Genshin Impact is a widely successful gacha RPG still going strong after its initial release, so, when did Genshin Impact come out? Released as a free-to-play game, HoYoverse’s Genshin Impact quickly accrued a cult-like status among fans. For more information on Genshin Impact’s initial release and future console release, read on.

  • If you’d like to pick up the game for yourself on switch, read our Genshin Impact switch release guide for all the information we know so far on the future Switch release.

Genshin Impact Release Date

Originally, Genshin Impact was released on mobile, PC and PS4 on September 28, 2020, perfectly timed for those of us wishing to chase away COVID-19 blues and lockdown boredom. Before its launch, HoYoverse gave access to a closed beta to a select few who went on to promote the game and further raise hype in the HoYoverse community.

Since its launch, the game has consistently released updates including new regions, challenges, weapons, events, and characters, keeping fans thoroughly hooked and a stream of new content. The two regions of Mondstadt and Liyue were the only playable areas on launch. Now with Inazuma and the future Sumeru update on the horizon, there is never a lack of content to keep Genshin Impact players occupied. With the Nintendo Switch release soon, it seems as though Genshin Impact is here to stay.

HoYoverse celebrated its first anniversary of the game’s launch with a stream of rewards and events for players. As the second anniversary approaches, check back for details on further celebrations to come.
