Genshin fans will have a little longer to wait before the game's next big update is released.

Genshin Impact developers miHoYo recently outlined the upcoming events planned for version 2.6, the current state of Genshin. While a number of exciting evetns have been outlined for the coming month, the end date of one particular event has caught the attention of its players.

Genshin Impact's "Spices From the West" event is set to kick off on May 14 and end on June 7th. Because of this, players have begun speculating that this means the game's next update, version 2.7, won't be released until after this date.

It seems Genshin's 2.7 update has already had a rocky time, with its dedicated update livestream having been delayed - leaving many fans to wonder what this means to the update itself.

The "Spices From the West" event sees players help Nazafarin with her research by making certain seasonings. During the event, players are able to grab themselves a number of rewards including Primogems, Hero's Wit, Weapon Ascension Materials, and more.

It makes sense, then, that the next update won't arrive until after the conclusion of the event.

MiHoYo previously announced on April 29 that the 2.7 update was postponed until further notice. A Tweet via the game's official page read, "Due to project progress, the Version 2.7 update will be postponed."

With no date set for the update livestream or the update itself, it's anyone's guess for when version 2.7 will actually go live.
