Today is the last day of the Game Developers Conference 2021, better known by the acronym GDC , in which there was obviously no lack of announcements or important revelations. Genshin Impact, famous free-to-play jrpg developed by miHoYo, is a title that since its launch has never stopped improving and expanding its boundary (in terms of playable regions) as an online title.
The game lands were discussed during a panel at the GDC, where the developer in question stated that he had already foreseen and partly therefore planned the future additional regions in Genshin Impact from here up to four years, time in which all seven will complete the lands of Teyvat.
MiHoYo CEO, Haoyu Cai, spoke thus during one of the events held today:
Although Genshin Impact has been online since 2020, we are still developing future content. We have just finished the three nations (out of seven), and the third one, Inazuma, has not yet been updated. It will take another four years to finish all seven of Teyvat’s lands.
The #GenshinImpact Version 2.0 “The Immovable God and the Eternal Euthymia” update will be coming on July 21. Live stream your content, complete missions and earn Primogems!

When it comes to expansions, fans are always happy to be able to enjoy those additions. However such a long time to be able to complete a “project” of this caliber could make someone turn up their noses. Despite this, we are still talking about an online game, potentially infinite and that as long as there is a good community to support it like the one there is at the moment, it will obviously not stop producing expansions or anything else.
We are talking about more or less one region per year, among those remaining, and with the launch of Inazuma, this means that it will take a very long time before we can see a new region. In the meantime, however, you could recover all the innovations introduced with update 2.0.
In the meantime, however, there will be no lack of interesting additional content such as the one announced a few days ago. Aloy, protagonist of the Sony PlayStation and PC adventure titled Horizon Zero Dawn, will become a playable character.
