Let's begin with the leak on Genshin Impact 2.8 characters.

Genshin Impact 2.8 characters leak

There have been numerous leaks talking about the unreleased Genshin characters, and one such character is Shikanoin Heizou.

Shikanoin Heizou, similar to Kujou Sara, works for the Tenryou Commission as an investigator. In numerous broadcasts, he was depicted as somebody who tries to complete duties on his own.

As per the data miners, Heizou will be an Anemo character, raising the total count of Anemo users in the title to 8. His rarity was found to be 5-star, and his release date was allegedly postponed until the Genshin Impact 2.8 update.

Heizou will be the last character from Inazuma to be available in the 2.8 release, according to multiple prominent leakers.

Yet it remains to be seen, how correct these leaks are.

Genshin Impact 2.8 banners leak

Interestingly leaks claim that the Genshin 2.8 Update will not include any new characters. This would be unexpected because many people are predicting Heizou to be included in the 2.8 update. It's possible that the leaker is alluding to the fact that there would be no new 5-star characters in the update, but the former is also a possibility.

Talking about the Genshin 2.8 banners, another leak claimed that 2.8 would be a full rerun patch and that is exactly where the speculations on no new characters began.

Earlier, an unverified leak from @TheSuSLeaker suggested that the developers have updated their timeline and new changes are being made to the characters roster. In his post, the leaker said, "It is currently being discussed as to whether Ayato will be the best LAST or SECOND TO LAST five-star character to be released prior to Version 3.0. The Inazuma cast is almost fully released."

Furthermore, revealing the timeline he said:

  • "2.6 - Ayato (2nd to last 5 Star before 3.0).
  • 2.7 - Yelan (5 Star)
  • 2.8 (full rerun patch) (As mentioned previously- since a 2.8 has been added before 3.0, the increasing due reruns are being moved into 2.8) "

In addition, it is indicated that the next new character will be released in version 3.0, which will follow the Genshin 2.8 Update.

So far we have a lot of characters left who are yet to get a banner rerun, including the much-awaited Kazuha rerun. Additionally, earlier, a leak was posted on the WFP channel asserted to be coming from Uncle DD's alleged alt account. The release date of the upcoming banner reruns was revealed via this leak and, the following was claimed:

  • Genshin Impact 2.6 - Ayato+Venti first half
  • Genshin Impact 2.6 - Ayaka second half
  • Genshin Impact 2.7 - Itto rerun (uncle that leaked xiao's artifact numbers)
  • Genshin Impact 2.8 - Kazuha rerun

Currently, the characters due for reruns before 3.0 are Klee, Kazuha, Yoimiya, Itto, and Shenhe. Moreover, the Genshin 2.6 banner rerun release date has been proven true with the 2.6 Livestream, so players can hope to see the Kazuha banner rerun 2022 in the 2.8 update.

Genshin Impact 2.8 region rerun leak

There are many regions in the title which have to be revealed in the main game, and new leaks say that one of these regions, Golden Apple Archipelago, will be seen in the Genshin 2.8 update, which will be the final patch before version 3.0.

The Golden Apple Archipelago is not a new name for Genshin Impact veterans, as the location was originally released in the 1.6 ptach.

The Genshin Impact Golden Apple Archipelago was the largest summer festival in the game, with beaches, boating, and other enjoyable activities. It would be exciting for players to stay on the islands for the entire summer if they so desired.

The Golden Apple Archipelago will be released in the 2.8 patch, according to Genshin Impact 2.8 leaks, and given that the 2.8 update is slated to arrive in the summer, this sounds realistic. Moreover, the leak from Uncle DD's alleged alt account claimed:

  • Golden Apple Archipelago rerun in 2.8
  • Male character "expected" to appear in 2.8 or 3.0
  • Dendro [female child] character release in 3.1

Aside from the Golden Apple Archipelago, the Sumeru region, as well as the Dendro characters, will make their appearance in the title with the Genshin 3.0 update. So, fans will not need to wait long until we learn more about the game's future Dendro characters.

These are all of the details that have been revealed thus far regarding the future Genshin Impact 2.8 update, including the release date, characters, banners, maps, and more.

The data, on the other hand, comes from the 2.8 leaks, which are subject to change given that the 2.6 patch still has a long way to go. So, until HoYoverse officially publishes details on Genshin 2.8 update, gamers should take it with a grain of salt.
