On April 24, a knife-wielding attacker was arrested at the offices of Genshin Impact developer miHoYo. While police are still to release an official statement, it is being reported that the man invaded the developer’s Shanghai offices, allegedly with the intent to kill miHoYo’s founders and then himself.
According to reports from Chinese news outlet Baidu (as translated by The Gamer), the alleged attacker sought revenge on miHoYo for reasons pertaining to an update to one of the developer’s other releases: Honkai Impact 3rd. As part of the free-to-play title’s third-anniversary celebrations, miHoYo released a video featuring the cast dancing in “bunny girl” outfits, with said skins and dance emotes being made available in-game as paid DLC, but only in territories outside of China.
