A new leak has been making rounds on the internet, leading many players to believe that miHoYo might be working on a 6-star character for Genshin Impact.

miHoYo has been one of the most active developers out there, shelling out updates for its title consistently over a long period of time. It’s almost been a year since Genshin Impact was launched, and we have got a big update every six weeks without any fail whatsoever.

The last update was the 2.0 Update which added the Inazuma region, characters such as Ayaka, Sayu, and Yoimiya, and a plethora of quests, items, weapons, and what not. It is one of the biggest updates in the game’s history and is being critically acclaimed by fans and critics alike.

The 2.1 Update is slated to release in the first week of September, and that is all set to be quite big as well. Apart from the new Inazuma islands, we will be getting characters such as Sara, Raiden, and Kokomi. The Raiden Shogun is one of the most anticipated characters among the lot, and fans are eagerly waiting for it.

Genshin Impact Leaks: Are We Getting 6 Star Characters?

Amidst all of this, a new leak had suggested a few days ago that 6-star characters might be on the way., The leak doesn’t show any character, but instead, it shows a new red background which apparently is for six-star characters. This has got fans to wonder whether it is actually happening.

Well, unfortunately, the leak wasn’t correct and it was debunked by popular leaker abc64. He adds that “That’s used just for Aloy kek it doesn’t mean absolutely anything“. That means the new red background is just for the new character Aloy, which will be a part of the Horizon Forbidden West collab event. Considering how many five-star characters in the game are already there in the game, it does make little sense for miHoYo to add a six-star, and this confirmation makes a lot of sense.
