“Democracy Prevails”: Sony Agrees to Players’ Demands, Removes Mandatory PSN Requirement in Helldivers 2

For several consecutive days, player outrage has been brewing over the recent update in Helldivers 2. Due to Sony’s directive, the developers of the popular cooperative shooter implemented mandatory linking of PSN accounts in the game. This decision did not sit well with PC gamers, who have already written over 300,000 negative reviews on Steam. Surprisingly, the gamers’ fight has not been in vain, and the company is reversing its decision.

Through official social media channels, Sony announced that they hear the players and understand their discontent. Since the idea of mandatory PSN account linking in Helldivers 2 didn’t sit well with many, it will be permanently scrapped. The company emphasizes that player feedback is invaluable for project development, and player opinions will always be considered.

“Helldivers fans, we’ve heard your feedback regarding the account linking update in Helldivers 2. The update from May 6, which would have required Steam and PlayStation Network account linking for new players, as well as existing players starting May 30, will not be implemented.

We’re still exploring what’s best for PC players, and your feedback is invaluable. Thank you again for your continued support of Helldivers 2, and we’ll keep you updated on future plans,”

– said Sony.

Fans of Helldivers 2 and regular gamers have already dubbed this day a significant ‘victory for democracy.’ This is one of the few instances where a major company listens to gamers and consciously refrains from imposing its own third-party services.
