Genshin Impact 2.7 Update Likely to be Delayed, Official Event Schedule Hints at More Details

Genshin Impact 2.7 should launch on May 11, 2022, but the official event schedule released earlier this week tells a different story.

The May 11, 2022 estimate is based on two main factors:

  1. Ayaka’s banner ends on May 10, 2022. Recent Version Updates have always lasted for 42 days, and May 11, 2022 is 42 days after the 2.6 update (March 30, 2022).
  2. The second wave of banners typically ends when the next Version Update goes live or the day before. Hence, May 11, 2022, seemed like a solid choice that most Travelers predicted to be the date of Genshin Impact 2.7 for months.

However, that date (and all subsequent Version Updates) have been thrown out the window based on the official event schedule for the second half of Version 2.6.

Genshin Impact 2.7 will probably get delayed based on official event schedule information

These following tweets contain various details about:

  • Ayaka’s banner
  • The next weapon banner
  • Various events

Spices From the West was notably absent from this lineup despite the initial advertisements for it in the 2.6 livestream. Serenitea Pot maintenance has no known end date, so it makes sense that Spices From the West is absent. Thankfully, miHoYo was kind enough to offer a replacement in the form of Marvelous Merchandise.

However, the event has a particularly interesting end date.

Assuming that Marvelous Merchandise doesn’t go into Genshin Impact 2.7, then that means there will be no unique character banner from May 10 to May 13. That’s a longer time period than what has previously happened in this game, making it seem rather strange.

But why the delay?

The most commonly speculated and likely reason for Genshin Impact 2.7 being delayed is due to COVID-19. Its headquarters are in Shanghai, and there isn’t anything else ongoing over there that gamers would be privy to regarding any other possible reasons. Given that it’s a real-life event, there is no telling on how it will affect the game’s timeline.

If it causes the next version update to be delayed past May 13, 2022, Travelers will hopefully be polite and understand that it’s out of miHoYo’s control. It’s vital to note that miHoYo has not officially commented on this situation regarding when the next Version Update is scheduled to happen.
