Rumors and leaks have been prevalent in the weeks leading up to Genshin Impact\’s 1.2 update. Even before 1.1 characters like Zhongli and Xinyan have released, leaks of allegedly new playable characters have shown up online over the past few days. Presumably, these new characters will appear in the 1.2 update for Genshin Impact.
Prior to the release of Genshin Impact\’s 1.1 update, miHoYo shared a public roadmap of scheduled and planned future content going through February 2021. This gives fans a pretty good idea of when new story content is coming to Genshin Impact, as well as new events like the Gentry of Hermitage Wish that starts on December 1st. It\’s also perfect for stirring up excitement within the fandom, since players know when to expect updates – even if it\’s unclear what content is actually releasing with each announced Genshin Impact patch.
Although very little has been confirmed about the 1.2 update so far, fans do know its release date. Officially, Genshin Impact\’s 1.2 update will start on December 23rd, 2020, depending on a player\’s country and time zone. This means the newest patch comes exactly six weeks after the 1.1 update, keeping with miHoYo\’s plan to release new content into Genshin Impact every six weeks.
For now, there\’s plenty for fans of Genshin Impact to be excited about. With two playable characters coming to the game tomorrow, and the 1.2 update releasing December 23rd, there\’s a lot to look forward to. Hopefully, a new trailer showing off some of the 1.2 content will be released by miHoYo soon.
