The game developed by the Chinese company miHoYo censors words like Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Falun Gong.
Being a game that comes from China, it is no surprise that developers have to abide by the strong censorship trends that come from the regulations of the government of that country. Recall that censorship in China has hit other products such as Animal Crossing: New Horizons , a title that was withdrawn from digital stores in that country after Hong Kong activists have resorted to Nintendo’s title as a way to spread their protests.
Outside of this controversy, Genshin Impact enjoys great success. The miHoYo game surpassed 10 million launch downloads , and 17 million mobile downloads with potential earnings of $ 50 million.
