In an interview with PC Gamer, the protagonist Johnny Rico’s interpreter was asked about the repercussion of the title for PS5. According to him, the game’s popularity would have benefited everyone: both those involved with the game and the films.

Van Dien also took advantage of the moment to promote the new Starship Troopers game, Starship Troopers: Extermination. In the title, which will be available for consoles and PC in October this year, he will reprise his role as Rico.

Helldivers 2 is a good homage to Starship Troopers. But it’s not Starship Troopers. It doesn’t get any bigger than that. Some people send me messages.

I see stuff on Instagram and all that, and I thought it was cool. But I mean, I’m Johnny Rico. I’m in Starship Troopers.
