Please accept my apologies for the delayed reply.
I can see that this issue is still being investigated by the development team at the moment. Once we have an update, we are going to let everyone knows through this thread and the patch notes.
@darthstrings - I'm really sorry to hear about your experience and thank you for sharing more details with us! I also checked your case and I can see that all of the details shared there have been passed on to the development team for investigation purposes.
@Spida219 - As I can't personally prioritize bugs, I can see that the development team are working on this issue. While we don't have an update on this yet, we're passing on every piece of information that can help in order to speed up this investigation, so all of our affected players can soon complete this quest
Apologies for any inconvenience caused by this and if you have any additional questions, please let us know.

I am having a similar issue. I killed the needle and then the game crashed. I reported the problem. Now the quest for pricking the needle shows as being non-completed, but when I select the quest, there is no quest marker on the map and no way to replay the scene to progress in the game. I am at level 320 on the game and don't want to start over. I am a huge fan of the Assassin's creed series, but this is really disappointing and makes me really unsatisfied with the game overall. I was hoping that the recent version 3.0 patch would have corrected the glitch given all the posts that have been talking about it for months, but was again disappointed that it did not. Ubisoft, please, please fix this bug or let the community of gamers who have written about this know when you will have a fix.

I'm lvl 408, 203 hours in, and have been waiting on this bug to be fixed for months. I've completed everything in the game except for the storyline which I can't progress because of this bug. I'm stuck doing festival junk and contracts until this is fixed. It's just not right.

Maybe... instead of releasing new content... they fix the bugs first?
I realize in a game this size, you are going to have bugs. Having worked in QA, despite best efforts something will slip through. You stop all further new development & address the current issues.
I played Odyssey almost a year after it was released... no more Ubisoft games @ launch.

So when will this be fixed? I’m concerned by your response to other post that this may never be fixed as it should have by now. This is really not cool Ubisoft you are letting a lot of people down

@desperadoz2010 I fixed it! You have to go near where the dice player is in the city and do the quest with the kid that stole the pie. You will see that you can explore the map to find the needle but it will take you to a house which will lead to the sewers. Then the quest restarts! Let me know if that works!
I'd like to reach out to you all with an update. I'm happy to announce that the development team intend to deploy a fix for "Pricking the Needle" in TU 1.2.2. This update will be deployed 15 June, 2021 at 2 PM CEST / 8 AM ET.
If you are still encountering issues with "Pricking the Needle" following TU 1.2.2, 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 the latest Title Update installed on your platform. You can view this information in the opening game menu in the bottom right-hand corner.
- That the issue continues to persists in-game following this update.
Additionally, please ensure that you have an up-to-date save uploaded to the cloud. We can then pass these reports to the development team for further investigation.
