• "Genshin Impact" is now available on PS4, iOS and Android devices
  • The game is set to release on the PS5 soon
  • Rumors have it that the "Genshin Impact" PS5 version and its release date would be announced at the PlayStation event

"Genshin Impact" is a phenomenal game that achieved a lot of things in just a short span of time, and industry watchers anticipate that the game's native PS5 version would arrive soon with an announcement happening at the upcoming PlayStation State Of Play this month.

A few days ago, Gematsu reported that the game's native PS5 version had been rated by the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee. This suggests that an announcement is imminent, and the best platform to do it is at a PlayStation event. Chinese gaming studio miHoYo has not yet announced the native PS5 version of "Genshin Impact."

The game was featured at the September 2020 PS5 Showcase, a nod to rumors of its possible announcement at this week's event. Senior Director Sid Shuman announced in an official blog post that the broadcast would showcase new updates and deep dives for ten games scheduled to release on PS4 and PS5. Fans are hoping that the new port would be a part of that update.

At the time of this publication, "Genshin Impact" is playable on the PS5 through backward compatibility with the game's PlayStation 4 version. With the game's native PS5 version, players would experience better graphics and faster loading times. The PS5 has the best technology that could further elevate players' overall gaming experience.

Given the immense success of "Genshin Impact," a PS5 version is out of the question. The game's upcoming port could feature a more stable frame rate at a much higher resolution. Ratings are not necessarily suggestive of the title's imminent release, but they indicate that the title in question exists.

MiHoYo also announced that "Genshin Impact" would release on Nintendo Switch. The announcement was made in January 2020, a few months ahead of the game's official release in September 2020. Unlike the PS5 version, which has been rated in Taiwan, nothing like that exists in the game's Switch port.

If the native PS5 version of the game would be announced at the PlayStation event on Feb. 25, there is a high possibility of its release date. Fans believe that miHoYo would launch the game's PS5 port sometime this year.
