Genshin Impact Has Reportedly Been Delayed for Switch Due to its “Weaker Hardware”

Allegedly, it's still currently targeting a late 2021 launch.

Genshin Impact Update 1.4

Genshin Impact launched last year and immediately saw incredible success across PS4, PC, and mobile devices, so it was hardly ever in any doubt that the game would make its way to other platforms sooner or later as well. Recently, it launched for PS5, for instance. A Switch version has also been announced for a while now, which isn’t surprising, given that the platform is particularly well suited to a game like Genshin Impact, but other than the fact that it will eventually release at some point, very little is known about it. So when exactly is it coming?

Well, it seems like it may have hit some snags during development. Over on Twitter, @GenshinReport, a page that focuses on Genshin Impact leaks and rumours, recently claimed that the Switch version of the game had been internally delayed due to the “weaker hardware” of Nintendo’s hybrid platform, but that it’s still targeting a 2021 launch. There is a chance, however, that the game pushed back a bit more, or even that developer miHoYo ends up making it an exclusive for the rumoured Switch Pro. There have been reports in the past suggesting that the Switch Pro would have a few exclusives, for what it’s worth.

This is, of course, unverified information, so take it with a grain of salt. Given how little has been said about Genshin Impact’s Switch version, however, it seems feasible enough.
