Helldivers 2 is the upcoming sequel to the popular top-down shooter and is coming to PC and PS5, but players are wondering if the game will be released on Xbox Series X/S.
The original game in the series, Helldivers, is an incredibly enjoyable shooter that still stands as one of the best co-op games on the market. However, despite the success, the game never made it to Xbox consoles, much to the grievances of players. Now, with the sequel launching in February, many players are wondering if they will miss out on another great game due to console exclusivity deals.
No, Helldivers 2 will not be released on Xbox. This is the first PlayStation game that will receive a simultaneous PC and PS5 release, and given the exclusivity of the previous game, Helldivers 2 will never come to Xbox consoles.
To add insult to injury, Sony owns the IP to the Helldivers franchise and is the publisher behind the game. Therefore, the only solution to playing Helldivers 2 on a console is through a PlayStation 5.
No, Helldivers 2 will not be released on PC Game Pass. While the game will be playable to PC, it will not come to PC Game Pass and will likely be exclusive to Steam. As Helldivers has never featured on other PC storefronts, such as the Epic Games Store, Helldivers 2 will follow suit and not come to PC Game Pass or Xbox Game Pass.
Helldivers 2 will launch on PlayStation 5 and PC on February 8, 2024. If you want to keep up to date with the latest updates and articles on the game, make sure you check out our Guide Hub.
