Genshin Impact update 1.3 has been out for awhile with the arrival of Xiao and the Lantern Rite event. The spotlight is now firmly on Keqing after switching from the aforementioned debutant, but lots of people are understandably asking: who is the next banner in Genshin Impact? Here you’ll discover everything that has been said about who the next banner will be, and you’ll also find the end date for Keqing.

Aside from a new character event wish that should occur in less than two weeks, there is a now a new Weapon Wish event with the Staff of Homa, Lithic Blade, and Lithic Spear. You should also know that the Lantern Rite event is scheduled to conclude on February 28th with the Xiao market remaining open until March 7th.

With all of the above now known, below you’ll find out the rumoured identity of the next banner in Genshin Impact.

When is the Keqing banner end date in Genshin Impact?

The end date for the Keqing banner in Genshin Impact is March 2nd.

In addition to the above end date, the Keqing banner in Genshin Impact will also finish at 16:00 server time.

This means that there is only a little over one week left until the character wish spotlight changes to another hero or heroine.

MiHoYo’s Keqing banner boasts Ningguang, Bennett, and Barbara as its accompanying four stars, so the selection isn’t bad despite Keqing not being new.

Still, some people were disappointed by the spotlight moving to Keqing after Xiao, but miHoYo could be about to make up for this with the arrival of a heavily leaked heroine.

Who is the next banner in Genshin Impact?

The next banner in Genshin Impact is expected to be Hu Tao.

MiHoYo’s next banner for Genshin Impact is expected to be released on March 2nd, and many leaks and rumours are pointing to the arrival of Hu Tao who was previously leaked for update 1.3 alongside Xiao.

The above release date isn’t confirmed, and miHoYo also haven’t confirmed the arrival of Hu Tao despite how much coverage is already on the internet.

While it’s not confirmed, many people are expecting Hu Tao be the next banner in Genshin Impact, so hopefully a confirmation is made in the near future.
