The Genshin Impact official Discord server is full due to popularity, so developer miHoYo had to launch a second server to accommodate all the new players.
Developer miHoYo announced the Genshin Impact official Discord server is full last week, with the cumulative number of users hitting 800,000 total users and thus reaching the cap for any one particular Discord server (or possibly the limit they imposed, this part is unclear).
The new Genshin Impact official Discord server is called “Genshin Impact Tavern,” and at the time of writing has already hit 155,000 users already. With this rate of user adoption, miHoYo might have to start a third official Discord server at some point – or start purging inactive users.
Discord has been increasingly popular in the recent years, so much so that Sony Interactive Entertainment announced a minority investment into the company – alongside an official partnership to bring the platform to the PlayStation Network. You can read more about that here in our previous report.
The most recent update to Genshin Impact, its much awaited 2.0 update, is now available – adding the new Inazuma region, new playable characters, new gear, new gameplay mechanics, new quests, and more.
Genshin Impact is available and free-to-play on Windows PC (via the official website), PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Android, iOS, and coming soon to Nintendo Switch. In case you missed it, you can find our review here (we recommend it!)
