The Genshin Impact version 2.7 update has been delayed, with no word on when the announcement of a new date will arrive. Developers miHoYo announced the delay this week via twitter. “Due to the progress of the project, the 2.7 update will be delayed. For detailed information about the new update date, content adjustment plan and compensation, stay tuned for upcoming announcements,” he said.
miHoYo said it will provide more information as soon as possible and apologized for the inconvenience caused.

The delay comes amid the ongoing COVID-19 lockdown in Shanghai, where miHoYo is headquartered. The lockdown of 25 million people in Shanghai is entering its fifth week, as reported by ABC Newsand the lack of ability to work in their offices is certainly taking a toll on miHoYo developers.
Many responses on social media wished the developers well, hoping they would focus on staying safe rather than trying to release content for the game. Others said no “compensation” would be required – Genshin Impact often offers free premium in-game currency when updates are delayed.
