Microsoft wants to make its own Genshin Impact for Xbox

Sources say Microsoft regretted letting the game fall into Sony’s hands

Microsoft is working on releasing its own Genshin Impact style game. According to information published by Reuters, the North American giant is working on the Chinese gaming market to find the best manufacturer option to be able to develop a game to handle the title produced by MiHoYo.

Since its blockbuster release, Genshin Impact is available for mobile devices, PC and PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. Exclusively for Sony on consoles, the Chinese title has already managed to earn over US$4 billion since its release. This number is approximately 21.27 billion dollars according to the current dollar exchange rate.

When Microsoft – and by extension Xbox – pulled out of plans for Genshin Impact, the company had no choice but to pursue a developer who could work on developing a competitor to the action RPG. Idea is an Asian studio that is already used to working with this type of content.

Sources interviewed by Reuters said Microsoft regrets missing the opportunity to be one of the companies to support Genshin Impact.

“Chinese developers are trying to standardize their development tools, create advanced manufacturing processes, invest in large-scale teams. This helps them gain a competitive edge in reaching a wider audience, both in terms of geography and platforms,” said analyst Daniel Ahmed, a consultancy at Niko Partners.

Microsoft regrets not closing the deal

Sources interviewed by Reuters said Microsoft regrets missing the opportunity to be one of the companies to support Genshin Impact. The games sector of the company founded by Bill Gates tried to recover the losses, but it was too late to restore the chances of bringing the game to Xbox.

If the company regrets pulling Genshin Impact from the console, Sony has no complaints. The same source told Reuters that the company responsible for PlayStation has already managed to raise “a lot of money” through its partnership with MiHoYo. The figure achieved, however, was not disclosed.
