More Than 1,000,000 Players Are Already Pre-Registered To Play Honkai Star Rail On PS5 When It Launches In October

Honkai Star Rail is the next game from HoYoVerse, the team formally known as miHoYo and the studio behind the incredibly popular Genshin Impact.

Star Rail released earlier this year on PC, though its long awaited arrival on PS5 is now just around the corner on October 11, 2023.

Ahead of that launch, players can pre-register to play Star Rail the moment its live, and more than 1,000,000 players have already done so, HoYoVerse announced.

Genshin Impact absolutely took the industry by storm when it launched, soaring past anyone’s expectations simply because no one could’ve seen just how huge it would become.

Nowadays Genshin Impact is still very popular, though Honkai Star Rail looks like it could be a new era in HoYoVerse’s success.

As for HoYoVerse, a new era for the company could be starting in another way. With Unity’s recent changes to its terms of service with its new Runtime Fee, HoYoVerse hinted that it could be looking to switch to its own proprietary game engine, instead of using Unity.

Multiple job listings for game engine engineers appeared in the aftermath of Unity’s announcement, which could be a sign that HoYoVerse will stop using Unity.

If that does happen, then Unity will lose one of its biggest customers across the industry.
