Attention all Honkai Impact 3rd players, or Mihoyo fans in general, a new game is on the way. Honkai Star Rail’s release date might be unknown as of now, but the title serves as a sequel to Honkai Impact. As such, it’s safe to assume that it’s a JRPG, making it the third major title by Mihoyo, behind its predecessor and Genshin Impact.
Given that Mihoyo has just confirmed the game, it’s safe to say that the Honkai Star Rail release date is some time away. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t speculate on what the game entails before the upcoming Honkai Star Rail beta. Mihoyo officially unveiled the game as part of the Starfire Sonorant concert, which took place as part of the 3rd-anniversary celebration for Honkai Impact 3rd.
Honkai Star Rail will likely feature an open-world, an expansive one at that if Honkai Impact 3rd and Genshin Impact are anything to go by. The latter of which continues to grow, with a new island in Inazuma becoming available as part of the Genshin Impact 2.2 update.
