HoYoVerse, the Genshin Impact developer also known as miHoYo, is teasing a new game titled Zenless Zone Zero. Not much is known about it at the moment, but an official reveal is slated for May 13, 2022. A “Record of Unknown Time” teaser site for Zenless Zone Zero has been put up in the meantime.
Dear citizens, a sub-Hollow disaster has occurred in the district you are traveling to.

The Zenless Zone Zero teaser site is a peculiar one. It displays an old antenna TV on top of a VCR set. Surrounding it are several posters, a subwoofer, a few VHS tapes on a rack, and a small calendar counting down to May 13.
Visitors can turn the top knob to turn the TV on and watch a brief clip of breaking news. This most likely hints at the game’s premise. The clip shows that part of a city is starting to be swallowed up by some sort of black dome, with parts of a building submerged in it. The news reporter refers to this phenomenon as a “sub hollow.” Public security set up a control zone and is evacuating residents in the meantime.
Although HoYoVerse has not listed a genre for Zenless Zone Zero yet, industry analyst Daniel Ahmad shared on Twitter that it will be an “ACGN-themed shooter game.”
HoYoVerse continues to work on Honkai Impact 3rd, Genshin Impact, and the unreleased Honkai Star Rail. Recent events forced them to push back update 2.7 for Genshin Impact.
Zenless Zone Zero has no release platforms or release date yet.
