One of the most popular and commercially successful gacha based RPGs of last year, Genshin Impact is finally coming to Sony’s next-generation console, the PlayStation 5. Earlier today, the official Twitter handle for Genshin Impact announced that the PS5 version of the game is coming soon. We weren’t given any release date or a release window. However, players can expect it to release in the later half of 2021.
At current, Genshin Impact is playable on the PS5 platform via backwards compatibility. And now with a separate version in the works, we can expect improved visuals, framerate, loading time and other changes that are only possible with the next-gen consoles.
Here is what Forrest Liu, President of miHoYo had to say on Genshin Impact’s PS5 announcement..
“The PlayStation5 is an ideal platform to enhance the vast open-world featuring in Genshin Impact, allowing the team to incorporate more thoughts and ideas into the game, both now and in the future,” said Forrest Liu, President of miHoYo. “That’s why we’ve been working to bring the native PlayStation5 version of the game to our players as soon as we could.
