A Possible Dragonspine Counter-Part of Liyue?
Similar to the situation of Dragonspine before version 1.2, The Chasm was also locked while its name is already revealed. The size of it is also close to Dragonspine making it a possibility to be released in future updates as part of an event.More About Dragonspine Here!
Highly Unlikely To Be Inazuma Region
While long speculated, the chance that the Chasm is the Inazuma region is pretty slim, since its mentioned by Kazuha that the traveler will need to cross the sea and "tempests" to get to Inazuma. This means that Inazuma may be on another continent, and not the Chasm.Inazuma Guide
Possibly The New Dendro Region?
Another region - the Dendroculus was also long speculated to arrive in the future. Many rumors point the region to be close to the already existing areas, making it a possible candidate for the Chasm region.Dendroculus - Release Date & Location Map
The Chasm - Release Date (Update 1.6 Or 1.7?)
Not Coming On Update 1.6
Based on 1.6 Livestream, there is no mention of the chasm. Considering that its rare that Mihoyo would keep such a big news secret, we can assume that the Chasm would not be featured in update 188.8.131.52 Update - Release Date & Patch Notes
Sea "Chasm": Summer Archipelago Announced
While the chasm isn't going to be released soon, a new "Chasm of the sea" area will be released: The Summer Archipelago. This new area will take place at sea instead and will bring new contents for a limited time.Midsummer Island Adventure - Summer Archipelago & Location
Released Around Version 1.8 Or More?
Following the previous update pattern of Mihoyo and the current teaser, it can be speculated that The Chasm would be released for version 1.8 or higher of the game, since Inazuma is rumored to be around in Update 1.7. Take note that this is merely a prediction. We shall inform you once official information has been released.
