    Hello there @liahim13,

    We don't yet have any new updates to share from the development team regarding "A Brewing Storm." We are unable to speculate on any ETAs for fixes when these have not been announced by the developers. As soon as we have any new information to share from the ongoing investigation into this quest, we will let you know within this thread and in the News & Announcements forum.

    Thank you 🙂

    @ubi-borealis

    Has Ubisoft got any celebration plans for the upcoming 1 year anniversary?
    Just over 100 days to go!

    From and including: Friday, 13 November 2020
    To and including: Tuesday, 6 July 2021

    Result: 236 days

    It is 236 days from the start date to the end date, end date included.
    Or 7 months, 24 days including the end date.

    236 days in to a game breaking bug and we are still getting the auto response of - 'don't know when it will be fixed. Just keep coming back to check.'

    @liahim13 News and announcements state that 1.3.0 will be released in late summer with 'A brewing storm' listed as still under investigation.
    If it is addressed at all, I would speculate that November would be the earliest we would see anything.

    Hello everyone,

    I'm pleased to say that the development team have notified us that a fix for the persisting issues in "A Brewing Storm" is now scheduled for release in a future update. The exact release date and patch number are not yet confirmed, however as soon as we have these details available to us we will share them here in this megathread and through updates to the Known Issues list.

    I know that this issue has been ongoing for some time now, and I hope that the next patch will resolve any lingering issues that any of you may be having with this quest. If you have any questions, concerns or feedback to share with us in the meantime, please don't hesitate to reach out.

    @maxxsinner - I have seen that you frequently update this thread with your accounts of your continued experiences with these issues, and would just like to ask that you refrain from duplicating posts or making posts that may be perceived as spam. We are committed to updating affected players here in the thread and will continue to do so, so please watch out for those updates. Thank you.

    That is great to hear and appreciate the update. But I won't celebrate too early as the last fix didn't fix it.

    The exact release date and patch number are not yet confirmed, however as soon as we have these details available to us we will share them here in this megathread and through updates to the Known Issues list.


    So we just need to wait. No problems there. Have had plenty of practice.

    Going on for some time you say? Let's check how much time...

    From and including: Friday, 13 November 2020
    To and including: Thursday, 29 July 2021

    Result: 259 days

    It is 259 days from the start date to the end date, end date included.
    Or 8 months, 17 days including the end date.

    Can the fix be held of for 107 more days? To round it off to a year would be fitting.

    @Ubi-Woofer - Please explain where I have duplicated posts or have posted information that could be perceived as spam? All of my posts have been regarding how long it has taken Ubisoft to fix a game breaking bug and direct responses to support team updates. From an earlier support post -

    I welcome you to continue sharing your experiences and feedback regarding "A Brewing Storm" within this thread. The player support team will continue working with you all to try and get this issue resolved.


    So I am sharing my experience - Games broken. Can't play it. Still waiting.
    If it looks like I am duplicating posts, it's probably because nothing has changed since November 2020 for me.

    Games broken.

    Can't play it.

    Still waiting.

    Thanks for the update.

    Thanks for your reply, @maxxsinner.

    While we do appreciate you continuing to share your experience with other players, repeating similar posts in an almost identical format is no longer adding additional information to the thread or helping us to investigate the issue. We would prefer to keep the thread focused on the issue and, while waiting for additional information from the development team, not take it too far off-topic. Your posts which serve only to document the length of time the issue has been going on may be classed as spam if they continue in the same format, so I just wanted to give you a friendly heads-up on that. 🙂

    I fully appreciate that this is a long-standing issue, and we'll keep everyone updated here with the latest news as we receive it. To that end, we would also appreciate it if you could limit your replies to any new information that may be helpful to us or the team, to make sure the latest updates we provide are visible for players to find. Thank you! 🙂

    Seeing as the support forums are the only avenue of recourse available to me, how would you like me to voice my frustration?
    Or would you like me to be a good boy and sit in the corner until I'm told it's ok to come out?

    I was told to post my experiences with "A brewing storm" within this thread. My experience month on month is that nothing has changed and my posts reflect that.
    Would you prefer a "Yep, still broken" every month instead?

    Explain to me how documenting how long it has taken Ubisoft to repair a game breaking bug is off topic? It is literal metadata of the topic.
    And thank you for the friendly heads-up. If you could point me to the thread where I can safely vent about waiting 3/4 of a year to be able to play your game without fear of reprisal from the overlords, it would be appreciated.

    The posts that I would classify as off topic are the ones where I have to respond to support staff addressing me directly.

    So in the simplest terms, you are asking me to refrain from posting on this thread regarding the impotence of the support team other than their ability to hold a finger over the ban button and the utter disdain Ubisoft is showing their customers? Just stick to the topic of how my game doesn't work?

    Talk about exemplifying my point.

    Interesting that the known issues thread was updated the same day as @Ubi-Woofer post, but the known issues still states the this bug is still under investigation.
    I mean, I am not actually surprised that the left hand doesn't know what the right one is doing at Ubisoft.

    🤡 🤡 🤡 🤡 🤡

    This is getting more entertaining than the game itself!

    265 days into this absolute [censored] show, so only 100 to go until the one year anniversary of what must be the most complicated bug in history!!

    Let's go boys!

    Hello again @maxxsinner,

    In reply to your latest two posts -

    Seeing as the support forums are the only avenue of recourse available to me, how would you like me to voice my frustration? ... Would you prefer a "Yep, still broken" every month instead?

    Just as we have previously stated, you are welcome to continue to discuss the issue here and share your experiences. However, of late, the posts are not adding new information regarding the issue, and the thread is beginning to deviate away from discussing the core issue with "A Brewing Storm" and its investigation. It would be better to open a support case to voice your concerns with our service, support, or anything else than share it here, as any further off-topic activity or inappropriate discourse will result in infractions being applied as appropriate. 🙂 Thank you.

    Interesting that the known issues thread was updated the same day as @Ubi-Woofer post, but the known issues still states the this bug is still under investigation.

    We were updated as to the new status of the investigation on the same day that the Known Issues list was updated and I last posted, so this is why in the list the issue is listed as under investigation still, as I posted the news as soon as it became available to us. 🙂 I have asked the Community Team to update the list to reflect the issue's new status as pending fix.

    We will continue to update this megathread with news as to the deployment of the fix. Thank you to everyone for your understanding.

    Finally after almost a year, I have defeated DAG, so the bug has been fixed for me.
    I can now go back exploring England.

    @dam411 Hello there.

    Sorry that there has been a wait for this issue fix to be implemented, but thank you for coming back to the forums to confirm this is working as intended!

    Hello there!

    I apologise for the double post. I'm happy to share that the development team deployed a fix for "A Brewing Storm" in TU 1.3.1. This issue should now be resolved.

    If you are still unable to progress in "A Brewing Storm" after waking up, please don't hesitate to update this thread so we can investigate further. Please include a video which shows the following:

    • You have the latest Title Update installed on your platform. You can check this in the bottom right-hand corner of the main game menu.
    • You are unable to progress in the fight with Dag.


    I'd recommend uploading your video to a sharing platform, such as YouTube or Google Drive, as this will allow you to post a shareable link within this thread. We can then forward this to the development team for further investigation.

    Thanks! 😊

    Result: 300 days


    It is 300 days from the start date to the end date, end date included.
    Or 9 months, 27 days including the end date.

    Alternative time units

    300 days can be converted to one of these units:

    • 25,920,000 seconds
    • 432,000 minutes
    • 7200 hours
    • 300 days
    • 42 weeks and 6 days
    • 82.19% of a common year (365 days)



    300 days to fix a main mission, game stopping bug.

    Absolutely pathetic Ubisoft.
