Helldivers 2’s release date has been announced, confirming that the game has been delayed.
Originally planned to be ready by the end of 2023, the game will now be released on February 8, 2024.
The announcement accompanied the release of new gameplay footage, showing co-op gameplay in action.
The players are seen taking on the Bile Titan, a massive bug-like monster.
“I’m ecstatic to finally reveal the project we’ve devoted ourselves to over the past few years,” Arrowhead CEO and game director Johan Pilestedt wrote in a PlayStation Blog post earlier this year, when the game was originally announced.
“Our team’s achievements in this time have been a source of immense pride. Whether you’re a seasoned player of the original game or a newcomer to the Helldivers universe, I can’t wait for you to dive into our tongue-in-cheek portrayal of a totalitarian regime.
“Brace yourselves for adrenaline-fueled moments, intense action, and a bond that forms when you rely on your team to complete missions or comically fail due to the reckless handling of over-the-top firepower. Most importantly, we hope that the laughter we share in the studio while playing the game will resonate with you as you enjoy this crazy universe.”
