Before the release of version 2.2, we will get the Genshin Impact 2.2 Livestream that will outline every major addition coming to the game. In the wake of that, version 2.2 Livestream is something you won’t wanna miss. Keeping that in mind, we are here to talk about Genshin Impact 2.2 official live stream schedule, upcoming characters’ banner, and much more.

Genshin Impact 2.2 Livestream Official Schedule

miHoYo officially announces the Genshin Impact Livestream schedules two or three days before the event itself. However, by this time, it is irrelevant as miHoYo always airs a major update Livestream twelve days ahead of its official release.

Keeping that in mind, Genshin Impact 2.2 update Livestream will air on October 3, 2021, at 08:00 AM (UTC -4).

Where to Watch Genshin Impact 2.2 Livestream

As always, Genshin Impact players can watch version 2.2 Livestream on Twitch, YouTube, or the game’s official BiliBili page. However, keep in mind, the Livestream will premier on Twitch and after a few hours, it will be made available on other platforms.

Genshin Impact 2.2 Character Banners

According to rumors and leaks, Genshin Impact 2.2 will offer Hu Tao and Childe re-run banners, with one of them featuring Thoma. Childe got a re-run in Genshin Impact 1.4 update. If the rumors are true, it’s a shame that instead of having a Ganyu, Albedo, or Xiao re-run. We are getting a Childe re-run. That is going to be unwelcomed by most players in the Genshin Impact community.

For now, we don’t have enough viable information on the re-run banners. But, we can say that Hu Tao’s re-run is highly likely possible as Tsurumi Island coming with version 2.2 does feature a spooky theme.

Also, a relatively good source confirmed that Hu Tao’s banner will feature Thoma and that they will release in the second half of the Genshin Impact 2.2 update.

In any case, we will update the article if we get any new information on the mentioned topics.

Genshin Impact is a free-to-play gacha-based role-playing game currently available on PC, PS4, Android, and iOS.
