Helldivers 2 Patch Causes ‘Nasty’ PS5 Login Bug That’s Stopping People Playing

Helldivers 2’s latest patch has caused a “nasty” PlayStation 5 login bug that’s currently preventing people from playing the game.

Helldivers 2 patch 1.000.11 launched across PS5 and Steam today, February 22, and promised to kick AFK players and fix the defrosting bug.

But it appears to have caused a PS5 specific issue that is now making Helldivers 2 unplayable on Sony’s console. IGN has received multiple reports from players unable to login, and have verified the dreaded “servers at capacity” message is present on PS5.

Addressing the issue in a post on the Helldivers Discord, developer Arrowhead said it was aware and on the case.

“We´re currently experiencing a nasty PS5 login bug,” Arrowhead said. “We´ve sent our most trustworthy team The Bug Crushers (TM) to investigate a relay station in the outer rim that went silent earlier today. As soon as they report back, we´ll update you here. Pray for them.”

Helldivers 2 is Sony’s biggest PC game launch of all time, with a peak concurrent player figure of 457,649 on Steam. Helldivers 2’s success has even sparked renewed interest in Starship Troopers, the film from which it draws quite a bit of inspiration.

But it has also suffered significant server issues Arrowhead has battled since the game came out. A patch released earlier this week aimed to fix the bulk of these issues, but much work is left to do. It has since emerged that Helldivers 2 was built on an engine that was discontinued after work on the game began.

IGN’s Helldivers 2 review returned a 9/10. “Helldivers 2’s combat feels fantastic, its missions stay fresh and interesting, and its smart progression system doesn’t nickel and dime you,” we said.
