The year 2020 has been full of surprises for gamers all over the world. Games like Fall Guys, Among Us, etc. blowing up in terms of popularity wasn’t foreseen by anyone. These two games proved that great graphics don’t always entail great games. Now, there is yet another game that is about to join the ‘Breakout Games of 2020’ club i.e. Genshin Impact.
The game launched for PS4, PC, Android, and iOS devices on September 28. Since its launch, Genshin Impact has been on an upward trajectory. According to the latest statistics, it already has 17 million downloads since its launch. Interestingly, this number just includes mobile downloads for Android and iOS. There may be millions of downloads for PS4 and PC that are still unaccounted for.

This is a stellar achievement for developer miHoYo as it is now the biggest Chinese game launches ever. Although, one industry expert believes that Genshin Impact still deserves more recognition and attention than what it’s already getting.
Industry analyst believes Genshin Impact deserves more recognition
Popular industry analyst Daniel Ahmad voiced his thoughts on Twitter in support of the game. He says “Western games media missed a trick not covering Genshin Impact. The game has been blowing up on Youtube the last month, those that have published articles have seen extremely high engagement and millions have downloaded the game in the past week.”
