Players of Genshin Impact are asking developer miHoYo for a content roadmap following a crackdown on game leaks. The popular free-to-play RPG has faced multiple leaks ahead of the recent launch of both the Genshin Impact 2.0 and 2.1 updates, with the developer now working to ensure further leaks don\’t spoil the game\’s future plans.
Genshin Impact has skyrocketed in popularity since its release in 2020. The game offers a vast open-world to explore, along with magical storylines, quests, characters, and events, making it a must-play for many RPG fans. The game has become a big target for leakers and dataminers who announce upcoming content for the title ahead of their official reveals from the developer. miHoYo has recently begun cracking down on prominent Genshin leakers, with a number of Twitter users suspended for their datamines. Fans are now expected to see fewer Genshin Impact leaks moving forward, which leaves the game\’s future shrouded in mystery.
YouTuber NewGeek has asked the developer for future content to be revealed with a roadmap, giving players an idea of what\’s coming, without directly spoiling any major surprises. Their plea has been met with support on Twitter, with many believing an outline of future game content would be beneficial for both the developer and the game\’s many players. The user tweeted that, with fewer leaks expected in the future, a roadmap would continue to drive interest in the game without ruining any of the developer\’s plans. The tweet was shared to Reddit by Dehrangerz9 in a post that\’s received more than 20,000 upvotes from the Genshin community. Many commenters have agreed with the sentiment, though whether or not miHoYo will take note remains to be seen.
Mihoyo, since leaks are coming to an end. We would like to receive an oficial ROADMAP containing details about updates.
This would help F2P, Low Spenders and would help Content Creators to keep up HYPE around the game (free marketing).

NewGeek\’s tweet notes that a content roadmap would be especially beneficial for those who play Genshin Impact without spending lots of money in the game. As a free-to-play title, Genshin Impact is playable without additional purchases, though many choose to invest in the game to improve their play experience. As pointed out by several Reddit users, low spenders and free-to-play gamers would be able to better spend their money if they knew what was coming in the future via a roadmap. However, this could potentially mean a financial loss for miHoYo, which might mean the idea never comes to fruition.
miHoYo\’s recent crackdowns on leaks and dataminers could suggest that the developer is planning on revealing something big in the future. Genshin Impact\’s 2.1 update added lots of new content, including the new fishing feature, and leaks for the next big update have already begun. Dataminers have gleaned that a dungeon-like event called Labyrinth Warriors will be coming at some point, but with fewer leaks now expected, Genshin Impact\’s 2.3 update could contain endless surprises for the game\’s many players.
