There is still no official release date for the Nintendo Switch version of Genshin Impact.
Nintendo Switch Release
Originally, a Nintendo Switch port of the game was supposed to launch in September 2020, when Genshin Impact came out of beta.
Unfortunately, this version was delayed, and so far, there has been no official release date set.
With Genshin Impact 2.0 out in the wild, there is still no word on when fans will be able to get their hands on the Switch version.
As of right now, it is not expected a Genshin Impact Switch port will be happening anytime soon.
Rumors have been spreading that miHoYo may be waiting for the release of the Switch Pro, with the developer possibly having issues with a Switch port due to the limited power of Nintendo's console compared to the resource needs of Genshin Impact.
