Release Time & Date Genshin Impact 1.6 Update

The release date of the Genshin Impact Update 1.6 is June 9th (or 8th, depending on your time zone), that much has been officially announced, but the release time hasn’t been confirmed as of writing this article. This isn’t the first time that the developers announce the launch time relatively late, so no surprise there. However, we can make an educated guess as to when the new content will drop. It’s usually around 8PM Pacific Time. The previous update launched around 4am BST on April 28th, meaning that North American gamers could download it on April 27th, at 8PM Pacific. I believe it stands to reason that Update 1.6 will also come out at the same time, or at least in the ballpark. We’ll be sure to add any official information on the matter once it becomes available.

    they actually have said when the update will take place exactly, in two places: the notices, where they give the exact date, and around how much time the maintenance will take. they have also said it in the wishing banner, where it shows the exact amount of time until the next banner (klee, then kazuha, and I heard that it might be ganyu, then xiao, but those last two could be twitter lying to me?)
