The update cadence of Genshin Impact has been consistent enough that one could practically set their watch to it, so it’s very likely a bit of a surprise to learn that developer Hoyoverse has announced a delay for the Version 2.7 update.
According to the tweet, the update will be postponed for an indeterminate length of time, though players can expect an announcement of a new date as well as details for an adjusted content plan and compensation for the delay. A representative speaking to Polygon simply confirms that “project progress” has caused the postponement, which is likely being exacerbated by COVID lockdowns in Shanghai, where Hoyoverse’s office is located.
Due to project progress, the Version 2.7 update will be postponed.
For detailed information on the date of the new update, content adjustment plan, and compensation, please stay tuned for upcoming announcements.#GenshinImpact pic.twitter.com/FiiGQyJO1G
