Genshin 2.7 Leaks: Banners/Characters
Yelan (5-star Hydro Bow user) and Kuki Shinobu (4-star Electro Sword user) are the new characters for 2.7. Due to its delayed release, it will be shortened and will likely only feature Yelan’s banner, possibly a double banner with Xiao. During the extended 2.6 time, the Ayaka banner might be replaced with the second phase banners of 2.7. It is rumored to be Itto. This might still change, though.
When is the Genshin 2.7 Livestream?
Leaks say that the 2.7 update is delayed by three weeks, so it’ll go live on June 1, 2022. That means the new livestream date could possibly be May 20, if they’ll follow their usual livestreaming schedule. Remember that this is only an estimate based on previous schedules, and there are circumstances that may prove this wrong.

If all goes well, it’s scheduled for June 22, 2022. This can still change depending on the situation in Shanghai and how well recording turns out.
