One of the biggest titles from last year, is Genshin Impact, which came out last September on PC, PS4, PS5, and mobile devices. Its success has carried over to 2021, and there seems to be no indication of it winding down anytime soon. The latest 1.4 update was announced a few days, and it will bring a lot of new features, and characters. The game made around $800 million last year, and the studio has over 2400 employees as of 2021. Despite the constant stream of content though, Genshin Impact still has a lot of technical problems that users face. These are mostly tied to network issues, though, and it can be hard to pinpoint what exactly is causing it. If you are getting Genshin Impact 403 Network Busy error, here is how you can fix that.
