Genshin Impact version 2.3 is looking to be quite an exciting time for “Geo” enthusiasts, as it would seem that Albedo, Itto and Gorou banners will be released once the next major update goes live.
miHoYo’s flagship title is currently on version 2.2, which expanded on the Inazuma storyline, introducing a whole new island for players to explore. Moreover, the new playable character, Thoma, will also be receiving his debut banner in a few days’ time, along with a Hu Tao banner rerun.
Genshin Impact version 2.2 is expected to come to a close once the Hu Tao and the Thoma banner ends. Prominent data miners who go by the Twitter handles of @lumie_lumie and @Ubatcha1 have already leaked and talked about some of the banner runs that players can look forward to once 2.3 hits the live servers.
According to the miners, Genshin Impact version 2.3 will run the “geo trio” and fans will get to pull in Albedo, Itto and Gorou.
Albedo, Itto and Gorou release dates in Genshin Impact
According to dataminers, Genshin Impact version 2.3 will not begin with a new character banner, but with Albedo’s rerun. If miHoYo keeps following their six-week update schedule, then it’s safe to assume that version 2.3 will go live on 24 November 2021, with a possible Albedo banner.
This speculation stems from the fact that Childe got his second rerun in 2.2 because he had a major role to play in the version’s story progression, and Albedo, too, has a big role in the events of 2.3.
Dataminers have also confirmed that Gorou will be represented as a 4-star character and will be featured on Itto’s banner like Kujou Sara was on Raiden Shogun’s.
Itto’s banner is expected to go live three weeks after Albedo’s; hence, 24 November 2021 is expected to be the date when the two Geo characters get their banner debut.
From what has been mined and confirmed so far, Itto is going to be a 5-star Geo Claymore user, while Gorou will be a 4-star Geo Bow user. However, it’s important to note that as most of the information provided above was through datamined leaks, some facts are subject to change until miHoYo starts to provide Genshin Impact players with official updates on version 2.3.
