Being free to play, Genshin Impact has had reached quite the popularity, and with the power of in-game marketing, that success was highly likely to transfer into powerful earnings. SuperData Research has discovered that Genshin Impact was the highest-grossing game for October.
Genshin Impact from miHoYo was October’s highest-grossing game. The title, which was released on September 28 on mobile, PlayStation 4 and PC, is an unprecedented international success for a game made by a Chinese developer. Genshin Impact features monetization mechanics commonly found in mobile games like collecting characters through gacha (where users pay for the chance to get random in-game items) and limited-time events. However, gameplay inspired by console role-playing games and action-adventure titles attracted players who may have avoided mobile gacha games in the past.

PlayStation 5 players can now also delve into the game, considering that the update has brought support for the PS5. Genshin Impact can now run at 60 FPS on the next-gen console. Furthermore, the game is prominent to future updates that will bring even more content, which aligns the hype and success of the game.
