Helldivers 2: Roadmap – This is officially known so far

Is there an official roadmap? No, there is currently no roadmap that players can access and get an overview of future planned content (as of March 5, 2024).

Arrowhead, the Helldivers development studio, of course has an internal plan for upcoming updates, but the Helldivers 2 roadmap is very outdated and no longer up to date, the studio's CEO announced.

This upcoming content has been officially announced: Since March 5th it has been officially known that Helldivers 2 will receive some kind of mechs. The so-called “EXO-45 Patriot Exosuits” are already in production so that they will soon be available to the above-earth in the fight against their enemies.

However, the developers did not announce an exact date when the exosuit will be available. The announcement only mentions “soon”.

Mechs were briefly seen in one of the first trailers, which led many players to hope that they would appear in future updates.

Here you can see the official announcement of the mechs:

Helldivers 2: Roadmap – This content is circulating unofficially on the Internet

What has been disseminated unofficially so far? Next to the mechs, of which on X.com While gameplay was even shown early, videos of an unreleased armored personnel carrier (APC for short) circulated.

This personnel carrier can be requested as tactical equipment during a mission, similar to a gun or support weapon.

You can see a video of the personnel transport vehicle on X.com:

A new opponent for the over-earth: Data miners have also found clues about new enemies and equipment and shared them on Reddit. What particularly stands out here is the “new” enemy type: the Illuminated.

The Illuminated are a highly developed extraterrestrial civilization who were already among the opponents of the above-earth in Helldivers 1.

Helldivers 2: Roadmap – content that is also conceivable without concrete information

What content could come? In addition to the Illuminated, there was another enemy faction in Helldivers 2: the Cyborgs.

The cyborgs are similar to the robots and Terminids opponents of the Helldivers. Her home planet is Cyberstan.

The cyborgs consist of former humans who led a rebellion against the Over-Earth and were obsessed with cybernetic augmentation of their bodies. A Helldivers 2 player also has the theory that the cyborgs are the “masters” of the robots:

Helldivers 2 players think they've figured out the robots' destination – and it's not the Over-Earth
