    Halfdan won't go to his room so we can speak in private, he is just standing still. I already completed all the side activies in the castle, and halfdan just stands there and says we need to speak in private it but wont actually move.

    I have the same bug. I didn't have an issue with Orlog, but I did complete all the festivities, and Eivor even says time to speak to halfdan. Halfdan won't actually move to the private meeting. Very frustrating.

    Hi, I just spoke to someone at Ubisoft and they suggested posting here as they can't find any solution for the specific bug I have. I'm at Chapter 1 of War in the North, in Halfdan's room in Donecastre, and I'm unable to speak to him or trigger a scene, though he has the floating Quest/Celtic Knot above his head. He just paces with his dog. I've reloaded older games, closed the application, rebooted the PS4, etc. I've retraced the steps going back to the cliff where I'd spoken to Faravid but nothing helps. As far as I can see, as soon as I enter the room or get close to him, it should have this happen: "As you arrive, a scene will play to complete the quest." So, story and game are stopped cold until fixed.

    Hello there @LevBeard! Welcome to the forums 🙂

    Thanks for taking the time to report this. I'm sorry to hear that you're unable to interact with Halfdan to begin this quest. Thank you for letting us know what you have tried to resolve the issue, such as reloading older saves and retracing your steps, and for including an image.

    The development team are aware of this issue, and they are currently investigating further. I've passed your report along so they can take a closer look. If we require any additional information from you, we will reach out within this thread.

    In the meantime, I would recommend keeping an eye out within the News & Announcements forum for future updates.

    Thanks! 😊

    Thanks, here are some other references I found to this on your forums in case it helps to pinpoint it: https://discussions.ubisoft.com/topic/82397/stuck-on-quest-war-in-the-north?lang=en-US

    Including this one, describing my problem exactly, from Nov. 20, 2020: Stuck on quest : War in the north https://discussions.ubisoft.com/post/472032

    From what I've read, a cut scene apparently needs to be triggered to end this quest but I cannot find a way to trigger it.

    @jac049 In case anyone stumbles upon this and knows WHERE Halfdan needs to be moved to to trigger this scene, please let me know! I have him up in his room pacing around with his dog. Quest Celtic Knot above his head but no way to get him to start the scene which ends this quest.

    Hello there,

    I apologise for the delayed response. The development team has been looking into the issue wherein Halfdan cannot be interact with during "War in the North." We don't yet have any new updates to share from the investigation.

    If you have been affected by this issue, the development team are interested in collecting videos and save files for further investigation. If you are still unable to interact with Halfdan, please can you send us a video that shows the following:

    • Your current Quest log and objective
    • That Halfdan cannot be interacted with in his private quarters


    Can you also let us know if you took part in any of the festivities taking place at the feast prior to going to interact with Halfdan? If so, which ones did you take part in?

    Thank you 🙂

    I’ve been having this same issue for a while. When I contacted support they basically said there’s nothing they can do. I’ve completed almost the rest of the game and there has been no change in the Halfdan issue. It’s really frustrating. It may be time to give up on the game.
