriction occurred three days ago, on May 10. It’s unclear if users who purchased the game in those countries will still have access. Upon hearing the news, Arrowhead Game Studios CEO Johan Pilestedt took to the official Discord channel (via Helldiversmedia ).

“We have no idea what’s going on. Most devs are on a bank holiday and we just found out through the community. We want the game to be available worldwide,” he said. According to GamesRadar, the 170-country purchase restriction has yet to be reversed, but on March 9, Helldivers 2’s director noted that Sony and Valve are working to make the PVE shooter available worldwide.


Could the problem of Helldivers 2 also have arisen in the case of Ghost of Tsushima?!


It was reported yesterday that the Sony PSN account controversy regarding Ghost of Tsushima has returned. After the open-world title Sucker Punch disappeared from 170 countries, Steam has reportedly initiated refunds for players who purchased the title in those territories. There is still time for all this to change. The developers have revealed that Ghost of Tsushima will only require a PSN account for the PlayStation overlay and Legends multiplayer; it will not be necessary to enjoy Jin Sakai’s story.
