Leaks and Rumors

New Characters

There have been two leaked characters for Genshin Impact 1.6, Yoimiya, and Kazuha. Yoimiya is a Five Star Pyro Bow character, while Kazuha is a Five-Star Anemo Sword character.

Because both the character that appear to be coming in 1.6 are Five Stars, this seems to indicate that their will be no returning Five Star Banner, so if you were waiting on Albedo if looks like you will be waiting for a little while longer.

Skin system

Rumors of a skin system are flying thick and fast around the internet, so tune into the 1.6 Stream on May 28 to find out if that is real or not.

New Character Kazuha

It would appear that Kazuha, a new 5 Star Anemo user will be the new character introduced during the 1.6 update.

Will Inazuma finally arrive?

The usual leaks are flying around that Inazuma will finally be arriving in 1.6, but it feels like this rumor has been kept alive since the game launched. There is little reason to believe that it will arrive in 1.6, no matter what the clout chasers are claiming.
