MiHoYo, the game Genshin Impact founder, spared no cash making the game as its development and marketing budget combined is about $100M. If it can maintain its current pace, it will quickly pay for itself, and then there will be some extra cash. But keep in mind this calculation doesn’t exclude the mobile variation, which has a net revenue of $70M.
