Genshin Impact 2.8 update Release date

Starting with the basics, the officialGenshin Impact 2.8 update release date is July 13th, 2022. So you have lots of time if you want to start saving up Primogems.

Genshin Impact 2.8 update – Heizou banner

It was rumored since v2.6 that Shikanoin Heizou will be a part of the Genshin 2.8 update and that has actually turned true, as reported by miHoYo on the game’s official Twitter account, the solely confirmed banner character for Genshin 2.8 version thus far is Heizou.

Heizou, the Detective of the Tenryou Commission, is highly likely to be released in Genshin Impact 2.8 update. We don’t know a lot about this character, but the 2.8 beta has given us his Elemental Skill and Burst. Moreover, we can start to see Heizou gameplay videos coming up on social media.

Heizou isn’t the only one players and leakers were speculating. It was revealed earlier that there will be three 2.8 banner reruns and no new 5-star character will be released in version 2.8 as 3.0+ updates are all set to introduce more than 16 new characters.

However, an unknown fact about Heizou is who is the 5-star character to be featured alongside him. Our guess is that Kazuha will be given another rerun, seeing that he will receive his own Story Chapter in this update.

UBatcha also suggested that the Kazuha rerun might be the one with Heizou to be featured on the banner.

Genshin Impact 2.8 update – Kazuha banner rerun

There are many circulating Genshin Impact leaks that point at a Kazuha banner rerun in update 2.8. He will be there in the Summer Sea Sojourn event, and also in the “Acer Palmatum Chapter: Act I” story quest.

Lumie, a Genshin Impact leaker, says Klee will be there with Kazuha’s rerun banner. Also, images have been posted on the internet from the Phantom Realm event that gives us a look at what could be the swordman’s old home.

Plus, there is the fact that Kazuha is one of the few 5-star characters who hasn’t gotten a rerelease yet.
