We are in the final couple of weeks for Genshin Impact update 1.3, and Hu Tao has finally arrived and there will be another Vishaps and Where to Find Them event in a couple of days. While all of this is fantastic, some people are looking ahead to version 1.4 and are thus asking: who is the next banner after Hu Tao? Here you’ll discover the latest update 1.4 rumours concerning who the next banner in Genshin Impact could be.
Update 1.4 should arrive in just a couple of weeks, and there’s plenty to be excited about. The condensed resin cap will be increased, and developer miHoYo have provided an update on what to expect such as plenty of quality of life improvements.
Plenty of news should be coming seeing as the next version is just a couple of weeks away, but below you’ll discover the latest rumours concerning who the next banner is after Hu Tao in Genshin Impact.
When is the Hu Tao banner end date for Genshin Impact?
The end date for the Hu Tao banner in Genshin Impact is March 16th.
In addition to the above end date, the Hu Tao banner will also finish in Genshin Impact at 15:00 server time.
This means you only have two weeks to pull the new Pyro character, and her shorter duration aligns with version 1.3 thanks to the release of three character event wishes as opposed to the usual two.
While the Pyro ghost gal is the headliner, her character event wish boasts Xingqiu, Xiangling, and Chongyun as 4 star characters.
Although the arrival of the spooky ghost gal has been anticipated since January (at least) when she was leaked alongside Xiao, it’s possible that fans could get a much wanted re-run in the near future.
Who is the next banner after Hu Tao in Genshin Impact?
The next banner after Hu Tao in Genshin Impact could be a Venti re-run (update: an update 1.4 livestream which will supposedly confirm the Venti rerun has been leaked for March 6th).
However, previous rumours suggested that the next banner after Hu Tao in Genshin Impact could be Ayaka as a new playabale character.
Rumours concerning a Venti re-run have recently gotten a lot of steam, meanwhile rumours of Ayaka date back to December.
Although it’s possible that Ayaka could be included seeing as she was a closed beta character, her inclusion is doubted by some thanks to suggestions that Inazuma will not be released until update 1.6.
While most recent rumours concern a Venti re-run, there’s also leaks suggesting that Rosaria will become playable.
Rosaria is an NPC that has appeared in Genshin Impact before, but there’s rumours that she could be part of the Venti re-run seeing as Honey Hunter World has her listed as 4-stars rather than five.
A Venti re-run banner and playable Rosaria are both looking likely, and the good news is that we might not have too long of a wait left for confirmation.
Version 1.2 and 1.3 special programmes were uploaded to miHoYo’s YouTube channel on Fridays two weeks before the start of the new update.
Seeing as update 1.4 is expected to start on March 17th, it’s possible that the next banner after Hu Tao could be confirmed on March 5th provided miHoYo stick to tradition.
However, it’s possible that miHoYo will wait another week to make the announcement seeing as Hu Tao has only just come out and there’s been three banner as opposed to the regular two.
