miHoYo, the renowned creator of blockbuster games like “Genshin Impact” and “Honkai: Star Rail,” has always been a beacon of innovation from the Chinese gaming industry. Their latest endeavor, securing a computer software copyright for a new title named “miHoYo HYG Game Software,” has been turning heads and sparking discussions across gaming forums and social media platforms.
The “HYG” project, a topic of speculation since last June’s leak, represents a bold departure from miHoYo’s signature anime-style gaming. According to reports, this new venture adopts a chibi (Q-version) cartoon aesthetic, a distinct shift from the acclaimed visuals of “Genshin Impact” and “Honkai: Star Rail.”
“miHoYo HYG Game Software” is poised to enter the simulation management genre, an area popularized by games like “Animal Crossing.” This move is a testament to miHoYo’s adaptability and commitment to bringing fresh, innovative experiences to the gaming community.
Registering the computer software copyright for “HYG” is not just a formality; it’s a significant indicator of the game’s development progress. However, it’s important to temper expectations, as the dynamic nature of game development can lead to unforeseen changes.
Not too long ago, the team at HoYoverse scrapped its GTA-like game called Project SH. The team from Project SH is reportedly now pouring their energy and creativity into Project HYG.
HYG is the same project that had a significant leak last June. Many of the game’s characters, assets, and gameplay details were leaked. The creators brought down the hammer on the leakers but it was already too late.
