Upcoming 10 Genshin Impact characters releasing after 2.6 update in 2022

HoYoverse has been continually extending the game's gacha pool since its release in 2020, and there are huge loads of characters who are currently available in the game.

One new character is definitely released with a new patch update, which usually brings a new 5-star character, but if lucky, we get a 4-star character too in the same update. However, it is not necessary that we will get a new character in a patch update only, as HoYoverse have also introduced Genshin Impact characters outside of this schedule (such as Klee).

Even though the current list of characters is not small, there are a lot more Genshin characters scheduled to show up in the game in the coming days and a couple of these characters have been announced officially.

Recently, a new Genshin character Ayato was introduced by the devs who will be joining us in the 2.6 update, and as per the official announcement, the 2.6 update will be released on March 30. However, HoYoverse is yet to reveal any details about a certain amount of Genshin Impact characters that are rumored to join the list soon.

So let's go through the coming soon Genshin Impact characters list that is all set to make their debut in Genshin 2.6, 2.7, 2.8, and further updates more interesting.

Upcoming Genshin Impact characters

Let's begin with the one that has been confirmed to show up in the upcoming 2.5 update.

Genshin Impact Kamisato Ayato

Genshin Impact Ayato is the senior sibling of the previously released character Ayaka and is the head of Kamisato Clan, and furthermore fills in as the Yashiro Commissioner.

It's quite a known fact that Kamisato Ayato has been in rumors since September 2021, prior to the release of the 2.1 update and then several known Genshin leakers affirmed that Ayato's release is scheduled for the 2.6 patch.

It was claimed by the leakers that Ayato will be shown on the 2.5 Livestream on February 4, and indeed the leakers were right. Prior to the Genshin 2.5 Livestream, HoYoverse released the official Genshin Impact Ayato drip marketing.

Genshin Impact Yelan

Another rumored character on the list is Genshin Impact Yelan. Earlier leakers shared a screenshot of a strange and unknown female character from a Genshin Impact Story Cutscene of Moonchase Festival Event and it was claimed that the character's name is Genshin Impact Yelan.

Yelan was said to bear a striking similarity to Fu Hua, a character from Honkai Impact 3 who is truly immortal and one of the last survivors of the former civilization. And fans now have definitive in-game proof of Yelan's existence courtesy of the 2.6 beta leak, since Yelan's model had been shown.

It has been suggested that Yelan will be released in the Genshin 2.7 patch, which is very likely given the model leaks. Yelan will have the "Lady" model, while Kuki Shinobu will have the "Girl" model, and Ayato will have the "Male" model, according to previous reports (which is confirmed to be true).

There are numerous leaks suggesting Yelan will be a part of the 2.7 update but to be certain of anything we will have to wait for a while. Even though Yealn's release date is far away, we do have leaked info about her voice actor, rarity, release date, and weapon type.

Genshin Impact Kuki Shinobu

As per the leaked data, there is another Genshin Impact character, Kuki Shinobu underway. Shinobu is a solid and legitimate character and Arataki Itto (the leader of the Arataki gang) fears her.

She has been mentioned quite a few times by other characters in the game including Arataki Itto and Sayu that describe her as a stubborn and bold character. However, leaks have revealed that she could be joining us sometime in the future update.

We have the Kuki Shinobu banner planned for the 2.7 version, similar to the Genshin Yealn, therefore if the leaks are accurate, the Genshin Kuki Shinobu banner might be released on the 31st of May 2022.

The Arataki Gang's deputy, Genshin Impact Shinobu, looks to be a more sensible and responsible counterweight to Itto's brash nature.

Shinobu has a Girl body type, according to the released skeletal data, and she will be as tall as Ayaka, according to the height leak of Kuki Shinobu by Russian leaker Mia. Itto and Sayu's voice lines about her were also mentioned by the leaker.

The leaked data about her body type and appearance have actually excited the fans a lot who wish to see the character becoming playable soon. Moreover, leaks have also revealed About Kuki Shinobu lines to give new hope to the fans.

Genshin Impact Heizou

Genshin Impact Heizou is a (self-proclaimed) detective from the Tenryou commission and is Sara's colleague, and furthermore has been mentioned quite a few times by other characters in the game.

Genshin Heizou was first mentioned in the voice lines of Kamisato Ayaka and by his distant elder cousin Kano Nana and now has been found in an avatar file having a body of a teenager and height similar to Yan Fei.

As per the leaked data, it is certain that Genshin Heizou will be an Ameno character as various Uncles on the internet are stating the same thing right now.

Furthermore, Jitte will be one of Heizou's weapons, according to prominent leaker @lumie, but it will not be his primary weapon. Heizou declares himself a top detective, therefore it's only reasonable that he'd utilize one of these one-of-a-kind weapons.

If the leaked data is to be believed, then it is indicated that Heizou's release is scheduled for the Genshin 2.8 patch, suggesting that players will have to wait until the 2.8 patch (June 22), which is likely to be the final 2.x patch before the 3.0 patch. Leakers have additionally revealed his body type and release date to the fans.

Genshin Impact Dendro Archon

Genshin Impact Dendro Archon is another character who has been in rumors for quite some time now.

Players have been looking forward to the introduction of Teyvat's seventh element - Dendro, and the Sumeru area in the Genshin Impact for a long time. And hence, several theories have circulated about the possible characters that may be released as playable in the near future.

Given that Raiden Shogun, the Inazuma's Archon was only unveiled shortly before the Electro area was introduced to Genshin Impact, it's improbable that gamers will be seeing the Dendro God before the region's introduction.

The next destination for Genshin Impact players is Sumeru, the Dendro Archon's domain. Sumeru has grown in popularity mainly because the Dendro aspect has yet to be fully explored in-game. The Traveler is currently hunting for their lost sibling in Genshin Impact's overarching plot, and in order to do so, they are seeking out each nation's Archon, which implies Sumeru's Dendro Archon will be introduced shortly.

According to Zhongli, Sumeru's Archon is known as the Lesser Lord Kusalani, and she is known as the God of Wisdom. Her other name is Flower Archon, so it'll be fascinating to see how it connects to her character.

Leaks have also hinted at Genshin Impact Dendro Archon's appearance and release date.

Genshin Impact Yaoyao

Genshin Impact Yaoyao was the junior discipline of Xiangling under the same master chef. She became an assistant for Ganyu since then though. In the game, Yaoyao has been introduced as an NPC character.

Yaoyao was first revealed in an official Genshin Impact artwork, alongside Qiqi, the Cryo playable zombie character. After that, there hasn’t been a lot of information about Yaoyao.

However, the leaks claim that Genshin Yaoyao is going to be the first playable Dendro character ever in the game which clearly indicates that if the leak is true then it will take Genshin Impact to the next level!

Genshin Impact Baizhu

Genshin Impact Baizhu initially appeared in the game during "Guizhong", the Archon Quests Chapter 1, Act 2. Baizhu of Genshin Impact is the owner of a popular pharmacy in the Liyue region known as Bubu Pharmacy. Several characters in the game come to Baizhu for his novel, yet compelling medicines.

Genshin Impact Baizhu, a Dendro NPC in the game was suspected to be released as a playable character sometime in the future, however, there were rumors that fans will soon get to explore Genshin Impact Baizhu's abilities again. Baizhu's return is something that will get plenty of fans energized.

With the addition of a new significant area named Sumeru, Baizhu, Yaoyao, and Kusanali will most likely be tied. All of these characters are supposed to have Dendro vision, which is currently the only feature that no playable character has.

Baizhu has previously appeared in a number of quest lines related to the Liyue region, whereas Yaoyao, the sole character from the game's original beta who has yet to be included in the playable roster, is a Dendro user. The God of Wisdom Kusanali, as a new Genshin Impact Archon, is slated to appear alongside Sumeru and serve as its protector.

Genshin Impact Cyno

Genshin Impact Cyno is a scholar from Sumeru Academia who helped Collie in the manga game. Now Cyno was originally showed up in the Teyvat Chapter Storyline Preview, which displayed various upcoming characters.

Actually, the possibility of Cyno showing up in the game as a playable character comes from the fact that he is a polearm wielder from Sumeru, and this Sumeru region is rumored to be released in the Genshin 3.0 update.

However, only time will tell the fate of Cyno, as we will have to wait almost half a year to finally get the Sumeru region release date.

Genshin Impact Collei

Genshin Impact Collei is one of the primary characters from the Genshin Impact manga, however, she is quite different from the characters in the game as Collei didn't have any abilities when she was born.

Her manga story says Collei's parents gave her to a Fatui scientist - Barnabas who was trusted by the parents, but he tried to transform Collei into a test subject for his brutal experiments. However, after some time, Collei figured out how to get away from the Fatui's grip, and now she erratically roams through Teyvat.

The Genshin Collie leaks claim she will be introduced as a playable character in the game at some point, and the leakers were additionally able to datamine Collie's Elemental Burst gadget.

Genshin Impact Lyney and Lynette

Now let's talk about those characters who were initially hinted to be playable but were never released in the main game.

Genshin Impact Lyney and Lynette are a pair of twins who are supposedly dressed like magicians.

Genshin Impact Lyney and Lynette during the Teyvat Chapter Storyline

Genshin Lynette is a young woman having violet eyes, pale skin and wears a short dark cape attached to her clothes with a bow, whereas Genshin Lyney is a young man having violet eyes, pale skin, with braided style, and can be seen wearing a top hat and a black cape with a red ribbon.

This pair of Genshin twins actually hail from Fontaine, a region inspired by France, and were actually introduced to the players in the Teyvat Chapter Storyline Preview, which displayed various upcoming characters.

Recently it was leaked that HoYoverse's current progress is on 3.4 and early Fontaine, so if the devs actually release these characters in the game then it would be quite interesting to see the pair in action as the speculations hints at them having an ability to switch places with one another in battle.

Genshin Impact Dainsleif

Genshin Impact Dainsleif has been defined as the self-proclaimed prophet, who has the keys to many of the world's greatest secrets and specifically of the lost region of Khaenri'ah.

Dainsleif was one of the very first characters that were confirmed to be playable and were introduced as a Genshin Impact character during the Tokyo Game Show 2020 stream to celebrate the global release of the game. However, the devs never released Dainsleif in the main game as a playable.

Recently, Dainsleif has become a topic of discussion among the players, thanks to the constantly flowing leaks that reveal info about the upcoming update. Earlier, leakers suggested that there's a possibility that the 2.6 update will bring back Dainsleif.

Tough the leakers were proven to be true as 2.6 Livestream announced the Genshin Dainsleif 2.6 Archon Quest - Requiem of the Echoing Depths Chapter: Act II, the fans who were waiting for him to be playable were actually disappointed.

Other than the above-mentioned, we also have another list of Genshin Impact characters who will show up after the Genshin 3.0 update.

Genshin Impact characters coming after the 3.0 update or Sumeru

Along with the new location, leakers suggest that the 3.0 update will bring a flood of new characters, and we were also informed about the names of a few of them.

To begin with, it states that the Genshin 3.0 update will include two new male characters and a large number of female characters as is the case with the current roster, where the number of female characters is almost double the number of male characters.

However, the name of the initial two Genshin 3.0 male characters is unknown at this time.

We have another two new male Genshin characters likely to join us after v3.0, and their names are:

  • Djajeet
  • Tighnari

And the new female Genshin characters coming after the 3.0 update include:

  • Nafs
  • Dori
  • Nahida

Check out details on these new Genshin characters coming after the release of the Sumeru region.

These were the new Genshin Impact characters that are highly discussed in the Genshin community and have a great potential to be released anytime in the game. So all we can do is wait to see when HoYoverse actually reveals every one of them.

Moreover, the entire Genshin Impact game is filled with challenges, quests, events, so players have an ample amount of content to explore and acquire lots of Primogems in order to save and invest them in their desired upcoming Genshin characters. And we also have Genshin redeem codes that offer free substance for the players to collect.
