I am pleased to say that this issue with the "Winchell the Robesfree" world event should now be fixed as of today's patch (1.0.4). Please update your game before playing again, and you should find that the crate spawns in and can be handed in for the quest to be completed! It's great to see that a few of you are already confirming this.
Please let me know if there are any further issues with this world event and I'll reopen the investigation with the devs.
@Gokislav Could you please open a separate thread for this issue and include a video of your inability to do both? This thread is exclusively for the issue with "Winchell the Robesfree" and I don't want it to be derailed. Thank you

I'm STILL not able to complete the quest because the guy won't talk to me when I bring him that box. There's no option for conversation. And, yes, I have the latest updates and patches. HELP!

Dear all, this bug is far from fixed.
Posting on 16th February 2021.
I have cleared this game, all but for this final mystery, preventing completion of 2 trophies.
I don't see the point in posting video as requested of others, the problem is exactly as reported by them:
Start mystery by talking to Winchell
Move to nudist camp
Talk to nudist-in-chief
Steal clothes chest
Return to Winchell, who acts disinterest ed
Throw box off cliff in frustration and contempt
Unwittingly ruin mystery completion as box fails to respawn for a further attempt.
Please can you resolve or remove this mystery?
I'd dearly love to complete this game and don't fancy a further 150+ hours of game time to do it all again, just for the sake of this glitch?
Hello there @HoriZzonZz-UK! Welcome to the forums
I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble when completing this mystery. This issue was marked as resolved following TU 1.0.4. Thanks for providing the steps you've taken during the mystery.
Have you been able to fast travel away and come back at a later time to see if the clothes box respawns at the nudist camp?
As this issue was marked as resolved, we would ask you for a video that shows the issue still persists on the most recent update of the game. We can then pass this along for a closer look. Thanks!
@ubi-borealis still an issue.
Quest just keeps looping after the dialogue with the chief nudist.
Yes, I've tried fast travelling.
I've tried killing winchell.
Ive tried praying to Odin.
Still a problem.
Very disappointed in Ubisoft after enjoying and platinum trophying the following titles of yours:
Tom Clancy division 1 and 2 / Far Cry 3, 4, 5, New Dawn and Primal / Rainbow 6 siege and ghost Recon wildlands.....
Where / how do I upload your requested video?
Thanks for the video, @HoriZzonZz-UK! I've passed this along to the development team for a closer look.
If we require any further information from you, we will reach out to you within this thread. In the meantime, please keep an eye out within our News & Announcements forum for future updates.
Hello there @HoriZzonZz-UK!
At this moment in time, the development team is still investigating the looping cutscene during this mystery further. There's no new information to share regarding the status of the investigation currently. Please be assured that any updates will be shared either in this thread or within the News & Announcements forum once they're made available.

So I was having the same problem as the people who brought the box to Winchell but had no dialogue options.I grabbed the box and placed it next to his tent which is slightly lower down the hill and this seemed to have worked!
Hello there @Red-Valkyrie! Welcome to the forums
I'm glad to hear that you've been able to complete this mystery! From my own playthrough, I remember having to leave the box by Winchell's tent, rather than next to him on the top of the hill. It took me a couple of attempts to find this out, so this may not be clear for other players as well. If you're able to collect the box of clothes from the nudist camp, I'd recommend trying to place the box by his tent first to see if this triggers the interaction with him afterwards.

I’m almost 350 hours into my game, on PS4, and finally focusing to tie up loose ends and platinum. I completed everything, except for a handful of world events, one of which is Winchell. The crate doesn’t spawn. I can talk to him, talk to her, I ended up with that weird loop of angry semi-nudes after disrobing, and had to reload out of that, I’ve tried fast traveling, other recent reloads, though obviously I had nothing from before I first encountered the event months ago. Then tonight I tried starting a new game and getting through to England, then completing this event, which worked properly, and following that, reloading my main (basically, but not quite complete) game, as this was a fix for others to get a newly spawned crate. Didn’t work for me, though. I noticed in the fresh game, Winchell says more to explain the situation in the initial chat, and in my main game, upon initiating conversation, he’d only say the last bit about giving them what they deserve, as if Eivor is already clued into the basic situation. So it’s not a fresh start to the event, no matter what I try here. Any help you can offer to get full territorial completion?
As an aside, the whole area seems bugged for me. I’ve come across 4 avenge player quests around the “dancers” camp in the last few days, and upon hitting triangle to interact with each one, nothing happens and the body is just there. No quest, no confirmation. And today I freed a trapped wolf in the bushes right next to it, and it was happy enough to accompany me, but I didn’t get a skill point, which I have for those under normal circumstances in the past.
ETA: right after posting this, went back to my game and saw a 5th avenge player body, this time in the water by the path, that still just fizzles after interacting.
