At $100 million revenue, MiHoYo was able to recover the expenses it took to develop Genshin Impact for years in just two weeks—coincidentally making it a massive success, especially as a title hailing from China.
A congregation of information from various sources claims that Genshin Impact has generated the $100 million profit, specifically in 12 days.
Free-to-play but features a gacha-like micro-transactions, this cel-shaded RPG has seen a massive adoption in East Asia as well as the US and Europe upon release.
The success comes despite a controversial development where the game is accused for blatantly copying designs found in Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, much to some going into protest against the game during its early announcements in China.
Intended to be a live service game, it seems that there is a bright future ahead for MiHoYo as Genshin Impact sees expansion and more reception moving forward.
