    Yeah, I've had this glitch for about 3 weeks now.
    I'm done with Grantebridgescire and Ledecestrescire and I had the attack on Ravensthorpe already. After that, I've been working on the events and collectibles in East Anglia (without touching that area's quest line other than pledging it). I then got back to Ravensthorpe to build some facilities (stables and tattoo shop), following which neither the tattoo artist nor the stable boy were interactable, as were the shipwright and the barracks lady.
    The other NPCs that have been reported in this thread, namely Hytham, the Roman artifact collector, Randvi, fish boy are all interactable still.
    Starting the Yule fest didn't change anything.

    Didn't bother me that much because I've had enough other games on my backlog but now I'm just craving Valhalla and it kinda sucks that almost all meaningful ways of progression are glitched out.
    I don't get how a comparatively small dev/publisher like CDPR manages to crank out 2 substantial patches on 5+ platforms over the course of a week while a huge corporation such as Ubisoft just leaves dozens of known and reproducible glitches in their game for weeks (turning into months). I'm not one to sharpen their knives and pitchfork, it's just really sad because the game itself is great and it seemed much more... passionate than some of the earlier installments of the series.

    Hello all!

    I'd like to reach out to you all with an update. I'm happy to announce that the issue wherein settlement NPCs couldn't be interacted with is due to be fixed in TU 1.2.1. This update will deployed 27 April, 2021 at 1 PM CEST / 8 AM ET.

    If you are still encountering issues when interacting with settlement NPCs following TU 1.2.1, please don't hesitate to update this thread so we can take a closer look. Please include a video that shows the following:
    - You have TU 1.2.1. installed. You can view this information in the opening game menu in the bottom right-hand corner.
    - The issue still occuring in-game.

    Thanks! 😊

    @Ubi-Woofer don't mean to sound like a [censored], but what I said would happen is now happening and I'm even more [censored].

    The game is now on sale on xbox, a game I paid in full for over a month ago and still can not play.

    This is a joke, I hope you can sort something out on your end and get me a refund or something because this is just shocking now £59.99 for a game that I have had over a month and can still not play. Not to mention no real news on an update, no news on any form of compensation and to put it bluntly, no [censored] given on ubisofts side. This is likely the last time I spend money on a ubisoft product.

    I have the new motto for ubisoft. No news, No fixes and definetly no refunds.

    so basically, a majority of people didnt appear to be affected by this bug - but now the new xmas settlement thing got added, its ruined most peoples settlement?
    hahah

    Ubisoft thought they had problems before? Good luck now most peoples games are dead thanks to this, and even bigger bugs brought onto settlement by this newest Xmas add on.

    I want a refund at this point.
    Ive not played the game properly since like 3/4 of the way through November. Joke

    Here is the link to video showing that I can only speak to the merchant and blacksmith. I'm hoping you start refunding the game for those who ask for it since this bug makes it impossible to complete the game.

    Ey this needs to be handled now! Ubisoft released a broken game. We've been patient going on 6 weeks. Everyone here was cooperative, helpful, things started out nice, these are decent people, but what started as a post trying to help identify the problem has evolved into everyone here wanting a refund they deserve, and you owe.
    Yes, you owe them compensation regardless of the platform, and the retailer.
    The game is a complete mess, and instead of stabilizing the game, fixing bugs and glitches, you jerks wasted resources towards this Christmas themed party nonsense (in a game about assassination mind you) introducing new bugs in the process before fixing the old ones.
    You owe these people. [censored] do something to remedy the situation.

    I cannot interact with Randvi to report on progress, the tattoo artist, the cattle farmer in the Yule festival missions, the seer or the Roman artifact collector. Basically, I can’t progress at all now. I had truly hoped that the issues I’ve experienced from day one of this game would have been fixed in the last patch but sadly they haven’t. The game is only slightly less buggy on PS4 than it was at release.

    I can't talk to most people in the England settlement. The only ones I can talk to are the Yule festival ones. The problem started after I upgraded the Brewery and Settlement increased to 3. The Valka quest is also broken, along with the pick up the stolen booze quest from the brewery. I can't ring the feast bell either.

    Hello again everyone,

    As I've advised previously, this issue with interacting with settlement NPCs is scheduled to be fixed in an upcoming patch. I don't have the specifics of the patch yet (such as its release date or full contents) but as soon as more details become available, I'll share them here in this thread. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding in the meantime - I fully appreciate that this issue is preventing progress with developing your settlements and that you'd like to move forward with this as soon as possible.

    I would also like to ask that any issues with the Yule event are raised in a separate thread unless relating to the core settlement NPCs; this helps us to keep track of the two individual instances. Thank you. 🙂

    Answering individual replies below -

    @tperfecto12 Support cases on our website close automatically after four days of no response on the player side, but the automatic closure does not mean that our investigation(s) into an ongoing issue stops. 🙂 You don't need to worry if your case closes automatically if it concerns a known issue, as we are working on it and will provide updates when possible.

    @undlose Could you open a separate thread and provide a video of this issue please?

    @kodare97 A fix is scheduled for an upcoming patch - stay tuned.

    @smithy10GB We are grateful to you for sharing your account of this issue, and for providing the information we requested. I do apologise that the investigation has taken longer than the refund window offered by the Microsoft Store, and sadly can only reaffirm that we have no influence over their policies or processes. Only Microsoft could answer your queries relating to whether a refund could still be possible. In terms of the update, I will let you know further details as soon as I have them. As a quick request as well - please do mind your language and keep your posts suitable for the forums. 🙂

    @GTR31770 I'm afraid we cannot consult players regarding issues on Discord or similar - we require direct footage to be submitted. 😞 If on PC, you might be able to use the Xbox Game Bar options to record your screen - there's a guide on how to use it here for your future reference! We don't require any additional videos of this particular issue for the moment as a fix is incoming.

    @chriskean86 I'd just like to quickly clarify that the Yule Festival and seasonal content is free to all players, not a Season Pass item 🙂 There will be further seasonal events throughout 2021 as well. You can read more on this subject here if you'd like!

    @heartpunches I'm afraid I don't have any information regarding the timing of the fix and whether it will be deployed before the Yule Festival ends. I will do my best to find out more information and reply here on this subject, so please do keep checking back, as I'll provide an update if I do receive any additional information.

    @ubi-woofer so there is a fix? So why isn't it downloading to my ps4 right now please? This isn't a fix that should be bulked with others, this is a fix that should take priority, believe me, I have more bugs than the npc issue, but if this gets fixed it makes my game playable, please, send this fix seperate and asap

    Hello, I'm glad I found this megathread, since livechat is... well, let's just say I have a different opinion on what "livechat" actually means 😁

    I know you just said "No known release date", but I'm wondering if you can give us an estimate... are you (and I mean the devs more specifically) talking about 2 days, 2 weeks, 2 months, ...?

    Happy to read that the bug has been found in what must be some ****load of code.
