Being a gacha-based role-playing game, Genshin Impact’s focus has always been on bringing new content, playable characters, weapons, and other similar things. Though not everything takes the same preference, similarly, in Genshin Impact – playable characters are one of the major aspects of the game, and miHoYo knows that well, and that is why they introduce at least two new playable characters with each update.
While players are waiting for Ganyu’s banner release, the Genshin Impact community is eager to get their hands on the next upcoming playable character Xiao.
The Vigilant Yaksha – a Liyue Adeptus who goes by the Alias Xiao is an upcoming five-star Anemo element user, whose weapon of choice is a Polearm.
Even since Genshin Impact open beta players have been waiting to get their hands on Xiao. And with Genshin Impact 1.3 update they will finally get to roll for Xiao’s banner. As his banner is reportedly the first one to arrive with the next major patch.
Xiao’s Banner Release Date(February 2, 2021)
Even though there is no official release date for Xiao’s banner. We can easily find the release window of any upcoming Genshin Impact banner – thanks to the scheduled releases.
Keeping the past Genshin Impact banners release date in mind, alongside Ganyu’s banner official release date. We can say that Xiao’s banner will release on February 2, 2021.
Here is the reasoning behind it – Genshin Impact banners last for 20~21 days. Each Genshin Impact major update is 40 days long.
- 1st banner – 20~21 days
- 2nd banner – 20~21 days, After that next major update release.
Gnayu’s banner is releasing on January 12, 2021, and taking twenty-one days from 13th we get February 2, 2021, i.e, Xiao’s banner’s expected release date.
Genshin Impact is a free to play gacha-based role-playing game currently available on PC, PS4, Android, and iOS.
