After many complaints from fans, Sony backs down and Helldivers 2 will not require a PlayStation account on PC

The last few days have been one of the busiest within the community of helldivers 2 on PC that last Friday found that Sony announced the future obligation to use a PlayStation Network account to be able to play its shooter and science fiction title on the computer.

Link both accounts It was going to be necessary from May 30 after an update that was going to be published today, something that had unleashed the complaints of many fans who began to evaluate the game negatively on Steam, especially since yesterday when the game was removed from those countries in which PSN accounts could not be created.

However, after all the controversy and community reaction Sony has decided to back down and just announced a few minutes ago that finally it will not be necessary to link Steam and PlayStation Network accounts to be able to play Helldivers 2 on PC putting an end to a controversy that could have had a reputational blow for the Japanese brand.

“Helldivers fans, we’ve heard your feedback about the Helldivers 2 account linking update. The May 6 update that would have required linking Steam and PSN accounts for new and current players as of May 30 it will finally not go ahead,” says Sony in its official statement.

We’re still learning what’s best for PC gamers and your comments have been invaluable. Thank you again for your continued support of Helldivers 2, we will keep you informed of future plans,” he concludes.

A retreat after hundreds of thousands of negative reviews on Steam

Sony’s backtracking comes after Steam players have started to make more than 215,000 negative reviewssa Helldivers 2 on Steam as protests the account linking by reducing Arrowhead’s recent game reviews to “Extremely Negative” and overall reviews to “Mixed.”

Everything got especially worse yesterday when Helldivers 2 stopped being available in multiple countries that did not have PSN, adding more fuel to the fire of controversy while Valve began to return the money for the game to users in those regions without taking into account the number of hours required for it.
