Genshin Impact version 2.7 is about to come to an end and Version 2.8 Update is just around the corner. Considering the Genshin Impact timeline, the version 2.8 update will go live on July 13 and the Livestream is scheduled for July 2, 2022, at 8 AM (UTC-4). The version 2.8 update is called Summer Fantasia and players can view the Livestream on Genshin Impact’s official Twitch channel and the official YouTube channel.
Players expect that in version 2.8, players would be able to explore the Golden Apple Archipelago once more. Now, with the update named Summer Fantasia, and the GAA islands having great summer vibes, it’s almost confirmed that GAA would be opened again for exploration for players.
Kaedehara Kazuha and Klee’s re-run banner is expected in Genshin Impact version 2.8
Considering the tweet released, we can expect that there would be a Kaedehara Kazuha. Also, the GAA islands are based around Klee, so, it is expected that there might be a Klee re-run banner. And also, among the Inazuma 5* characters, the Yoimiya rerun is pending.

The possible rerun banners might be of Kazuha, Klee, and Yoimiya. Also, there might an event whereby completing the tasks players would be able to earn some in-game currency with which they would be able to redeem a Fischl. Most probably players would require 2000 of the event currency to redeem Fischl.
Genshin Impact has also tweeted about Heizou. Heizou is the expected new 4* character of the game. Also the first male catalyst user and he is an anime character. Some leaks also suggest that day and night mechanisms would also be introduced in the GAA islands.
Players can expect rewards, free characters, and many events in version 2.8
The last time when the GAA islands were released and open for exploration for the first time, players got some great rewards, lots of chests, quests, and events. All of them rewarded players with a ton of primogems, mora, and other important materials for the game.

So, players can expect to get lots of rewards, a free character, and a ton of great events. Also, the GAA islands completely different vibe from the rest of the Teyvat. It might be possible that the GAA islands later would be confirmed as a yearly event.
