“There are more Helldivers than Swedes” says Helldivers 2 lead as his game becomes Sony’s fastest-selling title ever

It’s only been out three months, but Sony has revealed that everyone’s favorite extraction shooter has become the fastest-selling PlayStation game ever.

Having launched on PS5 and PC on February 8, 2024, Helldivers 2 moved a whopping 12 million units during its first 12 weeks, according to Sony’s FY23 earnings call. This like-for-like ratio was enough to beat the likes of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and God of War: Ragnarok in fresh-out-the-gate sales โ€“ no small feat for Swedish developer Arrowhead Studios. The honor shifts to Arrowhead from Sony Santa Monica, when in 2022, the God of War: Ragnarok developer reported 5.1 million copies sold during its first week and 11 million copies total sold across its inaugural 12 weeks. Insomniac’s Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 stole the show last year with a whopping 2.5 million units sold on day-one, but when it comes to the 12-week numbers game, Helldivers 2 is the clear top seller.
