Glad to see I'm not the only one however does not fill me with hope that this was reported in November yet this is still not fixed. Looks like this won't be fixed in the near future

@samarr08 Hey there! Thanks for reaching out with this. First I wanted to confirm your suspicion, yes - the megathread of known issues is non conclusive, and there's more bugs that the team are aware of than just those listed there. I'm curious to know if you experienced a crash at all when doing this quest? Or does the NPC simply never move?
I took hunwald to the first location and it kept saying to become anonymous I did and then this is the result now hunwald just stands there no quest marker on what to do next
Another patch yet still no fix.
Instead of releasing a half finished game for next gen consoles maybe next time spend the time getting it right for your paying customers. I thought I'd give AC another go as I enjoyed watching and learning about vikings but it's the same old same old with ubisoft
Absolutely dissapointed if it wasn't a digital version I had the game would be returned

So I’m trying to escort Hunwald to the town hall but there is no real objective marker and he just won’t follow - it’s like there’s no mission. At the time I tried to load another save but then the bug happened again I tried to pledge elsewhere , I tried everything and I assumed the bug may be fixed because I read others having similar issues- couple months later and nothing- and I’ve completed every other story mission and have noticed I can’t open up a new game without losing everything I have worked through so far
is There anyone else out there having the same issue???? Not to mention I coincidentally can’t get in contact with Ubisoft!

This is not resolved. I see this was initially reported in Nov 2020 and I just ran into the same issue in Jul 2021 while running 220.127.116.11. I can’t seem to go more than a quest or two without running into another major game halting bug in this game. So frustrating.
Hunwald is stuck in the sewer in the Homecoming quest. Is there any way to get him out? Please patch!!!

To work around, I had to go back into the sewer, manually mark the location of his house, then leave him behind. The quest mark jumps to Hunwald so you don’t know where to go without the manual waypoint. After arriving, Hunwald magically spawns at the house. Really not enjoyable game play.
Hello there @trffhhyuu6544ee!

Hello there @old_oliver! Welcome to the forums
I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble with Hunwald in "Homecoming." Thank you for taking the time to share your report with us.
I wouldn't be able to share an image of the map with you. @trffhhyuu6544ee discovered the workaround themselves without my assistance, so they may be able to share their steps in more detail for you.
I can tell you whereabouts Hunwald's home is in Lincoln, if that is of any help.
Let us know if arriving at Hunwald's house causes the quest to continue for you. If you're still having trouble, please don't hesitate to update us so we can take a closer look.

@ubi-borealis Yes the 18.104.22.168 update get it solved, Hunwald was stuck in sewer as I tried to exit the bandit camp and he wouldn't come out no matter what I do, I even went to his house and no cut scene was triggered. Then I saved it and exited the game and reload Hunwald magically appeared outside the old roman structure near the sewer exit and the cut scene trigger properly when I lead him back to his house again
