Salvation for Helldivers 2 Servers?

This x-tweet from Pilestedt has news from the Arrowhead Studios creative director on changes expected to allow up to 800,000 simultaneous players in Helldivers 2. This seems to have worked, as a follow-up from a few hours ago indicates the developer feels it has finally overcome the capacity issues that have plagued the third-person shooter sequel since its launch:
I'm really happy and proud of the @arrowheadgs team for an amazing Achievement, the servers handled all @helldivers2 players this weekend without problem.

Now we have time to focus on improvements to the title and resume our original plan. Many exciting things upcoming!
