The first leak comes from Genshin Impact leaker DD (via SYP), who is a known name in the Genshin Impact community. Do note that these leaks are not 100% reliable and they should always be taken with a grain of salt, except for the beta ones which are datamined directly from the game. The latter is rarely wrong, so that is pretty credible.

Genshin Impact 2.8 Leaks: No New Characters, Sumeru Release Details Leaked

Coming to the leak itself, it states that the Chasm region will be split into two parts. This means that what we are getting in the next update is just a part of the Chasm region, and the other part will be arriving in the subsequent update.


What’s more interesting is the fact that the leaker states that there will be no new characters in the 2.8 Update. This is very surprising given that many were expecting Heizou to release in that update. Now it could be that the leaker is referring to no new 5-star characters coming in the update, but the former is a good possibility as well. This is because some leaks had previously stated that 2.8 will be a full rerun patch.

Along with that, it is stated that the next new character will arrive in 3.0, which is coming after the 2.8 Update. If we go by the current schedule miHoYo is following, one can expect the 3.0 Update will arrive in late July or Early August. With the 3.0 Update, the Sumeru region will also be marking its debut in the game, along with the Dendro characters. It shouldn’t be long before we get to hear more about the upcoming Dendro characters in the game.
