Genshin Impact Removed the Option to Change Nickname and We Don’t Know Why

This morning, Genshin Impact players woke up perplexed, as the option to edit your Character Nickname, as well as your Signature (a small message below your username), was mysteriously removed from the options menu.

Genshin Impact previously allowed players to customize their traveler’s name and display a custom message on the Signature screen. But now, you cannot change either of those. There is no Notice or official info from developer MiHoYo as to why those two features were removed seemingly out of nowhere.

Many players have filed inquiries to MiHoYo’s Customer Support already, but as of the time of this writing, the option is notably absent from the Paimon Menu.

We will keep you updated on this matter.

Genshin Impact is a free-to-play open-world action RPG that brings players to the visually stunning world of Teyvat. The player takes on the role of the mysterious “Traveler,” who sets off on a journey to discover the fate of their lost sibling and unveils the mysterious secrets of Teyvat along the way.

Genshin Impact is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and will be available on the Epic Games Store starting June 9, 2021.
