So as more people check out the game, it’s best to know if Helldivers 2’s servers are up, and if there are planned maintenance or outages. 

Are Helldivers 2’s servers down?

Unfortunately, Helldivers 2 servers are currently experiencing issues. This seems to be caused by a spike in the game’s concurrent player count exceeding the server’s capacity. Fortunately, devs are aware of this, and they’re working to “increase server capacity” in order to “accomodate” players.

Since the game’s launch, devs have dedicated themselves into issuing several patches to improve the game’s experience. The latest one, PATCH 01.000.009, focused on smoothing out stability and matchmaking issues, as well as other bug fixes.
