Genshin Impact Sumeru's release date has been highly discussed amongst Genshin Impact players.

After Mondstadt, Liyue, and Inazuma, Sumeru is the fourth major nation of Teyvat to be coming to Genshin Impact. Ruled by the Dendro Archon, Sumeru is the land of Wisdom, and characters from Sumeru (as well as Sumeru's section in Genshin Impact's storyline preview) imply that Sumeru is heavily inspired by the Middle East and desert imagery, making it contrast vastly with the currently available regions.

Genshin Impact Sumeru's Release Date Rumors

While Sumeru's official release date has yet to be announced, leaks and rumors speculate that Sumeru (and Genshin 3.0) will be coming in late July or early August, after the Version 2.8 update. Genshin Impact Version 2.0 came after update 1.7, so this timeline makes sense with past update patterns as well.

Current Version 2.7 events have heavily featured Sumeru NPCs and plotlines, indicating that Sumeru is coming relatively soon. In addition, data miners have found data mentioning the Dendro element–the new element coming alongside the release of Sumeru.

While playable character's coming alongside Sumeru's release have not yet been announced, we have already met the Dendro Catalyst user Baizhu in Liyue, who serves as the owner of Bubu Pharmacy. In addition, the storyline teaser shows a Polearm user named Cyno as one of the available characters. Since Inazuma's section of the video showed Ayaka, and she was the first character to be released alongside Version 2.0, it's fair to guess that either Baizhu or Cyno will be the first new characters coming to the game alongside Sumeru's inevitable release.
