Are there private servers in Genshin Impact?

Be careful how you play your games!

Genshin Impact is an online gacha game that requires players to be online at all times. This is due in part to the fact that items in-game must be purchased with both real and in-game currency. If players are playing on a private server, then they are removed from the marketplace where those in-game purchases are then essentially made free. which bypasses the normal means of acquiring certain weapons and characters which has made them frowned upon by the developers and some die-hard fans as a whole.

Even though these private servers exist, you will never find one that is made available by the developers themselves.

Why aren't there private servers in Genshin Impact?

The short answer is because developer HoYoverse has made private servers completely illegal. While it may not seem like a big deal to obtain items that most people would need to grind for hours or pay out of pocket for, it is. Actively working against the system that was developed to give everyone a fair chance at obtaining items and characters is directly against their terms of use.

It's also important to note that playing the game and spending money is the only way for the developers to make a profit. Otherwise, there isn't any other way for the developers to monetize the free-to-play game.
