The Genshin Impact 2.6 Update is slated to be released in late March 2022, and information about Shikanoin Heizou’s inclusion in the update has already leaked.
The New Characters Expected in the Updates
While the Genshin Impact players are now fully immersed in the new update 2.4, rumours for update 2.6 have already started to circulate in the market. According to the leaks, few characters are expected to make their way into the game.
The long-awaited entrance of Ayato, the ruler of Kamisato Clan and Ayaka’s older brother is said to be included in the future update. There also have been rumours that Heizou will finally receive his long-awaited banner.
The two characters have been quite popular for some time although it has not been confirmed that they would be revealed. Several appearances have been made in the game’s dialogue and in-game lore.
The visuals, however, are still kept under the wraps. Another leak source suggests the return of Dainsleif with the 2.6 updates of the game
The Release of Kamisato Ayato
There have been some previous leaks about Ayato’s kit, which may lend validity to his inclusion in version 2.6. He will most likely be a 5-star Hydro sword character, according to a few descriptions of his talents found in-game files.
He’ll either be the main DPS or support, it’s unknown. In any case, there will be another powerful Hydro character soon. Ayato’s release will almost definitely coincide with another large Inazuman event, given he is a Kamisato family member.
Fans should keep an eye on their Primo gems to guarantee they get Ayato as soon as he becomes available.

Shikanoin Heizou- The Most Awaited Character
Shikanoin Heizou and their rarity level were revealed in the most recent leaks. According to this recent leak, Heizou’s rarity level will be confirmed in the game when the 2.6 Update is launched. In Genshin Impact 2.6, Heizou is expected to be a 4-star unit.
At this point, we do not know under which banner the new character will be released. The leak was first confirmed by UBatcha, a well-known leaker. Heizou is a young detective who prefers his tasks over official responsibilities.
Despite this, he is a fantastic worker who adheres to his values, even though understanding him might be difficult. He is a disobedient young guy who clashes with figures such as Kujou Sara and the Sango Detective Agency.
Heizou will undoubtedly be a fascinating pick when he debuts later this year. Shikanoin Heizou, who is also from Inazuma, is no stranger to the unsavoury characters who prowl Inazuma as a Tenryou Commission detective.
This intriguing character, like Ayato, is shrouded in mystery. Heizou has been kept out of the spotlight by miHoYo, except for a few mentions on the game’s bulletin boards.
Apart from minor titbits of information obtained from NPCs and other characters during discussion situations, not much is known about the character at the present. Kano Nana is one of the Grand Narukami Shrine’s attendants, and she is Heizou’s distant cousin, thus she can provide some information.
Should We Expect Dainsleif?
While there is no indication that Dainsleif would be playable in the 2.6 release, Ubatcha speculated that he might return.
Dainsleif has previously shown on our screens in Chapter I. Since then, the mysterious character has also appeared in Bough Keeper: Dainsleif, a world quest. It’s unclear what role he’ll play in the 2.6 tales, but maybe, miHoYo will throw some much-needed light on Dainsleif’s history.
Expected Release Date
Given that the 2.4 update is about to be released, Genshin Impact 2.6 isn’t going to be very far away. If the rumour is correct, Ayato will be released in March or early April.
Right now, we can only guesstimate the character’s real release dates, which point to two dates in particular. Banner 1 will most likely be released on March 30th, 2022, while Banner 2 may be released on April 20th, 2022.
Because of the regular cycle for Genshin Impact Update release dates, we’re projecting these two dates. Banners are normally released every 21 days in miHoYo, with every major game update arriving every 42 days.
The 2.4 Update for Genshin Impact was released on January 5th, 2022, hence the 2.6 Update should begin 84 days later.
This could, of course, change in the interim, as Microsoft may choose to issue the 2.5 Update sooner or later than the projected date of February 16th, so keep that in mind. The creators will host the official Twitch stream, which will feature the typical promo code giveaways and character demonstrations.
It is safe to say that the update will be one of the finest and most interesting updates as new characters are introduced filled with new possible gameplays and adventures.
