Genshin Impact sees continued success, raking in almost $400 million in two months


Wins Apple's iPhone Game of the Year award

There's no sopping MiHoYo's Genshin Impact. In the two months since the fantasy adventure's release, Genshin Impact has raked in an incredible $393 million USD on mobile platforms - as reported by the statisticians over at Sensor Tower.

For the period September 28-November 28, Genshin Impact's numbers push the mobile edition past several other major titles including Pokemon GO, PUBG Mobile, and Coin Master. Even more shockingly, this figure does not include any revenue made on the Android platform in China, believed to be Genshin Impact's most lucrative market.

In related news, Apple released its Game of the Year award winners, with Genshin Impact taking home the gong for Best iPhone Game, just one week after the title won the Google award for Best Game of the Year. The impact (no pun intended) of MiHoYo's anime release has been made immediately apparent within the industry. With new content and a Nintendo Switch port on the cards, it's very possible that 2021 is going to be Genshin Impact's year.
