After being delayed for a few weeks, we finally have a new release date for the Genshin Impact 2.7 update.

Hoyoverse is back on track after being one of the first companies allowed to return to full operations amidst the Shanghai lockdown.

The latest announcements go all the way to breaking down the adjustments Hoyoverse is making to their 2022 schedule, including the Special Program starting time as well.

Here are all the details.

Genshin Impact 2.7 Livestream

Let's start with version 2.7 Livestream. The broadcast will go live on their Twitch channel on Friday, May 20, 2022, at 8 pm Chinese Standard Time.

For other time zones, this translates to:

  • May 20, 2022, 8 am EST
  • May 20, 2022, 5 am PT
  • May 20, 2022, 1 pm GMT

We still don't know if Hoyoverse will broadcast an English Version. Either way, the broadcast in Mandarin will have English Subtitles.

The Livestream will be hosted by the Voice Actors of Arataki itto, Yelan, and Ganyu.

The Special Program 2.7 is the opportunity for players to obtain up to 300 Primogems in Promo Codes. Make sure to claim your rewards as they expire the same day.

Release Date

The new Genshin Impact 2.7 release date and start time is June 1, 2022, at 11 am server time (Chinese Standard Time).

  • May 31, 2022, 8 pm PST
  • May 31, 2022, 11 pm EST

While this is three weeks after the original date, version 2.7 will last the usual six weeks. But, of course, after that, all future updates will adjust accordingly.

Knowing this, Version 2.8 will arrive on July 13, 2022, and the banner of the Dendro Archon will run during the second anniversary.

Genshin Impact 2.6 Third Phase


The active Character Event Wish, Weapon Banners, and Test Run will end on May 31, 2022.

Players can expect the third and final batch of compensatory Primogems before version 2.6 ends.

Current in-game events will not change their end times. For example, spices from the West still finish on June 7, 2022, giving players all the time they'll need with it.

Serenitea Pot Fixes are coming soon

Hoyoverse will soon fix the Placement function in the Serenitea Pot at the same time version 2.7 goes live. With that, save your most fragrant dishes from the latest event and see how your favorite characters enjoy it!
