    So is there anything I can do if the bug happened to me? I’ve looked everywhere and I’ve seen some people say do mission 41 with a different character or try mission 22 again. Also, do I have to do mission 42 to continue or is it just optional?

    • AndrewJ

      yep, why would they fix this for steam but not ps4, very odd,
      i dont like the need to be connected to the internet to play the single player

  • Knuxie

    They should have patched an ending into the game instead…

    • ;^}

      Or you could not tell people who aren’t finished the game that the ending sucks and is unfinished.

      • Knuxie

        The ending doesn’t suck, because it doesn’t exist. You can’t spoil that which does not exist.

  • Allah Akbar

    this is inexcusable from konami. all this should’ve been fixed before the game releases
