However, players may have to wait a bit longer to acquire them, as many rumors claim that the upcoming 2.7 version may be delayed.
A recent announcement on Bilibili mentioned that the wonderful merchandise will arrive after the Leyline Overflow event, which was originally supposed to be the last event in the update. This and the current COVID-19 issues facing Shanghai have led much of the community to believe that Genshin Impact Version 2.6 could be extended.

The first one Genshin Impact banner brought a brand new character, Kamisato Ayato and Venti for the first banner phase. The second part of the update started on March 22 and introduced the first banner repeat for Ayato’s sister, Cryo user Ayaka. According to the in-game countdown, his banner will expire on May 10.

The flow Genshin Impact Beta 2.7 leaks revealed a lot of information about the two upcoming characters, Yelan and Kuki Shinobu. Both characters will be a perfect fit for the supporting role, but Yelan should be a stronger character due to his five-star rarity. Leakers have claimed that Yelan will arrive on the first cycle of banners, while players will have to wait for the second part of the update to pull Kuki Shinobu.
