Helldivers 2 Is PlayStation's Fastest-Selling Game Ever, Crossing 12 Million Copies In 12 Weeks

Arrowhead Game Studios CEO Johan Pilestedt celebrated the news, noting there are more Helldivers 2 players than Swedes (the studio is based in Stockholm, Sweden) while thanking players for helping the team and PlayStation reach this achievement. 

As announced in the Sony earnings call, we have sold over 12M units!

It’s crazy to think that there are more Helldivers than there are Swedes 🤯

What a massive achievement from everyone involved in realizing @Helldivers2. A massive thank you to the community for your support,…

Notably, Arrowhead Game Studios is independent – PlayStation published Helldivers 2 as a PS5 console exclusive, in a way previously referred to as second-party. However, given acquisitions are happening more and more this generation, it wouldn’t be surprising if PlayStation attempted to bring Arrowhead Game Studios under the first-party umbrella.
