Genshin Impact 2.8 will apparently receive new locations when that patch comes around – according to the latest Genshin Impact leaks.
The Twining Isle and the Floating Castle – Where the Princess Awaits

A new Genshin Impact leak reveals a new location that could possibly arrive at the game in Genshin Impact 2.8. The location, which is a new exploration area, is named “The Twining Isle and the Floating Castle – Where The Princess Awaits.” This leaked image of the new location shows a castle built upon a rock formation on an island. There are also a couple of towers and spires on other islands, some of which are even floating.
With official information about this location currently not available, speculations are running rampant in Genshin Impact communities. Many believe that the callback to a princess and the castle design of the location indicate that Fischl will somehow be involved in this Story Quest. For us, we think this speculation holds some ground. After all, we haven't seen much of Fischl for a long while now. The architectural design is also very European, something we'd expect to see in Mondstadt. Perhaps we'll find this in or near the Golden Apple Archipelago?
Official information about Genshin Impact 2.8 is still scarce, especially since we've only had the Genshin Impact 2.7 Special Program Livestream recently. Apart from the new character Shikanoin Heizou, not much is officially revealed both in content and story for the patch coming after 2.7.
