Genshin Impact 2.7 version duration likely to be shortened, as per leaks

A new unverified leak says that Genshin Impact 2.7 will be shorter than the usual 42 days associated with Version Updates. This leak came from a technician, so its reliability is in question, but it’s still worth sharing the details for those curious to learn more.

It was originally written in Chinese before being translated into English. That leak basically says that Genshin Impact 2.7 has been shortened. The leaker got the news when he implemented MD5 (a vulnerable hash function that security experts generally advise against using). Whether that’s true or not remains to be seen, but it has people talking.

The full leak can be seen in the Reddit post shown below.

Genshin Impact 2.7 may be shorter than previous versions (according to leaks)

Normally, Version Updates last for 42 days. This statement was true for every version from 1.0 to 2.5. Genshin Impact 2.7 has finally been delayed, meaning Update 2.6 has lasted longer than any previous update to date.

Some travelers believe this leak makes sense for a number of reasons, such as:

  • It will allow upcoming updates to start on their scheduled date again.
  • miHoYo can schedule their events at certain times (like summer or winter).
  • It may skip some fill times in Genshin Impact 2.7.
  • Sumeru will not be delayed.

However, that does not guarantee that the leak is authentic; chances are it’s completely fake. So far, no other reliable leaker has supported it and the next update release date is unknown.

What is known about Genshin Impact 2.7?

The upcoming update has some content that players already know through some leaks. For example, the image above comes from what is supposed to be the next livestream. The characters featured on it are:

  • Yelan
  • Itto
  • Xiao
  • Kuki Shinobu
  • Yanfei


l of those characters were leaked to appear on the banner in that Version Update. Given their prominence in this art, it shouldn’t be hard to see if those leaks are accurate (keep in mind that these leaks have yet to be proven accurate).

Similarly, the upcoming Spiral Abyss has also been leaked. The previous hyperlink includes enemy lineups and buffs for players to learn about. However, there are also contents that players don’t know yet, such as:

  • Release date Update version
  • Live video release date
  • Specific banners

Until then, Travelers can only wait for more leaks (such as whether the Next Version Update will actually be shortened).
