What's the fuzz all about

Everything began when an unconfirmed leak claimed that the new content of the game would not be coming in time. That means Genshin Impact players won't be exploring new places to explore anytime soon. The developer and publisher MiHoYo did not comment in time for publication.

What Caused #boycottgenshimpact Tag Trending?

Genshin Impact fans are hungry for new content. The game hasn’t gotten an area expansion since December 2020. It's true that there various updates and events, but these additions just don't justify.

Racial issues are also hot topics

Despite the debate seems to get out of hand, players show no sign of dropping the game. They just use the #boycottgenshinimpact hashtag to express years of dissatisfaction. Instead, all of the fans just want Genshin Impact developers to fix what they find problematic.

“#DoBetterMihoyo is more appropriate to use if you don’t actually plan on deleting the game and it also just calls out miHoYo as a company.”
