There’s a new update on Genshin Impact earnings, and it has to do with how much miHoYo earned due to mobile players. Sensor Tower’s latest report said it earned $3 billion worldwide. This money comes from people spending money on things like the Genesis Crystals currency and Gnostic Hymn premium battle pass. As a reminder, the game debuted back in September 2020 on Android and Apple iOS devices, as well as the PS4 and PC. Sensor Tower’s information doesn’t take the PS4, PS5, or PC versions into account.
This shows continued growth for the game. For example, one of the first updates noted that within the first two weeks Genshin Impact earned over $100 million.. The mobile versions made $1 billion by March 2021. Sensor Tower also noted it made $2 million from mobile users’ purchases within a year of its release. .
Most of the money came from people in China playing the game. However, the second and third countries spending the most money on it are Japan and the United States, respectively. Slightly more Apple iOS owners are spending money on it than those with Android devices. In China, 65.7% came from the App Store. 50.5% came from Apple’s storefront worldwide.
The data from Sensor Tower also went over Genshin Impact‘s current success on mobile devices in 2022. It noted it brought in $567 million worldwide in Q1 2022. The second most successful game, according to its data, is Lineage W at $272 million during that same period.
This comes as Genshin Impact activities temporarily slow down due to pandemic-related issues. MiHoYo announced that the 2.7 update, which was expected to appear after the Ayaka rerun banner ended on May 10, 2022, is delayed. The company didn’t note how it will handle the game’s schedule going forward. However, it did promise some sort of “compensation” for players to make up for the circumstances. In the past, miHoYo offered Primogems as compensation for bugs and maintenance.
Genshin Impact is available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, PC, and mobile devices. It will also eventually come to the Nintendo Switch.
