Former Helldivers 2 lead writer “burned out hard” while updating the near flawless live service game: “I absolutely destroyed myself”

Arrowhead Studios’ former lead writer Russ Nickel felt burned out after continually updating a live service game as flexible and unpredictable as Helldivers 2

Helldivers 2 has been able to do the impossible for a live service game (stick around for longer than two hours) because the team actively reacts to everything the players do, in and outside the game itself. Helldivers 2’s most contested planet got commemorated with an in-game Memorial Day, while the recent review-bombing fiasco might also be immortalized with a free cape.
