The free-to-play RPG game from Chinese studio miHoYo, Genshin Impact was the fastest to gross $ 1 billion on mobile. It easily surpassed games such as Pokemon GO and PUBG.
The popular free-to-play RPG game Genshin Impact, which debuted last year, continues to generate incredible revenues. According to the figures announced by the research firm Sensor Tower, the game managed to generate $ 1 billion in revenue in six months only on mobile platforms. Genshin Impact thus achieved the fastest mobile game record to reach $ 1 billion.
Among the games that Genshin Impact left behind are productions such as Pokemon GO, Lineage M, PUBG Mobile and Clash Royale. It took 9 months for Pokemon GO to reach $ 1 billion in revenue, and 16 months for PUBG Mobile to reach $ 1 billion. Honor of Kings, another popular game on mobile platforms, reached $ 1 billion in 18 months.
Sensor Tower also said that Genshin Impact is currently the most revenue generating game on mobile platforms (not including China). Accordingly, the daily income of the game is around 5.8 million dollars. However, when looking at the profit, it is stated that PUBG and Honor of the Kings are ahead of Genshin Impact.
The countries where Genshin Impact, which has become the most popular RPG of mobile platforms, earned the most revenue were China ($ 302 million), Japan ($ 278 million) and the USA ($ 189 million), respectively.
Developed by Chinese studio miHoYo, Genshin Impact can also be played on PC, PS4 and Nintendo Switch, as well as mobile platforms. The figures in our news belong only to the App Store and Play Store, but we know that the game has also achieved great success on PC, PS4 and Switch. We can say that miHoYo developers are swimming in money right now.
