Genshin Impact 2.0 ENG might stump many observers who would not have expected version 2.0 to launch this soon. Why? Because version 1.6 was the last Genshin Impact update released most recently. This indicates that the upcoming iteration is going to feature increments big enough that miHoYo is hopping over a few digits in update count and leaping straight ahead to ver 2.0.
So, what are those significant changes you might wonder? Well, miHoYo has already confirmed the inclusion of an all-new region and capital city, Inazuma. But that’s not all. As per another Twitter account with access to insider news, Genshin Report, miHoYo is also going to announce cross-saves between mobile, PC, PS5, PS4 (as well as Nintendo Switch once the compatible version releases).

Genshin Impact players have grappled with this limitation to move across between PC/console and mobile versions of the game, thus hampering their progress due to the restriction. So this comes as a welcome development. All in all, it seems Genshin Impact 2.0 will present pretty substantial upgrades overall.
Genshin Impact is out on PC, PS4, PS5, Android, and iOS platforms. Based on the pattern of previous update releases, a new version becomes available after about six weeks. Since ver 1.6 came out on 8 June, so we expect version 1.7 or 2.0 around 22 July 2021.
