Genshin Impact 2.5 will be the next major version update for the popular free-to-play RPG. Developer miHoYo has already teased fans with a Yae Miko reveal and the Version 2.5 beta has caused leaks to surface online. In the meantime, many fans may be wondering what Genshin Impact 2.5\’s release date is.
Updates are always a source of excitement in Genshin Impact, since fans can typically expect new characters, events, and areas. There are also quests, weapons, and items that round out the new additions, keeping content fresh and players engaged. In December, miHoYo teased Yae Miko as a playable character for Genshin Impact 2.5, but didn\’t give a concrete release date. In the meantime, rumors that Yae Miko is underperforming have caused some fans to rally together and ask miHoYo to buff her before Version 2.5 releases.
Other leaks from the beta have included a possible new character named Collei and a new enemy type with several elemental variations. Previous alleged leaks also pointed at Kamisato Ayato in Genshin Impact 2.5, although those rumors have appeared to die down in more recent weeks. Still, updates for the game usually add in at least two new characters, so it\’s highly likely someone other than Yae Miko will be debuting. For those eager to learn more about the next update, here\’s everything to know about the Genshin Impact 2.5 release date.
Genshin Impact 2.5 Release Date & What To Expect
miHoYo updates Genshin Impact every six weeks with a major patch. Because of this, it\’s fairly easy to predict when the new content will arrive. With this schedule, that means the release date for Genshin Impact 2.5 will be February 16, 2022. This places the update exactly six weeks after the release of Genshin Impact Version 2.4, which is the current version of the game.
Of course, depending on region and time zones, the time at which the update goes live can differ. For most users in the U.S., the update usually occurs in the afternoon, with maintenance being finished during the night or early morning hours. This can differ, though, depending on the size of the update. Still, this means the Genshin Impact 2.5 release date is just over a month away at the time of this writing, so fans who are eager to see Yae Miko become playable (or discover what new things Version 2.5 has to offer) won\’t have to wait too much longer. A livestream reveal for 2.5 will likely take place about two weeks earlier, providing even more details.
