So yesterday I was finally able to "avoid" the bug. It wasn't a painless solution, I warn you.
After several hours of trying everything (restarting the mission, killing them all, burning down the longhouse,..), even with the inestimable help of @UbiWan (thanks again), I just gave up and started other missions, mysteries, etc. BUT I just kept feeling uncomfortable and something told me that I needed to restart once again. That is why I came back to the previous mission, the Londen final, finished it and then restarted the Brewing Rebellion mission again. YES, this erased hours of game, and it was heartbreaking, but also worth it. Here's what I did differently this time:
- I didn't had any more missions going on at the same time, besides those which are inevitable, you know. I finished everything I could before starting BR.
- I didn't kill any enemy before arriving to the longhouse: low profile all the time.
- I waited for every animation to finish. When I approached the Buckingham longhouse, it popped the 'try to force the door open' message up and then I waited (without touching anything or even moving) for Sigurd and Eivor to finish their dialog and then for Sigurd to make his move of asking for help, etc. I didn't do any of those things the first time: I tried to open the door right away I arrived to the longhouse.
I lost several hours of game, but at least now I can go on with the rest of the story. I hope this is helpful for you!

This is a bigger embarrassment than the face melting glitch in Unity. I think we should all take some time and just ponder what the hell we've been going through for the last week and a half.
I MYSELF ran into this problem day 1. Had reset my saves but to no avail. I said, you know what? Im NOT WORRIED! Ubisoft will have this covered in the next 2-3 days TOPS. So i went out pledging to every other place possible. I collected all the abilities, carbon ingots, and sync points. I even killed most of the order! I came back checking this forum 10 times a day, day after day... after day... after day. To find absolutely jack from one of the most prestigious and funded game companies in the world! NO WAY am I starting over and giving up all that I've got.
I EVEN KNOW HOW TO GET INTO THE LONGHOUSE. You can use level 2 of the dive of the valkyries to break barred doors to get in. But it doesnt matter if there is no mission objective to go to. I am actually getting second hand embarrassment for the devs in this chat because I think we all know deep down that they either don't know how to fix it, or just dont care. We have sent in clips, game files, and everything we can to help these people who half the time dont even respond. The magic in alot of us has died as we are now completely no longer immersed in what once was a good game.
People wanted to play this game to escape from the hell hole of 2020. This was supposed to be the turning point. It seems not even the small stuff can go well nowadays.

I do apologise that some of the conversations within this thread have become a little disjointed - this is due to a thread merge I performed yesterday. Please rest assured that the investigation into this issue has not only just started - the thread I merged was just a little older, so the messages referred to our progress a few days ago.
@Sword_Gas Thank you for submitting your save files and those screenshots! I've uploaded the .zip folder to the devs' investigation for review now.
@Peronella I am sorry to hear that you lost so much progress when reloading a previous save, but it is really great to hear that you found a workaround and have been able to progress since. Thank you for sharing it here in the thread as well, it may well help other players with the issue in the meantime while the devs are investigating.
@Jmdattoma We are actively investigating this issue and hope to share an update soon. I am sorry to hear that you have been experiencing it for so long, and would like to reassure you that it is being taken seriously.
@Jasette I will go to your case right away and submit those to the devs, thank you!

I'm wondering how long it will take...
I'm unable to progress science one week.
Ubisoft, any update on this case?

Seems to be having the same issue as everyone else on brewing rebellion when it comes to forcing the door open on the long house, Sigurd and hythem just watch, tried everything to re set it from starting new quests, pledging to different areas, getting rid of all enemies in the area and trying to open the door completely undetected, nothing seems to work.
im now at a stage where I can’t continue the story and complete other areas of the map unless I complete this mission so UBISOFT! pleaseeee get this resolved soon because I’m absolutely loving this game!

Still waiting for the brewing rebellion to be fix.Ubisoft should just implement restart mission from the beginning option because i’ve been waiting since the first week it came out. 86 hrs in i got excalibur killed most of the order that i can without the story killed legendary animals all the other alliance missions literally can’t do much else i’ve even killed the witches of delarian or however you spell it. Can’t advance in the story please fix soon or give me a refund
Same problem here, my previous save game is 30h before. I’m stocked with the mission.

OK, now I don't feel like I'm the only one dealing with this. Ubi needs to resolve this or no more continuing for me...

Well they finally updated the known bugs thread, and still didn't add Brewing Rebellion to the list. Guess we shouldn't expect a fix anytime soon.
@momobeast7 it’s weird too since @ubi-woofer is OP of the known issue thread and is the one who has been posting here. Maybe just an oversight? But a pretty annoying & discouraging one if so...
“thankfully” I’m much slower than most of the posters here so while I’ve logged tons of hours I still have more to go stop and smell the roses people! Go fishing! Fall for childrens’ pranks!

As I was playing a little bit last night I came to the conclusion that those of us that have no save to go back to are probably going to have to start new, Could be wrong but before you dump any more time you might want to consider that. I will probably just come back after I am done with 2077 as it probably be another month before they can recreate this and another till they fix it if they even can. CDPR got a lot of flack for their delays but at least they probably will not release a broken game.
@corbae welp I am 100% not going to start over. And the longer I wait for the fix the less likely I am to recommend this game to my friends. Especially since it seems they have no idea what’s going on so much to the extent that they won’t add it as a known issue...
I’m already annoyed that you can’t properly turn off the grotesque confirm kill graphic as it still shows the majority of the time even when you have it turned off. I just want confirm kill to look & sound like what it did in Odyssey Kassaaandraaaaaaaa
but I haven’t bothered reporting that because it’s less important to me than being able to progress with the story.
Randvi prolly hasn’t seen Sigmund in years at this point
Is not sense, I’m a veteran of assassin’s creed and in this one I make focus for the 100% of territory before to do all the story at once. So I have 70h of game with level of player 300. I don’t want to lose 30h of game for a bug it’s ridiculous. I always loved this saga, but for the first time I’m disappointed. This meaning not just loose the data but even the desire to continue. I want waiting a week without doing nothing.
