Many Genshin Impact fans are wondering when developer miHoYo could officially reveal Kamisato Ayato and Yae Miko, two of the most hyped but unreleased characters – here are our best predictions based on the previous official reveal patterns.

Kamisato Ayato has already been strongly hinted to be a future character by miHoYo. Most notably with several characters in-game having “About Voice lines” concerning Ayato. Moreover, past data mined leaks already showed Ayato is currently in development.

Meanwhile, Yae Miko has also been all but officially confirmed to be a future playable character. However, she has no release date yet.

When will Genshin Impact reveal Yae and Ayato in Version 2.5? Predictions

It’s very likely Genshin Impact will reveal either Ayato, Yae, or both characters, right before the launch of Version 2.4 on January 5, 2022. You should especially keep your eyes on Genshin’s social media the week starting January 3.

Genshin Impact Drip Marketing meme explained

These predictions are based on past reveals from miHoYo. Ever since the launch of Inazuma, miHoYo started announcing future characters one Version ahead.

Fans have nicknamed these early reveals “Drip Marketing”, quoting an official Genshin Impact Tweet.

Genshin Impact 2.5 Drip Marketing could also reveal another character besides Ayato or Yae

Starting from the Ayaka and Yoimiya banners to the Version 2.4 Shenhe and Yun Jin banners, they were all announced one version ahead. On the days right before maintenance.

This is why you can expect Yae or Ayato to be revealed the week of January 3. Of course, miHoYo could reveal completely unrelated characters too. Lastly, it’s also possible Version 2.5 has no new characters, only reruns.
