The pdate will be released on August 15, 2024, at around 10 pm PT. 

The game follows a similar release pattern to Genshin Impact and others. However, due to changes in plans and players complaining about the lack of content in version 1.0, the version 1.1 update was released ahead of its official schedule.

As a result, many players were confused about whether version 1.1 would end on August 6, 2024, or on August 14, 2024, as per the old schedule.

Thankfully, seeing Changli’s in-game banner and its end date as August 14, we now know that the version 1.2 update will be released on August 15, 2024.

Undoubtedly, many players want to hop into the new Wuthering Waves update as soon as it goes live. For them, here is a countdown timer for the update’s release time:
