Is Genshin Impact on Steam?

As of writing, Genshin Impact is not currently available on Steam. In fact, the free-to-play title is only playable through the official launcher, Epic Games Store, PlayStation Store, and various app stores. 

Of course, this doesn’t mean miHoYo won’t add Genshin Impact to Steam in the future. After all, Honkai Impact 3rd – miHoYo’s other title recently hit Valve’s client last year, enabling PC players to download and play the popular mobile title through Steam.
