“This year marks miHoYo’s tenth anniversary. Since our inception, guided by the mission of Tech Otakus Save the World, we have invested continuously in animation rendering, artificial intelligence, and cross-platform development technology to bolster our research and development capabilities. We are committed to publishing our games globally across console, PC and mobile platforms, owing to our thriving in-house distribution capabilities.”

“We have gained a plethora of game development and operations experience as a result of Genshin Impact’s recent global release, which we can harness to create even higher-quality games to our players. Montreal is home to a thriving game development community and is well-known for its world-class universities. We deeply value the expertise and creativity that the local ecosystem provides and believe it will empower miHoYo to create games with their imagination.”
