Zenless Zone Zero’s first teaser suggests the reveal is happening this Friday – so this week we’ll see Genshin Impact developer HoYoverse’s next anime game. Apparently, it’s another open-world game, and it might be a shooter this time around.
The studio previously known as MiHoYo currently has two major games in operation – Genshin Impact and Honkai Impact: 3rd, with a new strategy RPG game called Honkai: Star Rail in the works. Aside from the weird office anime girls, these are all the projects we know of so far – but it looks like HoYoverse has another new game on the way.
Zenless Zone Zero is that game, and it has a new countdown page with a short teaser revealing that it takes place in a modern city – and deals with strange circular voids called Hollows appearing around this city. Beyond that, there’s a timeline with Friday, May 13, clearly circled – so presumably the full Zenless Zone Zero reveal will take place later this week.
While there aren’t too many other details, this appears to be the game being co-developed at HoYoverse’s new Montreal studio, which opened last year. The game was described as a “triple-A open-world action-adventure game with shooter-based gameplay in a living, breathing paranormal world”, thus somewhat different from Genshin Impact.
This is the ACGN-themed shooting game that miHoYo develops. https://t.co/p5bYNWcAtp

As for HoYovers’ most popular game, the Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu banner’s release date is approaching, although the 2.7 update was delayed this week.
