The reason is, based on a posting On Twitter, which was uploaded by AppAnnie application researchers, the game was actually downloaded 17 million times in the first 4 days after its release.
The download figures of tens of millions only come from the Android and iOS platforms, not including the PS4 and PC versions.
It is not yet known which platform actually contributed to the number of downloads of the mobile version. It is also not known how many downloads of the PS4 and PC versions of Genshin Impact.
What is clear, note donwload Genshin Impact beat the achievement PUBG Lite which was downloaded 10 million times in 3 days after launching.

Even so, Gensin Impact itself seems unable to beat the number of downloads of other popular games, namely Call of Duty Mobile, Mario Kart Tour, PUBG Mobile, until Fortnite.
The four games were downloaded 100 million, 90 million, 28 million, and 22.5 million respectively within one week of release.
However, it is not impossible that the 17 million downloads increased after one week Genshin Impact available for Android and iOS users.
Analyst from Niko Partners, Daniel Ahmad, estimated that Genshin Impact has also earned around US $ 50 million (around Rp.739 billion) in revenue in the first week after launch.
