While the Genshin Impact community was waiting for the official announcement of the Ver. 2.7 Special Program Livestream is delayed indefinitely. Hoyoverse and Genshin Impactam schedule, they instead received a confirmation that the Livestream was delayed indefinitely.

Hoyoverse and Genshin Impact are used to scheduling their releases and announcements in such an organized manner that players know when to wait for new content before new dates are announced.

But this time is different. The only previous time the Special Program did not broadcast on the expected date was during the game's 1st Anniversary.

On that occasion, Hoyoverse moved the broadcast to Sunday to coincide with the first Genshin Impact Concert. This time, though, the stream has been delayed indefinitely after missing its original reveal date.

So when can Genshin Impact players expect the vers. 2.7 livestream?

Hidden Dreams in The Depths

With rumors of a possible delay not only in the Livestream but the entire Genshin Impact 2.7 update, fans are curious what the next step will be in the interim.

This is especially true after cover art for the Special Program was leaked via data mining.

Under the name Hidden Dreams in the Depths, the image shows the main characters for the storyline and the character banners of Genshin Impact 2.7.

While it's unconfirmed, it seems to match up with the game's typical style.

Postponing Genshin Impact 2.7

Shanghai, the home of Hoyovese Headquarters, is under a strict lockdown due to a resurgence of COVID cases. This is likely the central cause for any Genshin Impact 2.7 livestream and update delays.

If this is indeed the case, we might see an extra banner, a filler featuring a 5-star character to tide fans over waiting for the next big update - similar to what we saw from the Keqing banner delays.

Until Hoyoverse officially clarify, however, there will be plenty of speculation in the meantime.

Perhaps the only good thing to come from delays would be more time to farm required materails for upcoming characters in Genshin Impact 2.7 Banners. For this, we recommend checking our farming guides with materials, artifacts, and weapons for the following:
