Genshin Impact, miHoYo's open-world title was released back in September 2020 and throughout the long term, it has created a huge impact on players and figured out how to quite possibly be the most famous games out there.

Genshin has already bagged several rewards under its name in terms of its popularity and is currently available on different platforms including Mobile, PC, PS4, and PS5, with a Nintendo Switch version being in development.

From Mondstadt to Liyue to Inazuma, travelers are gradually dunking their toes into all that Teyvat has to bring to the table and the game has hooked up its players to collect as many anime-styled characters and weapons as possible.

However, we have different regions in the game that are yet to be released in the main game and new leaks suggest that players will have to wait for quite some time before they get to explore one of these regions and the 2.8 will be the final update before the version 3.0.

Genshin Impact 3.0 update is next after the 2.8 update

Recently, new in-game files were found on CN Test Dispatch Servers that became quite popular soon after it was posted on the web media. It was showcased in the leaked file that version 2.8 is going to be the last patch before Genshin 3.0 update.

If you observe carefully, there's no Genshin Impact 2.9 update, however, these are mere listings and a user on the WFP Discord channel stated that this leak doesn't actually imply that "those versions are even being worked on yet, it could just be that they have the space ready for when they do begin development for those versions."

Although the leak mentioned nothing about the upcoming region, various fans have connected the leak with the release of an upcoming region.

The new Genshin Impact region that we are talking about is none other than the Genshin Sumeru region. This has been in rumors since the launch of version 2.2, where the leakers gave players a sneak look at what Sumeru City will resemble.

New Genshin Impact 3.0 Sumeru region leak

The update timeline leak was posted on a Genshin Subreddit, where the op revealed a few additional information, some of which highly suggests that Sumeru (due to Dendro being the element of the Archon there) could be coming in the 3.0 update.

The comment by the op mainly hinting at Sumeru said:

  • mihoyo's current progress is on 3.4 and early Fontaine
  • Dendro element will buff Yae. A male dendro support completely made for Yae will be released. You can already judge this by her EM passive. Electro Dendro is based on EM.
  • Dendro artifacts were already ready long ago so adding them in game won't be a problem but mihoyo is undecided as to when
  • Apple Islands re run is real, will be in 2.8 and should feature a character from Sumeru (most likely COLLEI). Not sure if this will make the place permanent or temporary as there have been stuff about a Mondstat DLC.
  • The dendro archon is like Kazuha (element buffer support)
  • The standard banner will receive changes before/during Sumeru

Now with the way the speculations are being made, it is suggested that if miHoYo is actually planning to add Chasm in 2.7 and the Golden Apple Archipelago rerun in 2.8, then getting Sumeru region in the 3.0 update is highly likely as it doesn't make sense to bring a new Sumeru region along with any other Genshin region.

And if Sumeru's release date is to be guessed then it will be released on August 3, 2022 (with 3.0 update), if miHoYo continuously follows its usual pattern.

If we go by miHoYo's usual pattern, then the following are the release date of the upcoming Genshin Impact updates:

  • Genshin Impact 2.5 - February 16
  • Genshin Impact 2.6 - March 30
  • Genshin Impact 2.7 - May 11
  • Genshin Impact 2.8 - June 22
  • Genshin Impact 3.0 - August 3

Moreover, back in November when several leakers were speculating that Sumeru will come out in the 2.4 update, Uncle Dumb Dumb stated, "If you say [Sumeru region] is in 2.4, it's fake. The exact update it will come out had already been decided because it [TN: referring to the development timeline?] is already at 3.0 now."

To further prove that he was in the right direction, he additionally revealed, "I'll leave you some scraps, don't quote me, I'll delete in a while. Before 3.0 you will be able to see [Area] and golden apple archipelago rerun. After Ayato, there is one male and one female character, but don't ask, they're not done yet."

Now the latest leaks are also supporting the leak from Uncle Dumb Dumb, as we have new crumbs of Ayato and Golden Apple Archipelago Rerun.

Adding to the list of speculation, we have another leaker, Uncle Pikachu who recently stated on the WFP channel that the Sumeru region would come out in August, which clearly aligns with the speculations of fans and the above-mentioned leak.

However, Uncle Pikachu is no credible leaker, and many fans have stated that it was an obvious guess.

We have been waiting for quite a while to get some updates on the Genshin Sumeru region and it does feel good to finally get some new info on it. However, players will have to wait almost half a year to finally get the Sumeru region release date.

However, the data has come from the leaks that are subjected to change, so, players should think about it with a grain of salt as miHoYo can at any time decide to make changes in the main game.
