Developer miHoYo Limited has confirmed that the megahit Genshin Impact role-playing game is coming to Sony PlayStation 5 console this month. Since its launch last year, the mobile RPG has grossed over $1 billion smashing earnings records on its way to becoming a worldwide phenomenon.

According to a statement released on the official PlayStation Blog, the new version of the game is out on 28 April across the globe. Whereas, the PlayStation 5 version will bring 4K resolution, faster load times, and enhanced textures.
