Genshin Impact Is Coming To PS5, But miHoYo Has No Plans For Xbox
Genshin Impact will eventually be on PS5 and Nintendo Switch, but it's not coming to Xbox Series X.
It’s a not a surprise by now, it’s obvious Genshin Impact is coming to PS5 at some point. While no official announcement from miHoYo happened yet, the game was most notably featured during the PlayStation 5 Showcase event on September 16.
Moreover, Twinfinite in an interview asked miHoYo if Genshin Impact could be coming to next-gen. miHoYo answered there are plans for PS5, but not for Xbox. Genshin Impact is already available on PC, PS4, mobile, and a Switch version was announced. Looks like Xbox One and Xbox Series X will be the sole platforms it won’t be coming to.

Genshin Impact is incredibly popular since its launch on September 28, with over 20 million downloads. In particular, the action RPG is incredibly hype in Japan, with the Japanese Twitter account for the game reaching over 500K followers. Official Twitter profile pictures for each character in Genshin so far were published too. Be sure to check the DualShockers interview with miHoYo as well.
Updates for Genshin Impact are coming every six weeks. Version 1.1, the first update, is expected on November 11. Another update on December 23 will add the Dragonspine area. The next main region of Teyvat to be added is Inazuma. However, that’s a long way ahead, and won’t be until March 2021 at the earliest, seeing the current roadmap only goes until Version 1.3 in February 2021. Lastly, a players feedback survey is also ongoing. Be sure to fill it to ask for better gacha rates.
