[09:52 PM EST Feb 22] Helldivers 2 Waiting Time Tracker [Updated Daily]

In Short

  • Low chance of getting to play now.
  • The chance of getting to play will increase for the next 10-12 hours as US players leave.

Arrowhead, the studio behind Helldivers 2, capped concurrent players at 700,000 for server stability and noted a 50/50 player base split between PC and PS5.

On Thursday, 22 February 2024 at 09:52 PM EST, we see 422K players on Steam. So, we can safely assume similar numbers for PS5 as well.

 So, it’s probably in the range of 844K people who are trying to play right now.

That is 144K more than the servers can accommodate. So, you have a low chance of getting to play the game now.

Best and Worst Times to Play Helldivers 2

Based on our recent data, the majority of the players are from the US. We see a big waiting line during US evening and night hours, but very few players waiting during US midnight or early morning.

So, if you’re in Asia or Australia, you’ll likely have a better chance to play during your evening or night.

Similarly, for players located in Europe, Africa, or Russia, you may also find favorable playing conditions during your evening or night hours.

For players in the US and Canada, the most favorable times for gameplay are typically during late morning or early afternoon hours on weekdays when there are fewer players waiting.

Conversely, the busiest times, resulting in longer wait times, are usually during the evening to night hours, especially on weekdays and weekends when player activity peaks.
