Thankfully, developer miHoYo has shed some light on this. The company recently unveiled a schedule roadmap, showing off when they plan to update Genshin Impact through February 2021. This means the game\’s first three patches are already planned out, with miHoYo providing updates every five weeks. So even if players reach the current endpoint of Genshin Impact\’s main quest, there\’s going to be plenty of new stuff to do very soon.
Thanks to a new schedule roadmap shared by developer miHoYo, fans know exactly when to expect new content in the game. It appears that the first update, Patch 1.1., will be arriving soon on November 11th, 2020. Details are pretty scarce right now, but Patch 1.1 will bring a new event called \”The Unreturned Star.\” Presumably, other new content like additional weapons and new playable characters for Genshin Impact will also be released, but miHoYo hasn\’t confirmed anything else yet.
Patch 1.2 is scheduled to release on December 23rd, 2020. This patch will include a new area, called Dragon\’s Ridge, as well as events in the new zone. Genshin Impact\’s Patch 1.3 is set to release on February 2021, and it will have new events concerning the Sea Light Festival. Additional details weren\’t shared yet, but developers did mention a festival (possibly the long-rumored Genshin Impact Halloween event) was postponed due to unforeseen circumstances. The patches will also include bug fixes and reported crashes.
This means Genshin Impact updates will regularly occur every five weeks, similar to how miHoYo updates their other current game, Honkai Impact 3rd. Additionally, these updates will happen on Wednesdays. For now, that\’s everything confirmed for new content in Genshin Impact.
