“Earlier tonight, we experienced server issues with a high number of concurrent players,” the team said. “This lead [sic] Some mission batches may fail, some players will be kicked back to their ships, or they will log out.

“Our team is working around the clock to resolve these issues. While we have been able to mitigate some of the causes, we are still struggling to keep up with the expansion required to accommodate all of our Helldivers.

“Therefore, we had to limit our number of concurrent players to around 450,000 to further improve server stability,” the team added. “We will continue to work with our partners to raise the bar.

“If you are having progress issues, please restart the game so things are back in sync. Thank you for your continued patience.”

This news comes on the heels of yesterday's statement from Arrowhead in which it apologized for ongoing “server capacity issues.”

After pledging to give all players a 50% XP and order bonus to make up for the “issue” that was giving incorrect rewards at the end of missions, Helldivers 2’s concurrent Steam count continued to rise yesterday, which in turn, had a significant impact on server stability.
