It's official, Genshin Impact's success is well established. In two weeks, the development studio miHoYo reimbursed the entire cost of developing its game, more than $100 million.

Genshin Impact development costs recouped in just two weeks

Since its international launch on September 28, Genshin Impact has brought in more than $100 million to development studio MiHoYo. It's an incredible worldwide success for the Chinese game.

Several sources claim that the game has grossed more than one billion renminbi (RMB), the equivalent of more than 150 million US dollars in the space of 12 days. The budget for the design of the title having approached this impressive figure, it seems that MiHoYo has recovered the costs incurred for the development of its game without real difficulties.

Genshin Impact would also be the largest global launch ever by a Chinese developer.

And it must be said that the results are well deserved. While we see more and more free-to-play video games in the contemporary landscape, few match the quality of Chinese gaming: an open world RPG with a pleasant graphic style and a lot (really a lot) things to do.

It's completely possible to evolve in the game without having to pay a single penny. It's a free game which is financed by a system of "gacha" style loot boxes. This means that if you absolutely want to unlock a character in the game in particular, you can then buy lootboxes hoping to find this famous character. Be careful because the expected gains are absolutely not guaranteed.

Genshin Impact: Elemental Crucible multiplayer event is now available

Genshin impact, building on its success, recently announced his first multiplayer event. An ephemeral co-op mode that will allow you to collect resources while playing with your friends.
