KEY POINTS

  • "Genshin Impact" 2.1 will feature Raiden Shogun in its first character banner
  • Baal will be accompanied by the four-star character Kojou Sara
  • Last week, MiHoYo revealed other contents that are coming to the game via Update 2.1

Industry insiders have offered new information about the next characters coming to "Genshin Impact" after Yoimiya.

"Genshin Impact" Update 2.1 is scheduled to roll out on Sept. 1 and it will bring a lot of surprises to the game. While miHoYo already revealed the characters arriving in the next patch, it did not share information about the ones that would come after that update.

Fortunately, an industry insider who goes by the name uBatcha shared details about the character banners that are reportedly scheduled for "Genshin Impact 2.2 and beyond.

According to this tipster, the first character banner that would be released in Update 2.2 would feature Yae Miko. An important character in Inazuma, Yae Miko is believed to be the chief priest of the Grand Narukami Shrine. He is a five-star Electro character who reportedly wields a Catalyst.

After Yae Miko, miHoYo would reportedly launch a character banner rerun, which will feature the five-star Cryo Bow wielder Ganyu. She is one of the best Cryo archers in the game, so any player who wants to have a main DPS character could consider getting Ganyu on her rerun in Update 2.2.

It is also believed that a Hu Tao rerun would follow. The five-star Pyro polearm wielder is one of the fan-favorite characters in "Genshin Impact." Her second rerun is definitely one of the highly anticipated banners in the hit gacha game. According to leaks, Hu Tao might return to the game in December.

Finally, the final character to be released on this roadmap would be Albedo. This five-star Geo character that wields a Sword is believed to be the second character banner that would be released in "Genshin Impact" 2.3.

Last week, miHoYo revealed that Ball is the first featured character that would be introduced in Update 2.1. The Raiden Shogun will be accompanied by Kojou Sara. After that, Kokomi will be introduced in the next character banner, which is anticipated to launch on Sept. 21.

It is worth noting, however, that none of these details are official. Fans should therefore temper their expectations and take these details with a grain of salt.
