Helldivers 2 Aims to Avoid Being Like Fortnite, Emphasizes Sensible Crossovers

The developers of Helldivers 2, Arrowhead, are open to potential crossovers with other games as long as they fit the game’s fantasy and lore, according to community manager Twinbeard. The team wants to avoid the game turning into something akin to “Kingdom Hearts or Fortnite” and emphasizes that any crossovers must make sense and respect the game’s core identity. While specific potential crossovers are not discussed, fans speculate about a possible collaboration with Deep Rock Galactic.

Given the game’s live service nature, there is a growing trend for online games to incorporate crossovers with other titles. However, Helldivers 2 stands out in this regard with its unique stance on crossovers. In a recent interaction on the Helldivers 2 Discord, Twinbeard clarified that while crossovers may be considered, they will only entertain those that “make sense” and add to the game.

The team wants to ensure that any potential crossovers do not compromise the game’s lore and fantasy. The possibilities for crossovers are open-ended and could include elements such as melee weapons or items from other game universes, provided that they align with Helldivers 2’s militaristic theme. Fans have also speculated potential collaborations with games such as Deep Rock Galactic, Halo, and the Earth Defense Force series, alongside Arrowhead’s strong inspiration from Starship Troopers.

One intriguing prospect is a collaboration with Deep Rock Galactic, as suggested by developer Ghost Ship Games. Clues from both games’ official social media accounts have sparked interest among players, hinting at a possible connection. Despite the potential for crossovers, it is clear that Helldivers 2 aims to maintain its unique identity and refrain from incorporating unrelated elements that could dilute its core experience.
