Development History / Background:

Genshin Impact is a free-to-play open world RPG developed and published by the Chinese gaming company miHoYo. Development on the game began in January 2017, shortly after the release of the studio's previous title Honkai Impact 3rd. Genshin Impact was announced to the public in June 2019 and the first beta occurred that month. The developers drew inspiration from a variety of titles including The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and the Grand Theft Auto series. Genshin Impact is one the most expensive Chinese developed video games to date, with a development and marketing budget of around $100 million USD.

Genshin Impact remains one of the most popular mobile games in the Western world and easily the most popular 'Gacha game'.

Since its launch in September 2020, Genshin Impact has earned over $3.7 billion in revenue worldwide on mobile devices alone. 33% of that figure came from China, which means the vast majority of Genshin Impact's success is due to its popularity outside of its home market.
