Genshin Impact developer miHoYo has achieved a significant milestone by entering the top 15 largest private companies worldwide with a valuation of $23 billion. This achievement places miHoYo as the most valuable game developer on the Hurun Research Institute's sixth annual Global Unicorn Index, which ranks private companies and startups valued at least $1 billion.

Hurun Research Institute's Global Unicorn Index

According to a report by Game World Observer, the Hurun Research Institute recently released its sixth annual Global Unicorn Index, which ranks private companies and startups valued at least $1 billion. The index includes companies founded in the 2000s that are not yet listed on public exchanges. miHoYo's valuation of $23 billion places it 12th on the list, between Citadel Securities and Telegram. This marks a significant climb for miHoYo, which has jumped 91 positions from the previous year when its market cap was $7.2 billion.

The ranking also includes other companies in the gaming industry, such as Niantic, Dream11, and Haegin. However, miHoYo stands out as the highest-valued privately-owned gaming company on the list.

Genshin Impact's Role in miHoYo's Success

Genshin Impact has been a global phenomenon, attracting a massive audience and contributing significantly to the company's valuation. The game's success has helped establish miHoYo as a major player in the gaming industry, with the company continuing to develop new titles and expand its offerings.

Genshin Impact Version 4.6 Update

In addition to its impressive financial achievements, miHoYo continues to expand its portfolio with updates and expansions to Genshin Impact. The upcoming release of version 4.6, titled "Two Worlds Aflame, the Crimson Night Fades," introduces exciting new features including a new recruitable character, Arlecchino, and a captivating storyline set in the world of Fontaine.

Version 4.6 Features

Arlecchino, the fourth Fatui Harbinger, brings fresh dynamics to the game with her unique abilities and story quest, "Ignis Purgatorius." Players can expect an immersive experience as they delve deeper into the lore of Genshin Impact through Arlecchino's narrative.

Furthermore, version 4.6 introduces players to the new underwater zone of Remuria, offering new challenges and discoveries. Alongside the new zone, players can enjoy a brand-new rhythm game event, adding another layer of excitement to the Genshin Impact universe.

While Genshin Impact continues to thrive, miHoYo remains committed to innovation, evident through the development of new titles such as Honkai: Star Rail and Zenless Zone Zero.
