Also, in the first week of its release itself, Honkai Star Rail earned $42 million, a very impressive figure for a game in its infancy. The game has offered everything it promised to its players and therefore the favorable reviews from the first wave of the players who played the game garnered even more players for the game. According to the revenue graph by AppMagic, the top three consumers of Honkai Star Rail in order are China, Japan, and the USA. These 3 countries contributed to 76% of the game’s total revenue.

Factors that contributed to the success of Honkai Star Rail

According to the stats, Honkai Star Rail beat its main rival in its gacha category Genshin Impact, from the same developer HoYoverse at launch, which is a significant achievement in itself. Another contributing factor is the story and lore of the game, which is more compact than its counterpart Genshin due to it focusing less on the open-world aspect and more on the story.

Also, Honkai Star Rail launched characters and unlockable characters in the game, two 5-star characters, namely Selee and Jing Yuan. Them being fan-favorites, a lot of players invested heavily in the game in order to acquire them, which also greatly contributed to the huge revenue earned by Honkai Star Rail.

Honkai Star Rail has no doubt made it obvious that it is here to stay and will pose a serious threat to its fellow competitor Genshin, but it will also mean more profit for the developer HoYoverse. The statistics graph of Star Rail is still going upward, and in the coming days will soon rival the biggest games in the market right now both in terms of overall popularity and revenue.
