Genshin Impact has proven itself to be one of the fastest-growing RPGs since its release in September 2020 and is showing no signs of slowing down. Available for PC, Mobile, and consoles, it was the most-tweeted-about title of 2021, and it hasn’t even crossed its second birthday.
Sensor Tower revealed that the game has pulled in over $3 billion in revenue, and that is just from the mobile version of the game. Through the App Store and the Google Play Store, where players can download the game onto their phones, Genshin Impact is slowly on its way to becoming one of the highest-grossing games of all time despite being in the market for only 18 months.

The developers have taken care to cater to its fanbase, releasing new updates every month or two in order to keep up with the players who catch up to all the existing content in the game.
According to the report, players all over the world contributed to making Genshin Impact the top-earning title for the first quarter of 2022. While the players are almost equally divided in the App Store and Google Play Store downloads, 30% of the players are based in China, with Japan coming a close second at 24% and the US at 21%.

In the first and second place, we have Honor of Kings and PUBG Mobile, but how long is it really before Genshin Impact outruns them too?
The honor of Kings was a 2015 release, while PUBG Mobile was released in February 2018, so Genshin Impact is definitely here to stay, and perhaps even take over the top position of the most profitable game in the video game industry. In addition to immersive gameplay, the game has an enchanting background soundtrack with a vast open world that lets players roam the lands of Teyvat.
