HoYoVerse reveals a Genshin Impact anime project is in development with Ufotable

During Genshin Impact’s version 3.1 preview stream, HoYoverse dropped a surprise announcement to the fans, which is a Genshin Impact anime series. The company announced that they are working with Japanese anime studio Ufotable for the animated series that is based on the game.

As this is a “long-term project”, fans should not expect something to be released anytime soon but this could also mean that HoYoverse’s work with Ufotable will not be a short-term fling. With this, we can expect that there will be multiple projects on the way.

With Japan’s reputation when it comes to anime, it's not that surprising that non-Japanese developers have seeked their expertise with these kinds of projects. HoYoVerse also produces their own in-house animation with MiHoYo Animation.

As of the moment, it is only known that a Genshin Impact-based anime series is in the works with no release date or distribution channel specified yet.
