miHoYo was among the many game companies at the Game Developers Conference held from July 19 to 23 and as report via Famitsu, a new roadmap for the release of future regions of Teyvat in The Genshin effect has been shared. I have translated and summarized Famitsu’s report below.
The Genshin effect Regional release roadmap – MiHoYo conference summary at GDC 2021
Cai Haoyu presented at GDC 2021 a conference titled “The Genshin effect: Creating an Anime-Style Open World”. The co-founder and CEO of miHoYo shared new insights on the development plans and future of the open world JRPG.
At the conference, Cai Haoyu mainly focused on introducing two core aspects of The Genshin effect: characters and open world.
The first half focuses on the development of the characters of Genshin effect. Emphasize that is the most important aspect of the game. Seeing its free gacha business model is entirely dependent on players catching up with new characters. Cai Haoyu used Xiao as a detailed example for his explanations.
The second part of the conference focused on how the open world is being developed. Near the end of the conference, Cai Haoyu explained that “new content is always being developed, and there will be more updates.” Finally, Cai Haoyu revealed how miHoYo “wants to have all seven regions of Teyvat released in the next four years”.

Where is the last area The Genshin effect and when is it released? Estimated release date
Previously, miHoYo shared the release order of regions of the Teyvat continent, in Chapter Teyvat Summary. Judging from Cai Haoyu’s new comments, an area should be released every year. Thus, the last region, Snezhnaya, has been officially confirmed to be released in 2025.
This is the potential The Genshin effect Route update areas now: Sumeru and The Dendro factor is scheduled for 2022. Fontaine launches in 2023. Natlan in 2024 and Snezhnaya in 2025.
Another way to explain it is that Snezhnaya and the seven regions will launch before 2025. While it will take until 2025 to add all the special zones (like Dragonspine and The Chasm) located inside each region.

Personally, this is exactly the estimate I’ve shared so far. Most notably when reinterpreting the “12-year roadmap” rumor, which was misinterpreted by many as “the final area of Teyvat will release in 12 years”. If that rumor is true, it simply means The Genshin effect will continue even after the seven regions are eliminated. And this is what the existence of “Chapter Teyvat” suggests in the first place. More story chapters will be released.
In any case, I’m pretty excited to see this new Genshin route. Inazuma is fun to explore and the new quests are really fun. Although I’ve barely been able to play since Version 2.0 came out. Cross-save is also incredibly useful, as I can play without worrying about my PC turning into Phoenix Ikki this summer. I’m really looking forward to what miHoYo has in store for the future of gaming.
The Genshin effect available on PC, PS4, PS5, iOS and Android. A Switch version is also in development. Version 2.0, released on July 21, added the Inazuma region and lots of new content. Version 2.1 will be released on September 1st.
