Since its launch, the title has ranked as the No. 3 revenue generating mobile title globally, behind Honor of Kings from Tencent at No. 1 and PUBG Mobile–localized as Game For Peace in China–also from Tencent, at No. 2.

China ranks as the No. 1 revenue generating country since Genshin Impact’s global launch, generating $973.3 million to date, or 30.7 percent of global player spending, on iOS alone (Sensor Tower does not track spending on third-party Android stores, such as those found in China). Japan ranks No. 2 with 23.7 percent of lifetime revenue, while the United States ranks No. 3 with 19.7 percent. While the title can be considered a global success, Genshin Impact generates most of its revenue in Asia, which accounts for close to 70 percent of total player spending to date.

The App Store makes up the lion’s share of player spending, accounting for 65.7 percent of total revenue, thanks in large part due to revenue from iOS in China. Google Play, meanwhile, accounts for 34.3 percent of total player spending. Outside of China, the share of revenue is much closer, with the App Store accounting for 50.5 percent, while Google Play makes up 49.5 percent.

Genshin Impact continues to be one of the world’s most lucrative mobile games, having consistently brought in $1 billion every six months on average.
