Genshin Impact 4.2 livestream and release dates
Version 4.2 will be launched on November 8, 2023, and it is expected to be huge. According to the leaks, the officials will release Charlotte and Furina in this update. The former is expected to be a 4-star Cryo unit. Meanwhile, Furina will naturally be a 5-star Hydro character since she is the Hydro Archon.

Genshin Impact 4.3 expected release date and livestream
Version 4.3 will be the final update of the game in the year 2023. According to the rumors from Stepleaks, Navia and Chevreuse are expected to be released in the 4.3 patch. This update will go live on December 20, 2023. Most of this patch occurs in the year 2023, so Travelers can expect one of the characters to be released next year. Navia is a Geo Claymore character and is expected to be a 5-star unit.
Meanwhile, Chevreuse is speculated to be a 4-star Pyro Polearm character. For those unaware, she is the captain of Fontaine's Special Security and Surveillance Patrol. Travelers can expect the 4.3 livestream to occur on December 8, 2023.
Note that the version 4.2 and 4.3 banners are merely based on leaks, so readers should take it with a grain of salt.
