The next Genshin Impact banner will see a new character make their debut in the game, so find out when the new banner will release, when the current one will end, and what re-runs will return.

Like most gacha games, Genshin Impact has a rotating banner that players need to use to recruit the game’s powerful five-star characters.

Not only do these new releases – which are often shoved into banners – enable Travelers to experiment with different team comps and playstyles, but they can also have a huge effect on the best Genshin Impact characters tier list and pick rates.

With Genshin Impact update 2.5 having arrived in February 2022, and leaks for update 2.6 already abound, many Genshin Impact players will be wondering what the next banner will be.

Whether you’re aiming to spend your Primogems on newly released characters or wish to try your luck at Genshin Impact’s banner re-runs, there is always something for everyone.
