Quite recently, the 2.3 Update live stream was held, which gave players an insight into what to expect from the game. We will be getting two new characters, Gorou and Itto, along with a range of other stuff. There is also a new gadget, known as the Omni-Ubiquity net, which allows you to catch various animals and place them in your Serinitea Pot.

As players are waiting for the 2.3 Update to drop, many are wondering which are the upcoming characters in the game.

Another character that is speculated to arrive in the 2.4 Update, Shenhe is being highly anticipated by fans of the game. There was a lot of ambiguity around Shenhe’s arrival in the 2.4 Update, but recent leaks have pretty much confirmed that she will be coming in 2.4. Shenhe has been mentioned by Chongyun, Ganyu, Hu Tao, Xiao, Ningguang and Xingqiu.


If you are an avid Genshin Impact fan, you might have been well aware of the fiasco when everyone believed that Yae will be coming out in the 2.2 Update, but eventually, miHoYo pulled off a surprise and she wasn’t a part of the update. While the reasons are still unknown, multiple leaks hint that it will release in the 2.5 Update.


The penultimate character in our list is Ayaka’s elder brother, Kamisato Ayato. We have heard quite a lot about the character in the game, with some NPCs praising his sword and polearm skills, hinting towards his weapon of choice. Leaks have stated that Ayato is a Hydro Sword character. As far as the release date is concerned, one leak had hinted towards a 2.6 Update release but that leak was later taken down.


Finally, we have the highly anticipated Scaramouche, aka Balladeer. A recent AMA with leakers had hinted towards the fact that the character will indeed be playable, although one shouldn’t expect it to arrive anytime soon. We witnessed Scaramouche in full glory during the  Omnipresence over Mortals quest, but it remains to be seen when he marks his arrivalarrives in the game.
