Genshin Impact developers have teased a lot of characters that may or may not become playable in future updates on the title's official YouTube channel or through in-game cutscenes and quests. When La Signora was first introduced in the game, everyone believed she would one day become a playable unit. This, unfortunately, is not possible anymore, owing to her demise. Since then, players can never be too sure about who will become playable.

However, there are a few characters that HoYoverse has confirmed will be released as usable entities in the upcoming update. Additionally, many leakers have revealed a lot of names that could potentially become playable characters.
