The new patch will introduce Dehya and Mika as new playable characters.

Speculations about Genshin Impact 3.5 update date and upcoming livestream
Genshin Impact 3.5 leaks have circulated tons of leaks revealing new upcoming content. Reliable sources suggest that Mondstadt will make a comeback with its recurring flagship event, the Windblume event. The patch will also introduce new characters, various events, and many more based on the leaks.
HoYoverse officials have confirmed that they have returned to the original six-week cycle for their patch update.
With the latest one staying live for 42 days, it can be estimated that the upcoming version update will be launched on March 01, 2023, at 11:00 AM (UTC+8).
