The Arrowhead chief is torturing us Helldivers fans again!
No, that’s great. Throw enough good “spaghetti concepts” at the wall, I’m sure something eventually “sticks.”
I’ve blabbed in other forums there’s always some danger in trying to veer popular games into other genres. You can end up with junk like XCOM space combat and FPS games. And there’s probably a reason Blizzard nixed its proposed Starcraft: Ghost 3rd person action game.
I blanche when players suggest doing Helldivers as an FPS.
You can end up with maybe decent games (like the Halo Strike isometric twin-stick games, and Halo Wars RTS games), but lose most of the playerbase that made the original famous (Halo FPS games on XBox).
I could suggest a Helldivers collectible card game, and pinball game and so forth. The mind reels. Sometimes it’s best to stay on the original path.
