MiHoYo Has Plans For Genshin Impact's Future, But That Doesn't Include Xbox

An online game maker planning to produce more content for its game might come as a shock to some -- and if you're one of them, I'd like to ask why -- but MiHoYo confirmed in an interview with IGN that it's going to do just that for Genshin Impact. Granted, Genshin Impact does resemble a single-player game more than most, but still.

The listed improvements are understandably nebulous, with mention made of more characters, character-specific missions, a third city, and more side quests. Notably, no new mechanics are on the horizon. Something else that's not in the works are plans for an Xbox version. Genshin Impact is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, and the Switch, and there are plans to bring it to next-gen consoles, but, as a spokesperson said, "We currently don't have any plans for an Xbox version of the game."

IGN speculates as to the reasons for this, but whatever they are, it's a little strange to not even be on the table. Maybe the game's success, even in regions outside of Asia, will make MiHoYo change its mind. It might be too late for the Xbox One, but I wouldn't be surprised to see it land on the Xbox Series S or X at some point during those consoles' life cycle.
