In addition to all the new games and continued successes, Genshin Impact is the game that has been talked about the most on Twitter in 2021 so far.
That may come as a surprise, but the game is especially popular in Asia. In 2020, the game was in eighth place of most tweeted games, even though the game was only released in September 2020.
There are even more relatively unknown games that are in the top ten. What about Ensemble Stars! At number three and Knives Out (a mobile battle royale game without any link to the film) at number six. Check out the full list shared by Twitter below :
The most-tweeted video games in the world:
- Genshin Impact
- Apex Legends
- Ensemble Stars!
- Final Fantasy
- Animal Crossing
- Knives Out
- Monster Hunter
- Fate/Grand Order
Many of these games were also in the top ten last year. In 2020, Animal Crossing was number one, followed by Fate/Grand Order at number 2 and the Japanese mobile game Disney: Twisted Wonderland at number 3. Remarkably, Final Fantasy was in fourth place, without specifying which Final Fantasy game. It’s alright.
Last week was E3, and then relatively much more was tweeted about games. Breath of the Wild 2 was the most talked about game on Twitter during that period. Followed by Elden Ring, Battlefield 2042, Halo Infinite, and Forza Horizon 5.
