Zenless Zone Zero PS5 PlayStation

Update: Just as we published this article, HoYoverse has announced that pre-registration for the game is available now. As is common for the developer, it'll be tracking the total number of players who sign up, and will be promising bountiful in-game rewards if it reaches its ambitious 40 million players milestone. Officially, the release date is still "2024".

You can pre-register on the PS Store by adding the game to your wishlist through here.

Original Story: HoYoverse's eagerly anticipated next PS5 gacha game, Zenless Zone Zero, has had a potential release date revealed via Apple's App Store. As things stand, the game is expected to be released in 2024, but it could be sooner than anticipated. How does the next effort from the Genshin Impact creator arriving somewhere around 3rd July sound?

Spotted by IGN, while the release date on the App Store does read, "this content may change without notice, and the final product may be different”, the timing would line up quite nicely with the pre-planned technical tests currently taking place on both PS5 and PC.

Of course, nothing is official until confirmed by HoYoverse, but applications to take part in this console testing just closed on 17th April, and Honkai itself followed a similar pattern of development; a 3rd July release is not out of the realm of possibility, if perhaps a tad early, but we'll just have to wait and see.

What do you think? Are we grasping at straws here, or are the signs beginning to add up? Let us know in the comments section below.
