No other official reason was given for the delay, nor as to how long the delay would last.
Since launch, major updates to Genshin Impact have followed a six-week development cycle. May 11 would have been exactly six weeks after Genshin Impact 2.6’s release date, but we’ll have to wait to hear more about the new 2.7 release date.
Genshin Impact 2.7 Banners and Characters
According to known Genshin Impact leaker Lumie, Yelan and Kuki Shinobu may be coming to an upcoming Genshin Impact banner as part of the 2.7 update. Yelan will headline the first banner in 2.7, and Kuki Shinobu will join Itto on a rerun banner in the second half of the update, which will launch three weeks after the first half.
According to my 🐤, Yelan (5*) should be in the first phase of 2.7 followed by Kuki Shinobu (4*) in the second phase.

Genshin Impact 2.7 Live Stream
There is no official release date for the Genshin Impact 2.7 livestream. For reference, the live streams of the latest updates were released around 10-12 days before a new version was launched.
We originally planned a livestream date between April 30th and May 2nd, but now that patch 2.7 has been officially delayed, it’s possible the livestream has been postponed as well.

At the moment, the only rumor we have for new 2.7 events comes from Genshin_arab which points to new events taking place in The Chasm, the new area introduced in 2.6. A new event in the leak is called “A Muddy Bizarre Adventure”.

It’s also suggested that a new quality of life feature will come to 2.7 – the ability to search for achievements. This is from Mia, and the text has been translated so take this with a grain of salt.
