Genshin Impact Update 2.0 is one week away, and players can finally set foot in Inazuma, the newest region in the game. This region is controlled by Baal, the Electro Archon, who has also assumed the role of Raiden Shogun.
Players may be excited to try out this new character and put his powerful Electro abilities to use, but it appears that based on recent leaks, he will not be playable in the next two updates. Players can learn more about Baal’s status as a playable character here:
To my current knowledge, Baal / Raiden will not be playable in Version 2.1
I’ve been told they have other characters currently planned. This could obviously change, but that’s what I’ve been told#原神 #Genshin Appde Information #Genshin_Impact #genshinimpact #Inazuma pic.twitter.com/veSHOms49N

Genshin Impact Update 2.0 will launch with the release of several new characters. But players waiting for Baal will have to wait a little longer to harness the power of the Electro Archon.
Genshin Impact has given players the opportunity to summon Anemo Archon Venti and Geo Archon Zhongli. But Baal will not be revealed with the launch of Inazuma.
It also appears that players will not have a chance to wield their power in the next Genshin Impact update, based on current data. Players may have to wait until after the two updates for this new character.
It is likely that it will allow time for the story to advance and present Baal as a god and as an individual. Players are likely to get more information once the Inazuma story begins later this month.
