Many players are eagerly anticipating the release of the new region in Genshin Impact, which is expected to come with version 5.0. Here’s a detailed breakdown of the 5.0 update schedule and what to expect.

When Will Genshin Impact 5.0 Be Released?

Based on the 42-day update cycle:

  • Version 4.8: July 17, 2024 ~ August 28, 2024
  • Version 5.0: August 28, 2024 ~ October 9, 2024

Historical Context of Updates

Content Date
1.x Series: 7 versions 1.6 to 2.0 on July 21, 2021.
2.x Series: 9 versions 2.8 to 3.0 on August 24, 2022
3.x Series: 9 versions 3.8 to 4.0 on August 16, 2023
4.x Series: 8 versions 4.8 to 5.0 on August 28, 2024
  • The 1.x series had seven versions, transitioning from 1.6 directly to 2.0 on July 21, 2021.
  • The 2.x series had nine versions, with 2.8 transitioning to 3.0 on August 24, 2022. There was a three-week extension for version 2.6, and versions 3.0, 3.1, and 3.2 were each shortened by a week to align with the September 28th anniversary.
  • Similarly, the 3.x series also had nine versions, with version 4.0 starting on August 16, 2023.

Given this pattern, if Fontaine (4.x) also spans nine versions, version 4.8 will conclude at the end of August. This positions version 5.0 and the new region of Natlan to coincide with the anniversary celebration. Historically, new nations do not debut on the anniversary version, aligning with this expected schedule.
