Honkai Star Rail's First Major Update Announced Alongside Huge Mobile Revenue Figures
Well, it's to no one's surprise that Honkai Star Rail mobile revenue has already reached over $100 million. As impressive as that is though, it hasn't been able to beat Genshin Impact's launch revenue, which managed to reach almost $250 million.
However, it's still an impressive feat considering the fact that Honkai Star Rail has been out for just under a month. With HoYoverse being one of the most popular gaming companies in the world right now, these large figures aren't surprising.
Are Whales the Main Contributors?
While this mobile revenue figure is a product of the spending of players worldwide, it's important to note that gacha games tend to harbour those called "whales".
This term is used for those who are more than comfortable with spending extremely large amounts of money on in-game currency- they definitely contribute to a large portion of the overall revenue.
Honkai Star Rail 1.1 Live Stream
Additionally, the Honkai Star Rail 1.1 live stream is due to take place on May 26 at 12:30 BST. We expect to hear more about the success of the game so far, as well as sneak peeks at brand-new content.
You can watch the live stream over on Honkai Star Rail's official YouTube channel!
With the teaser photo for the live stream, we can see the characters, Silver Wolf, Yukong, and Luocha - perhaps these characters will make an appearance on the upcoming banners? Furthermore, similarly to Genshin Impact's live streams, we will more than likely be treated to special announcements regarding the version 1.1 update, such as brand-new areas, quests, events, and more!
