Mihoyo released a statement recently regarding the Lantern Rite Illumiscreen bug in Genshin Impact.

Genshin Impact is currently celebrating the Chinese year of the Ox with an in-game event called Lantern Rite. In this event, players can take part in brand new quests and minigames. The event quests and minigames have gained a lot of popularity among the player base.

There is one quest in the Lantern Rite called the Illumiscreen. In this quest, players have to dig up treasures according to a map. The second part of the quest called “Illumiscreen: II” currently has a bug where players dig up the designated spot but no treasure shows up. This is preventing many from completing the quest thus halting progression.

Recently Mihoyo, the creators of Genshin Impact released an official statement acknowledging the bug.
