Genshin Impact Version 2.7 is on the way and a number of leaks have revealed details about the update’s new characters and possible release date. Here’s everything you need to know.

Genshin Impact Version 2.7 introduces two new characters and a lot of new content for Travelers to delve into. While the 2.6 update will see the release of Ayato and the highly anticipated reveal of The Chasm, HoYoverse still has a lot of secrets up its sleeve.

However, a number of 2.7 leaks have given Genshin Impact players an early look at what could be coming in the game’s future. It’s still early days, but we’ve gathered all the details of Genshin Impact Version 2.7 here for you in one place, so you can prepare for the update now.


Is there a release date for Genshin Impact version 2.7?

The Genshin Impact 2.7 update will be released after The Chasm.

While HoYoverse hasn’t officially revealed Genshin Impact 2.7’s release date yet, that hasn’t stopped us from making an educated guess. The 2.6 update will go live March 30, 2022 and will walk for about six weeks (42 days)

With this in mind, we can expect that the 2.7 update for release on May 11, 2022† Of course, like all speculation and rumours, this date may change. We will be sure to update this section once more details are announced.

According to the well-known Genshin Impact leaker, Lumie, Yelan will be released in the first half of the 2.7 update. This probably means Travelers will be able to spend their Primogems on her banner when the update goes live May 11, 2022

HoYoverse recently confirmed that Yelan has Hydro vision, which she uses to wipe out her enemies. Early datamines suggest Yelan will wield a bow, while leaked renders of Yelan also further support it.

Yelan is said to be a “mysterious person who claims to work for the Ministry of Civil Affairs”, while often appearing in various guises. How she’ll use her Hydro abilities remains to be seen, but for now that’s all we have about the Valley Orchid.

Kuki Shinobu Banner in Genshin Impact 2.7

Rumor has it that Kuki Shinobu will appear in the second half of the 2.7 release, which will likely be revealed on June 1, 2022† Unlike Yelan, the current Genshin Impact leaks have discovered that she is a 4 star character.

HoYoverse revealed that Kuki Shinobu is the deputy leader of the Arataki gang. This user of the Electro-sword is often responsible for controlling Itto’s antics. While no Kuki Shinobu gameplay has been revealed, Sayu notes that the Mender of Tribulations is Itto’s “little sidekick”, stating that “birds of a feather gather”.

It’s uncertain if Shinobu will have unique interactions with Itto or if her abilities will partner with the 5-star Geo Oni. We’ll likely hear more details about the character’s abilities in the coming weeks and months.
