Genshin Impact continues to attract new players as its social media presence grows on platforms such as Twitter and Reddit. Almost two years after the launch, the developer of miHoYo, together with the Genshin Impact community, celebrates a new milestone on social networks and releases a new work of art depicting two Inazuman characters.
Genshin Impact was first released on September 28, 2020 and quickly became a successful game as a service for miHoYo. Two weeks after the launch, Genshin Impact recouped its development costs of approximately $100 million, and the annual budget of the game increased to $200 million in 2021. Major updates will be released within months and years of launch, offering players plenty of new content to explore. . During this time, the number of Genshin Impact Twitter followers has grown significantly, as millions of players have joined the community. The success of the game also marked the beginning of the branding of the miHoYo HoYoverse for all major games.
Genshin Impact surpassed four million followers on Twitter, prompting Paymon to celebrate with the community through the social media platform. To celebrate this milestone on social media, the Twitter account posted a new artwork featuring Kamisato Ayaki and Eimiya from Genshin Impact, two beloved characters from the Inazuma region. Ayaka is pictured in her trademark blue combat kimono, and Yoimiya is pictured with a firework purchased from Naganohara Fireworks.
The latest milestone in social media occurred a few weeks before the release of Genshin Impact version 3.0. The new update adds another important region to explore, Twilight, and continues the main story of Genshin Impact. In addition, Genshin Impact version 3.0 adds new characters and Sumeru weapons that can be summoned using event wishes. miHoYo is expected to share additional information about Genshin Impact version 3.0 around August 13, according to the well-known leader SpendYourPrimos.
Genshin Impact’s success on social media reflects the healthy state of open-world role-playing. Players continue to cause a stir around new updates and content, and the general optimism of the community continues to be a boon for miHoYo. A special live stream for the upcoming 3.0 update is likely to contribute to the excitement by officially introducing new characters and gameplay.
Five million Twitter followers doesn’t seem far-fetched for Genshin Impact, given the schedule of updates and information. Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see if miHoYo continues to develop new Genshin Impact content in good faith, attracting both strictly free players and active spenders. If miHoYo continues to gain momentum, more Genshin Impact players may consider diving into new development studio games such as Zenless Zone Zero and Honkai: Star Rail.
Genshin Impact is now available for Android, iOS, PC, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. A version for the Nintendo Switch is in development, the release date has not been confirmed.
