Genshin Impact has been a fantastic game since its launch last year, although Nintendo Switch owners haven’t been able to enjoy it yet thanks to an apparent delay because of ‘weaker hardware’. While it’s the disappointing that a Nintendo Switch launch isn’t within sight, the good news for those able to play is that there have been massive leaks for update 1.6. Here you’ll find the release date for Genshin Impact update 1.6 as well as the leaked character banners.
Some of the leaks include summer skins for Barbara and Jean. These summer skins will allegedly come in the upcoming next version of the game, but there will also be a brand new protagonist provided the rumours are true.
While summer skins are exciting, below you’ll find when Genshin Impact version 1.6 will come out.
Genshin Impact update 1.6 leaked character banners
The leaked character banners for Genshin Impact update 1.6 include Kazuha.
Aside from Kazuha, another leaked character for the banners in Genshin Impact version 1.6 is a Klee re-run.
Yoimiya was initially rumoured to be a part of the upcoming version, but this now appears unlikely thanks to her being five stars.
Kazuha seems likely seeing as gamplay and all of his skills have been leaked, meanwhile a Klee rerun wouldn’t be surprising.
After all, we’ve recently received reruns for Venti in 1.4 and Zhongli in 1.5.
Some of the reruns have come with a new character such as Rosaria with Childe and Yanfei with Zhongli, but there’s no such rumours for Klee as of writing.
When is the release date for Genshin Impact update 1.6?
The release date for Genshin Impact update 1.6 should be June 9th.
This release date for Genshin Impact update 1.6 is dependent on miHoYo maintaining their consistency of six weeks between each version following the start of version 1.5 on April 28th.
MiHoYo have maintained their consistency of six weeks between each version ever since version 1.1, so there’s no reason to believe that they will drift away from it now.
Of course, there’s the possibly it could be delayed, but June 9th is the likely release date as per miHoYo’s regular pattern.
