The alarming news that the Genshin Impact 2.7 update has been delayed due to the COVID surge in China came today, which means fans will have to wait some more time before the new version is released.
Characters such as Yelan and Kuki Shinobu will make their debut during this version, along with a new story that will plunge players deeper into the Chasm.
According to current information, the update was postponed due to the growing COVID-19 crisis in China, which offset the release schedule and caused serious delays in the workplace. Fans can find out more about this delay here, along with possible compensation.
Genshin Impact 2.7 Update Reportedly Delayed Due to COVID-19
Genshin Impact 2.7 has been officially postponed, and although the exact cause has not yet been published, many have speculated that it is due to an increase in COVID-19 cases in China.
This has significantly affected the workflow of many companies, and it seems that Hoyoverse is no exception. Fans of the game may have to wait a week (or even longer) for the update to finally take effect.
So far, there has not been a full official statement about the delay, although there is some information in the form of a response to a comment on the official forum.
This response stated that the 2.7 special live broadcast would be postponed and that they were sorry for the inconvenience. Unfortunately, the replacement date was not disclosed, which means that gamers will also have to wait for more information about the live broadcast.
Genshin 2.7’s live broadcast is delayed; Since I’ve seen a lot of people who don’t know about the situation, I just want to remind everyone that Shanghai has been under severe COVID lockdown for over a month.
The reason for the delay in this update is probably due to the severe COVID-19 outbreak and the subsequent lockdown that affects China, especially Shanghai. Many workers were unable to get to work due to the lockdown, and this probably prevented the completion of the 2.7 update. The exact date of the release of the lock is unknown, and this may further delay the release of the update.
The 2.7 update trailer has only recently appeared online in the form of a leak. Fans can get an early look at the update, although it focuses mainly on the gameplay of Yelan and Kuki Shinobu. It looks like the plot part of the update trailer is still in development, and fans will probably see it sometime in the near future.
It is unknown if players will receive compensation for this delay, although it is likely that they will be given Primogems and other rewards to compensate for the downtime. Many fans are hoping for a quick and healthy return to work for the game’s developers, and a more official response will definitely be published soon.
