Helldivers 2 Studio’s New CEO Says Its Goal Is To ‘Make More And Better Stuff’ In The Long Term

Shams Jorjani, the newly-appointed CEO of Arrowhead Game Studios, has taken to Reddit to introduce himself to the Helldivers 2 community, and given fans an idea of what to expect from the studio moving forward. In short, they want to deliver “more and better stuff” long-term.

We knew it would be impossible to keep up with demand and the insatiable hunger for more fun shit to do in/with HD2. Our singular focus as a studio is to set things up in a sustainable way so that in the long term we can make more and better stuff. We’re building a bit of scaffolding before we can make a bigger barn. Queue ‘where’s the patch?????’ comments.

Elsewhere, the Arrowhead Game Studios boss took to the Helldivers 2 Discord, where he admitted “we’re definitely understaffed given the demand” for updates, but added “we want to find a good pace for growth.”

He also addressed former CEO Johan Pilestedt, stating his decision to step down “is all about getting Pilen closer to the games. Making new games/prototypes, having more time to play Helldivers, work closer to Micke our excellent Game Director and the many other designers/devs we have. I’ve charged Pilen with being the Obi-wan to many ‘Lukes’ in our studio. If everyone can hear Pilen’s sage voice in the back of their heads when they’re balancing weapons, designing missions or enemies the better.”

Helldivers 2 was released for the PS5 and PC back in February 2024 and has been a huge success, with over 12 million copies sold worldwide and becoming the fastest-selling PlayStation game of all time.
