Genshin Impact, one of our favorite video games of 2020, has announced the delay of its latest update 2.7. Players suspect that government-mandated COVID-19 lockdowns in Shanghai, where developer miHoYo is based, may be to blame. In past week, restrictions within the city have been so suffocatingly stringent that some people are having trouble accessing food.
In a tweet announcing the delay, miHoYo gave few details beyond promising to deliver more information about its content adjustment and compensation plans, which should appease even the most disgruntled players.
As Kotaku reports, this delay is a first for Genshin Impact, an expansive open world RPG that has managed meet its official release dates throughout the pandemic.
So, if you’re a fan, now might might be a good time to save up for when that next update does inevitably drop.
