What is the current and next Genshin Impact banner?

Find out how long the current Genshin Impact banner is scheduled to last and who you’ll be able to pull on the next banner using primogems in the 4.2 update.

Genshin Impact banners rotate every few weeks on a precise schedule, and we always know what to expect thanks to regular updates from Hoyoverse. The developer of the anime game always keeps its fans in the loop with regular Twitter posts and live streams, so you can plan where you want to spend your hard-earned primogems.

With a two to three-week turnaround for banners, the roster of Genshin Impact characters is always changing, and the free PC game regularly introduces two new characters to wish for. 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 Genshin Impact weapon banner, which runs alongside each character banner and changes weapons every update.

Next Genshin Impact banner

The next Genshin Impact banner is likely to contain two brand-new characters, Chevreuse and Navia. We haven’t been told when these characters are likely to drop, but we suspect at least one of them will be available in the first banner update of the 4.3 patch.
