Hu Tao is coming home.
Everyone knows Hu Tao is releasing today, March 2, in Genshin Impact, but it seems many players are still confused as to when the exact time her banner will release on the America server. Moreover, it’s even more confusing when some players on Twitter already obtained Hu Tao, while others still need to wait. We’re here to help and explain everything.
miHoYo officially announced Hu Tao will release at “18:00 Server Time” on March 2. The Genshin Impact America server’s time is set to Eastern Time.
This means that Hu Tao will release at 6 PM ET on the America server.
If you’re on Pacific Time, that’s 3 PM PT. Lastly, if you play on the America server, but live somewhere else in the world, we’ve got several time conversions for you here, which also works as a countdown.
If you play on the Europe server, Hu Tao will be available at 12 PM ET.
Lastly, Hu Tao is already available in the Asia server, since 5 AM ET. This is why you’re seeing many players on social media who already flaunt their Hu Taos around. They play on the Asia server. In case you’re wondering, I do too, and that’s how I took the screenshot you see above.
Overall, players in America server need to wait the longest time for Hu Tao to release.

If you’re planning to pull Hu Tao and invest into buying Primogems, or even have the financial means to whale for her, you might check out the Staff of Homa. It’s Hu Tao’s weapon of choice and a new five star weapon currently available in the Epitome of Invocation banner.
