Due to the upcoming update, the Genshin Impact PS5 version will be ready as soon as the PS5 arrives.
Developer MiHoYo today revealed its plans for Genshin Impact 1.1; the biggest update of the free game will be released on November 11th, which will add new missions, characters and seasonal events, called “Unreconciled Stars.” It will also increase PS5 compatibility for the game, because the console will be available the next day, so the timing is just right.
According to MiHoYo, Genshin Impact will be able to run on PS5 “through backward compatibility, improved graphics and faster loading times.”
When you log in to the game again, the initial loading screen may also be very large, so improvements are welcome. I doubt that Genshin Impact will be completely exempt from the loading screen on PS5, because it still needs to be an online service-based game to complete the connection to the server, but hope that the waiting time for you to log in is reduced.
Since all your progress is linked to your MiHoYo account, it should be relatively easy to switch from playing on PS4 to PS5. Just in case, you should still make sure you have convenient account details when switching.
