Sony doubles down, removing Helldivers 2 from sale in 177 countries and territories that can’t access PSN while Arrowhead CEO says ‘I don’t have the final say’

Even as members of Helldivers studio Arrowhead Games say that discussions around Sony’s controversial PlayStation Network sign in requirement for Helldivers 2 on PC are still ongoing, it looks like the publisher is doubling down on the move, halting sales of the game in countries where it doesn’t offer the service.

In theory, Helldivers 2 was always supposed to require players to sign into the PlayStation Network in game, but this was not required at launch due to network infrastructure limitations (remember Helldivers 2’s early server woes?). Two days ago, Sony announced that it would begin enforcing that requirement in a month-long rollout.
