An interview with a spokesperson for developer miHoYo revealed that Genshin Impact on Xbox isn\’t in the works, as the studio is instead choosing to focus on plans for additional content, more mechanics, and bringing the game to next-gen. Genshin Impact is an open-world, action-adventure RPG title that draws inspiration from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, and, in the build-up to its release, was mostly criticized by consumers for its close resemblance to the Nintendo Switch game.

The discussion around Genshin Impact has now shifted dramatically, however. In the first four days of its release alone, Genshin Impact mobile downloads hit over 17 million players, and that figure didn\’t include the many people who are choosing to play the game on PC or PS4. Genshin Impact\’s blend of the open-world possibility that entranced Breath of the Wild players, RPG party mechanics that add a ton of depth to its combat, and gacha acquisition mechanics that hook players on trying to get the best Genshin Impact characters have all coalesced into one of the fall\’s biggest stories. Although there\’s a lot of content already present within the game, miHoYo has been transparent about its goal to evolve the game further with live service-style updates.
