Genshin Impact leaker uncle UBatcha hinted on Twitter that a past character will be getting a rerun in Version 2.2. Furthermore, at least one new character will be released as well according to their information.

UBatcha tweeted: “As Inazuma takes a Bow, there should be a pretty Chill re-run coming in 2.2 and along with that there’s at least one new character. I’ll be sharing more as and when I can. Keep in mind this is all subject to change.”

If you’ve been playing Genshin Impact and kept a close eye on all the characters released since release, the first character that obviously comes to mind is Ganyu. Seeing she’s the sole 5-star Cryo and Bow character in the game right now. Speaking of which, Ganyu will be joined by Aloy from Horizon in Version 2.1, distributed for free.

It’s also important to note that there have been several rumors of a Ganyu rerun these past months. However, as far as I know, it was always hopium: baseless rumors or extrapolation of data shared by data miners such as Dimbreath. Who ended up having to state multiple times there was nothing hinting at a Ganyu Rerun. But with UBatcha’s tweet now, this is the first time we’ve got something tangble.

Upcoming characters in Genshin Impact

Nowadays, miHoYo officially reveals on Twitter the next version’s characters soon after a new version goes live. So if Genshin Impact Version 2.2 ends up adding a new character, we’ll know who it is a few hours after Version 1.1 drops, supposedly on September 1, 2021.

The Raiden Shogun, Kujou Sara, and Sangonomiya Kokomi were revealed to be the new playable characters of Version 2.1 on July 22, one day after Version 2.0 was released. So stay tuned for the week of September 1.

Genshin Impact should soon announce its live stream for Version 2.1, which will add more Inazuma islands according to leaks, and a fishing system. At least two new bosses will be coming as well, dropping Ascencion materials for the Shogun and Kokomi. You can always reach me @A_iyane07 to discuss Genshin or Japanese-stylized stuff in general.
