The Genshin Impact 2.6 livestream will be happening soon, and leaks from the beta have already pointed at what fans can expect to see. As usual, the Genshin Impact Special Program livestream is expected to take place about two weeks before the next update arrives. Here\’s what to know about the latest Version 2.6 leaks and rumors, as well as when to expect the Genshin Impact 2.6 livestream to air.
HoYoverse keeps its Genshin Impact updates to a six-week schedule, meaning the release date for Genshin Impact 2.6 should be March 30, 2022. The Special Program livestreams typically air on Fridays about one and a half to two weeks before the update drops. This means the Genshin Impact 2.6 livestream will happen on Friday, March 18, 2022. An official announcement has been made, announcing the livestream for March 18 at 8 am UTC -4.
The Special Program livestreams for Genshin Impact usually air live on the game\’s official Twitch channel, and then it\’s typically uploaded to its official YouTube channel a few hours later. The Genshin Impact 2.5 livestream started at 7 am ET/4 am PT, as have many of the most recent broadcasts, but the airtime for the Genshin Impact 2.6 livestream is earlier. The official announcement can be found on Twitter.
What To Expect At The Genshin Impact 2.6 Livestream
During the 2.5 livestream, concept art for The Chasm was shown off and the new area was officially confirmed for Version 2.6. Additionally, the official social media accounts for the game showed off new images of Kamisato Ayato for Genshin Impact 2.6, where he is expected to be the newest 5-star playable character. Given that HoYoverse usually releases images of new characters around livestreams, it\’s highly likely that the characters for Version 2.7 will get revealed on social media around this time, too.

New quests, weapons, and events are also expected to be announced during the Genshin Impact 2.6 livestream, and leaks for characters like Yelan and Heizou could be officially confirmed as well. Thus far, numerous leaks have pointed to the 2.6 Special Program livestream debuting on March 18, 2022 – and given the timing of the past livestreams, this makes sense. The Genshin Impact 2.6 livestream should air live on Twitch at 8 am UTC -4, keeping with the traditional early morning broadcasts for this kind of program. Thankfully, fans will only have to wait a couple of more days to watch the livestream and see what\’s coming next.
