Arrowhead on HELLDIVERS 2 Steam Delistings

A post on PCGamesN reproduces a comment on Discord from Arrowhead Games CEO Johan Pilestedt with the latest on Helldivers 2 on Steam. The game was delisted in over 100 territories last week over the requirement of a PlayStation Network account, since the PSN is not available in most countries. The PSN requirement was eventually dropped, but the third-person shooter hasn't returned to the delisted regions. The post comes after three more territories were delisted from Steam, which Johan says was "executed independently by Valve." For the record, however, a post on Reddit indicates the delistings were Sony's call, showing Valve support telling a player "it looks like this game is not available in Steam right now for regions as decided by the publisher." Johan's post says that efforts are underway to reinstate the game everywhere, while admitting it's not going well at this point:
So, to give an update on the three further country restrictions. It was an administrative error correction - they should have been part of the original restriction and it was noticed when the restriction was put in place for Tsushima.

This was noticed and executed independently by Valve.

While it doesn't look positive. It is not an indication of further retrictions. The conversation on region restrictions is still ongoing and is independent of this.

I have no further information. We (Arrowhead) still want the game to be available everywhere.

Hope you all have a great Saturday and I'm sorry I don't have a better update!
