Genshin Impact is a gacha-based, action role-playing game developed by miHoYo. The game initially launched on September 28, 2020, on platforms including PS4, PC, Android and iOS. Genshin Impact will also make its way to Nintendo Switch in Fall 2020. We don’t have the exact release date but, as per some reports, the game will get a beta release on Switch before the launch.
A few days ago, miHoYo revealed an official roadmap for Genshin Impact. The developers are currently working on multiple version of the game to ensure a constant flow of new content and quality of life changes.
