Genshin Impact has consistently been in the top three mobile games when it comes to revenue across several months. Most should be aware of the game, especially since it had a dominant 2021. It has won several mobile game awards, such as "Best Mobile Game" at TGA 2021.

Unsurprisingly, 2022 has also been a good year for Genshin Impact. It has regularly been in the top three grossing mobile games in January, February and March 2022. It is important to note that all of this data comes from Sensor Tower, therefore, other data-based companies might showcase different results.

The first piece of data to look at comes from Sensor Tower's infographic on "Top Mobile Games by Worldwide Revenue for March 2022." There are three categories:

  • Overall Revenue
  • App Store Revenue
  • Google Play Revenue

This article's premise is based on the first category. According to Sensor Tower, the top ten overall mobile games for March 2022 were:

  1. Honor of Kings
  2. PUBG Mobile
  3. Genshin Impact
  4. Candy Crush Saga
  5. Roblox
  6. Lineage W
  7. Coin Master
  8. Uma Musume Pretty Derby
  9. Three Kingdoms Tactics
  10. Garena Free Fire

Honor of Kings and PUBG Mobile have been above miHoYo's most well-known title for all of 2022 thus far. However, Genshin Impact was also third in the App Store and fifth in Google Play.

The following character banners were active in this time frame:

  • Yae Miko (February 16 - March 8, 2022)

Sensor Tower also had the following to state regarding this game's dominant growth:

"Genshin Impact has had a strong start to the year, generating $208.7 million from player spending in January, a rise of 37 percent year-over-year. The figure marks the title’s third best ever month for revenue... January 2022 saw update 2.4 go live early in the month, while on January 25, special Event Wishes went live that included improved drop rates for popular characters such as Ganyu and Zhongli, which saw the title generate $15 million in a single day on mobile."

It's been a great year for this popular mobile game thus far, and it isn't even halfway done yet. One has to wonder if it will continue to be in the top three for the rest of the year.
