KEY POINTS

  • "Genshin Impact" Update 1.4 will reportedly feature two character banners
  • The first character is apparently a returning one
  • A Livestream for Update 1.4 is scheduled on March 6 

After countless speculations and leaks, Hu Tao finally arrived in "Genshin Impact" via the Moment of Bloom Banner. While players still have their hands' full pulling wishes to get the latest playable five-star pyro in the game, some are already looking forward to the next featured character. Thanks to recent leaks, fans now have the idea of who to look forward to in "Genshin Impact" Update1.4.

Hu Tao Main's Discord Server recently leaked that miHoYo plans to release two character banners in "Genshin Impact" with the rollout of Update 1.4. The first five-star character would be Venti, his first return in the game since "Genshin Impact" was launched in September. This information aligns with the leak shared by industry insider M1NTSUBA.

The Twitter user claimed that their information comes from a data mining activity conducted by a reliable Chinese leaker. The said source has a proven track record and has accurately leaked in the past details about the Albedo Banner, Dragonspine, Ganyu, Xiao and the Lantern Rite. Venti rerun is apparently confirmed happening in Update 1.4, the insider claimed.

Diluc will be the featured character in the banner following Venti, the insider added. While M1NTSUBA believes Diluc will arrive in the game, others believe that Rosaria will launch after Venti. If this is true, Rosaria is the only new character arriving in "Genshin Impact" in the next update. If the Rosaria rumors are not accurate, then fans will not see any new character in Update 1.4.

In December, reliable "Genshin Impact" insider NEP NEP shared on Twitter that Ayaka could be the next five-star character to launch in the Update 1.4 character banner. The said update could debut on March 17. However, the insider asked fans to take the information with a pinch of salt since things could change until the character banners' official release.

It is worth noting that these details are leaks, and like other leaks, fans should temper their expectations and take them with skepticism. As of press time, miHoYo has not said anything related to Update 1.4 or its character banners. The gaming studio is apparently holding Update 1.4 Livestream Announcement at 8 p.m. server time on March 6.
