Genshin Impact banners adhere to a pretty regular schedule. Each update arrives with a new banner (or two) that lasts three weeks, followed by a second phase of banners which also lasts three weeks (barring any delays), at which point a new major update will drop.

Wondering what the next Genshin Impact banner is? We never know the exact details until banners are officially announced during the livestreams that precede each update. Occasionally, banners don’t stick to the typical schedule – most notably, update 1.3 had three two-week banners, so that Hu Tao’s banner didn’t cross over with the Chinese New Year. We also know that, for Genshin Impact 3.0 through 3.2 at least, these versions will last five weeks instead of six, so each phase will be shorter.

Every limited-time character banner – or Event Wish – contains a five-star character, and three four-star characters with increased drop rates. There’s also a Weapon banner – Epitome Invocation – which runs alongside each character banner, which changes weapons every update. Here’s everything you need to know about the current and upcoming Genshin Impact banners.

Next Genshin Impact banner

The next Genshin Impact banners will go live on August 24, along with the Genshin Impact 3.0 release. Four banners have been announced for Genshin Impact 3.0:

Collei will be a four-star character on both Zhongli’s and Tighnari’s banners, while Dori will be a four-star character on Ganyu and Kokomi’s banners. We don’t know yet who the remaining four star options will be.

Future Genshin Impact banners

In terms of future banners, there is a lot of chatter around the new region – Sumeru – as well as the debut of the Dendro element both of which will be coming with Genshin 3.0. Several new Genshin Impact characters showed off by Hoyoverse in a recent video are speculated to appear as playable characters in future updates, so at least patch 3.1 or beyond. New faces such as Cyno, Nilou, and Dehya could easily appear in future banners.
