Inazuma might have just floated into sight, but Genshin Impact 2.1 is just beyond it on the horizon.

Genshin Impact 2.1 leaks have already begun surfacing, including potential banners, events, and more.


Noted leaker GenshinReport also said every new update from now through the end of the year or early 2022 will introduce a new island in Inazuma, starting with the 2.1 update.

As ever, all this is subject to change between now and the possible release date, but here's what we know so far about Genshin Impact 2.1

Genshin Impact 2.1 Leaks: Genshin 2.1 Release Date

Following miHoYo's usual pattern of updates lasting six weeks or so, Genshin Impact 2.1 should release at the end of August or the first week of September.

When Will New Inazuma Islands Release?

Genshin Report said miHoYo will likely release new islands in each update, with the full region likely being available either by the end of 2021 or early in 2022.


They said the new island will likely be Watatsumi Island, though that's just based on information they were given about the patch's events.

Genshin Impact Inazuma Islands

A new leaked image from the Wangsheng Funeral Parlor Discord server shows two of the remaining islands, including Watatsumi and the headquarters of the Sangonomiya resistance.

Genshin Impact 2.1 Story

That information indicated the story will introduce the Sangonomiya Resistance movement, the political group opposing Inazuma's ruler, and won't be just a "filler patch."

Genshin Impact 2.1 Leaks: Genshin 2.1 Banners

That same information plus the Genshin Impact 2.0 trailer also suggest Sangonomiya Kokomi (or just Kokomi for short) will headline the Genshin Impact 2.1 banner.


We know little about Kokomi so far other than she's a Hydro character - hence the bubbles floating around her - and leads the resistance movement bearing her surname. Presumably she'll be a five-star character as well.

Aloy will make her debut during the 2.1 update as well, though only for PlayStation users initially.

The second part of the banner may feature a Keqing rerun for a few reasons.

Upcoming Weapons

The spotlight weapon in the next Genshin Impact weapon banner is still unknown, but the four-star weapon Heart Seeker (or Starseeker) will turn up at some point.

It's said to be a sword ideal for Keqing and, like Dodoco Tales, will reportedly be free. However, there's another factor pointing to Keqing's return.

Honey Hunter posted details of a new weapon, what's probably Kokomi's catalyst, the Diamond Visage. This weapon increases healing by 10%, boosts damage by 1% for each point of HP, and restores Energy. Follow this link to see all of the Genshin Impact weapons coming with update 2.1.


Genshin Impact 2.1 Leaks: All New Events

The Moonchase Festival will take place during Genshin 2.1, a festival Keqing is supposed to play a role in.

It's not the only big event planned, though. In fact, Genshin Report says it's fairly small.

It's also not the only event leaked so far, and we've outlined all the Genshin Impact 2.1 events elsewhere.

Genshin Impact 2.1 Leaks: Genshin Impact Fishing

One of the leaks points to a robust fishing system, including the option to decorate you Realm Within using the fish you catch.

Genshin Impact 2.1 Leaks: La Signora Boss Fight

Leaked footage shows La Signora will make an appearance as another boss during the 2.1 update. Whether she'll be playable after is still a mystery, though.


Genshin Impact 2.1 Leaks: Scaramouche in Inazuma

Scaramouche will finally make another appearance, and he'll actually have voiced lines again - or so the leaks say.

What's After Inazuma in Genshin Impact?

Genshin Report says the current plan has The Chasm region of Liyue planned for sometime soon after the Lantern Rite Festival in February. Not much is known about this area, though it could be Liyue's version of Dragonspine.
