Huxiu, a Chinese technology and innovation information platform recently shared an insightful report reflecting on HoYoverse‘s estimated annual revenue and roadmap for the year ahead. According to the report, HoYoverse is planning to invest 20-30% of the income in a spin-off movie for Genshin Impact, which comes with a “regardless of the profit or loss at the box office” catchphrase reflecting the importance and certainty of the project.
However, the information should be taken with a pinch of salt as there are no official confirmations as of now. GamingonPhone reached out to a HoYoverse spokesperson who denied to comment on this.
HoYoverse planned an animation movie back in the 2019 roadmap
As per the reports by the Chinese technology and innovation information platform, the developers are ready to invest as much as 30% of the total revenues in the development of this film, and that too comes with the developments taking place irrespective of returns from the box offices. This goes to show that the project is rather a high-priority target for HoYoverse to achieve.
Genshin Impact has a huge fanbase around the world, and part of that is because of the inclination toward the graphics and anime-based open-world RPG environment that the game offers for the fans to explore and experience. It will be interesting to see how fans across the globe will like the movie if it is released.
Not all great games can have equally successful movie adaptations, this is something that we have definitely learned from the previous famous game adaptions like Assassins creed and Prince of Persia. The reason is that sometimes gamers are attracted to the game’s mechanisms and graphics more than the story itself. On the flip side, we have seen some great adaptations from video games such as Arcane.
HoYoverse planned an animation movie back at Shanghai Jiaotong University in 2019. It was announced at the year-end conference as part of the future roadmap for the developers. The plans were then dropped with the launch of the Genshin Impact game, which has proven to be a very successful decision. Now the developers are back at it again, with them gearing towards a movie for the franchise “regardless of the profit or loss at the box office”.
