According to the leak, Genshin Impact 2.9 can be skipped. Then, Genshin Impact may jump directly to update 3.0. Therefore, players may welcome the first Dendro playable character in two months later.

Will Update 2.9 Be Skipped?

As leaked, Genshin Impact 2.8 will be released on July 13th, 2022, followed by Update 3.0 on around August 24th, 2022. It means that there is now version 2.9 based on the six-week cycle schedule of Genshin Impact.

New Characters in Update 3.0

Moreover, the first playable Dendro character may debut in the game in that update. She is most likely Collei, a young girl with insane power and abilities. According to the story in the manga, Collei was injected with Archon residue by Fatui. So, she can be very powerful.

Genshin Impact Collei
Collei has a sad story in the manga with a tragic childhood like Xiao.

Players may get an older version of Collei in that update - a 4-star archer. Besides, Cyno can be another new character in Update 3.0. He is theoretically a 5-star polearm Electro character. But Cyno may come as a Pyro character because he has a red orb of Vision in some leaked images.

A lot of players are also expecting Kusanali to arrive as a Dendro character. She is the Dendro archon, also known as the God of Wisdom. Kusanali is also one of the main protagonists in the story of Teyvat. Therefore, she is as likely as a 5-star character with a long story for Travelers to explore in Sumeru.

Genshin Impact Cyno
Cyno can be a new character from Sumeru to come to Genshin Impact 3.0.
