Genshin Impact’s version 2.7 update has been postponed with no news on when the announcement of a new date will come. Developers miHoYo announced the delay this week via Twitter. “Due to the progress of the project, the version 2.7 update will be postponed. For detailed information on the date of the new update, content adjustment plan and compensation, please stay tuned for future announcements,” it said.
miHoYo followed up by saying it would provide additional information as soon as possible, and apologized for the inconvenience.

The delay comes from the ongoing COVID-19 lockdown in Shanghai, where miHoYo is based. The 25 million person lockdown in Shanghai is entering its fifth week, as reported by ABC News, and the inability to work from their offices is definitely affecting miHoYo developers.
Many responses on social media wished the developers good luck and hoped they would focus on staying safe instead of trying to release content for the game. Others said no “compensation” would be needed – Genshin Impact often hands out free premium currency in the game when updates are delayed.
