In the first two years of Genshin Impact’s existence, China was the top market for player expenditure, accounting for $1.2 billion, or around 33% of total revenue, through iOS alone (Sensor Tower does not track spending on third-party Android stores, such as those found in China). The United States came in third with 17 percent, while Japan came in second with around 24 percent of the total revenue.

Genshin Impact currently earns $1 billion every six months on average, effectively making it stay consistently in the top 5 highest-grossing mobile games worldwide. Genshin Impact is now one of the most expensive live service games, with the Chinese studio spending almost $200 million annually to sustain and develop it.
