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 game 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 to Sumeru, 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 is 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 3.8 will be the final update before version 4.0.

Genshin Impact 4.0 update is next after the 3.8 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 3.8 is going to be the last patch before Genshin 4.0 update.

If you observe carefully, there's no Genshin Impact 3.9 update, however, these are mere listings and Ubtacha on Twitter stated that this leak doesn't actually imply that version 3.8 will be the last one. He stated, "Up to 3.8, though they could still add 3.9 in there... We're still a ways off after all."

Although the leak mentioned nothing about the upcoming region, various fans have connected this new 3.8 leak with the release of an upcoming region.

The new Genshin Impact region that we are talking about is none other than the Genshin Fontaine region. This has been in rumors since the launch of the game as a pair of Genshin twins hailing from Fontaine was actually introduced to the players in the Teyvat Chapter Storyline Preview, which displayed various upcoming characters.

Prior to the info on Genshin Impact 3.8 update being the last one, it was rumored that the 3.x patches will go on till version 3.7 only.

The update timeline leak was posted on a Genshin Subreddit, where the op revealed a few additional pieces of information, some of which highly suggest that Fontaine (due to Dendro being the element of the Archon there) could be coming in the 4.0 update.

The comment by the op mainly hinting at Fontaine said:

  • Dispatch servers now show 3.7 [3.8 now] as the last patch before 4.0
  • These are the same dispatch servers that showed 2.8 is the last patch before 3.0 so they do have some reliability.
  • They had added 4.0 a long time ago and at the same time, Uncle Apple who is very reliable leaked some stuff about the Fontaine map indicating it was being worked on.

The Inazuma region was launched by HoYoverse in July 2021, and leaks claimed that it will continue until August 2022, till the release of Sumeru. Now, of course, that has proven to be true, so if we are to guess Fontaine's release date, then it is possible that we won't reach Genshin Fontaine until about July-August 2023 if our Sumeru expedition lasts as long as Inazuma's did.

And if Fontaine's release date is to be guessed then it will be released on August 16, 2022 (with the 4.0 update), if miHoYo continuously follows its usual pattern. The following are the estimated release date of the upcoming Genshin Impact updates:

  • Genshin Impact 3.5 - March 1
  • Genshin Impact 3.6 - April 12
  • Genshin Impact 3.7 - May 24
  • Genshin Impact 3.8 - July 5
  • Genshin Impact 4.0 - August 16

New Genshin Impact Fontaine region leaks

Back in August when players were anticipating Sumeru's release, @BLANK shared some new leaks on Genshin Impact Fontaine. He actually shared a snippet of Fontaine's lore, stating "some of the parts have already been revealed by Liben, but I can assure you that this line is said by a certain 'mysterious girl'."

The leaker with regards to Fontaine revealed, "To the north of Sumeru, where it connects with Liyue's Qiaoying Village lies the land of Hydro, Fontaine. Under the most highly developed technology of Tevyat, Fontaine views judgment and justice with utmost importance."

Further adding to this, a new Questionable leak on Fontaine revealed, "Above the valley lies Qiaoying village, water flows upstream, the character can go by boat from the mountain feet to the top(village). The water is from Fontaine, and good tea+clear water makes Qiaoying village famous amongst Teyvat. At the foot of the valley is a small town on the water, think china (Jiangnan) style. In the end, there's a pier, where the water route leads to Fontaine."

It has also been stated that in version 3.6, we will see the Sunken Jade valley along with Baizhu and a new female village leader. We will also encounter a new Fontaine playable male character in the same update.

We have been waiting for quite a while to get some updates on the Genshin Fontaine 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 Fontaine 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.
