When Hoyoverse’s open-world adventure, Genshin Impact, came out back on September 28, 2020, no one could have guessed just how much of a smash hit it would become. Now, two years in, Genshin has become an absolute juggernaut in the industry, with millions of Travelers logging on every day to explore the ever-expanding world of Teyvat and its wonderfully detailed lore.
