Gamescom 2021 Opening Night Live revealed nothing about Genshin Impact on the Nintendo Switch, which has led to several fans being annoyed online.

Instead, Genshin Impact fans got more news about things they already knew or didn't care about. An announcement, for a music concert and reconfirming Aloy's release for PlayStation users, is disappointing, especially since many players waited several hours for any Genshin Impact news.

Predictably, there are a lot of disappointed Genshin Impact fans, especially on Twitter. It didn't take long for them to write their opinions on the matter, especially since Gamescom 2021 Opening Night Live was a big event full of hours of content to sit through. If a person just wanted Genshin Impact news, they were better off skipping this event.
