Hu Tao is probably one of the most anticipated characters in Genshin Impact and players and it seems like that we'll finally have the option to get him sooner than expected.
The release date of the Hu Tao banner isn't confirmed yet, since Kequing's banner is ending at the start of March and according to multiple leaks , Hu Tao should join the live servers on 2 March 2021.

- There has to be a four-star character that uses the same talent ascension books as the main five-star.

This means that the Hu Tao banner should include the following characters:
