The Genshin Impact community is always buzzing with news of upcoming characters, whether confirmed by Mihoyo, glimpsed in trailers, or dug up through Genshin Impact leaks. With new updates coming out almost every six weeks bringing fresh events, storylines, characters, and more, there’s always a new titillating titbit to speculate over. And one of the characters on our radar is the mysterious, cold-natured but intelligent young man, Cyno.
Genshin Impact’s Cyno has appeared previously in the official manga, as well as a preview that came out way back in 2020, near the game’s release. Since then, you’ve been speculating when Genshin Impact Cyno’s release date will be, what weapon he’ll wield, what element he is, and more. Luckily, it looks like we shouldn’t have too much longer to wait – though nothing is confirmed yet. Here’s everything we know about this elusive, white-haired scholar at the moment.

Who is Genshin Impact’s Cyno?
Cyno is a character that first appeared in chapter 12 of the official Genshin Impact manga, as well as the Teyvat chapter storyline preview. He’s a knowledgeable scholar from the upcoming region, Genshin Impact’s Sumeru, and appears to be quite aloof and stoic. His outfit seems to be based on Anubis, which fits in with speculations about Sumeru being a desert-themed, Egypt-inspired region.
From splash art so far, we can see that Cyno wields a polearm, though this may be subject to change. He also has red eyes and a red gem hanging from his belt which may be a pyro vision, but we’re unsure if it’s actually just decoration.
When is the Genshin Impact Cyno release date?
While we’re unsure of Genshin Impact Cyno’s release date, the Teyvat chapter storyline preview suggests that Sumeru is coming in chapter three, after Inazuma. We predict that Cyno will release during chapter three alongside the new region, but nothing is set in stone yet.
What do we know about Genshin Impact’s Sumeru?
Due to Reddit leaks, we’ve seen an early build of Sumeru city, which appears to be located in a giant tree, and we’ve got a glimpse of the Court of Flowing Sand, a potential Sumeran domain. It’s suggested that Sumeru is ruled by the dendro archon, which means we may finally get our hands on that long-awaited new element.
As stated above, the Teyvat chapter storyline video tells us that chapter three takes place in Sumeru, meaning we might not have long to wait until we can explore this new region. Of course, this is all subject to change. To keep on top of the latest, most plausible leaks, check out our Genshin Impact leaks article.
