Genshin Impact won’t be getting new endgame content, may be “too anxiety-inducing” for players

The Spiral Abyss may be the only endgame content in the game.

Genshin Impact’s combat system is rife with experimentation and customization, allowing you to create an endless amount of teams that synergize with each other and deals tons of damage. The best teams are a satisfying and chaotic blend of particles and numbers, completely obliterating the enemies that Genshin Impact tosses your way. However, there’s a common complaint that there isn’t enough challenging content to push these teams to the limit, and this doesn’t seem like it will change anytime soon.

HoYoverse in an interview with Gamespot provided players with some insight about what the future may hold for the free-to-play open-world gacha extravaganza, and the responses from the developers are leaving some fans feeling underwhelmed. A particular sticking point: there are no new plans to release further endgame content aside from the Spiral Abyss.

The question of whether there were any plans for new, permanent endgame content was swiftly shot down. There will be no new endgame content because “not everyone is interested in Musk Reef,” said HoYoverse dev. The studio believes that if new difficult content like the Spiral Abyss was released, it “might end up creating excessive anxiety for our players.”

This statement has already caused quite some noise within the Genshin Impact community. Genshin Impact streamer Zy0x took to Twitter to express his disappointment, stating that the news “made [him] so sad,” and Redditors are also weighing in.

HoYoverse seems to be focusing on casual content, such as an upcoming trading card game mode. It’s also worth mentioning that this statement just means new challenging content is not on studio’s radar and may come sometime in the future.
