Developer HoYoverse just recently revealed on their official Twitter account that the next Version Update for Genshin Impact has been delayed to an unspecified date. This is the first time that a Version Update has had a delay. Although the official tweet says the reason is due to “project progress,” fans are speculating the delay may have something to do with the recent lockdown that has hit the city of Shanghai, China.
The official Twitter stated:
Due to project progress, the Version 2.7 update will be postponed. For detailed information on the date of the new update, content adjustment plan, and compensation, please stay tuned for upcoming announcements.
UPDATE (May 5th): The developers have announced that Version 2.6 will be officially entering Phase III, with the previously absent Spices From the West event making an appearance from May 14 to June 7, after being mysteriously replaced with the Marvelous Merchandise event.
Players have also awakened this morning to a surprising sight: Both the Heron of the Court and Epitome Invocation banners now display that they will end in 240 days, but the developers have stated that this is a placeholder, and urges players to keep an eye out for future announcements regarding the end date of both banners. Furthermore, a compensation of 400 Primogems, 1 Fragile Resin, 7 Hero’s Wit, 16 Mystic Enhancement Ore, and 120,000 Mora will be issued every week to all players who are Adventure Rank 5 or higher.
A full infographic of the contents of Phase III was also posted on their official Twitter account here:
