Strike City Cannot Progress
I cannot progress past Strike City as when I reached the end of the level for the first time, when Raz picked up the mirror shard, it was invisible, and after slotting it into the mirror, I was dumped unceremoniously back into the bowling alley.
I did see this in the known issues section, and I also believe it might have been caused by the ladder that I 'creatively climbed' while trying to test if I could jump from the ball. (I really wanted any potential figments hidden up there and was not aware the ladder would be part of a linear flow to the level)
Strike City now shows up in the brain tumbler, and is still accessible from Ford, and when I complete the level the correct way, the shard is in the brain, but I can't interact with it. I get stuck in the mouth and have to exit the brain.
This is happening to me on Xbox Series X, and a game reboot also did not solve the problem. Essentially I've confused the game and it thinks that I haven't completed something that I have. This is the last mission I have at the moment, and my progression is completely blocked behind this.
Hoping for a swift solution, and I shall apologize to that ladder and take it out for a drink when fixed. I didn't mean to take advantage of it in such an underhanded way.
(Other than this issue, I am completely in love with the game!)
Not sure if I am allowed to link things, but I do have a Youtube video showing off the glitched state of things. No footage of the actual glitched cutscene unfortunately. Link available upon request.
This was fixed in a previous hotfix patch.

Just got to this part to november 10th still glitches. Except mine acted a little different i got to the fragment and collected it and it booted me out of the level but it never accepted that I got the fragment i can still talk to ford and ask to go in his mind and the objective for the bowling alley still appears
I did the same thing, would greatly appreciate a patch! Or at the very least an acknowledgment that they are aware of this and it's being worked on? I was loving this game but there's no way I'd restart after all the time already invested in it.
damn wish i found this sooner lol, had the same issue on xbox game pass pc, hope they fix it ASAP, dont want to start again,

Another here with the same bug, on an XSX.
Stuck in Fords mind and unable to progress!

Same on Xbox One with game pass. Very disappointing
Hugo Sloberg commented
This same exakt glitch has happened to me on ps4 so its probebly a glitch in the code
Cosima Radu commented
Same issue for me too. I'm playing the game on PS5.

Exact same issue here. Went up the "unclimbable" ladder, progressed to the end, invisible shard and then booted back to the construction site upon return.
Was loving the game up to that point so it's disappointing I cannot progress from here. Spent so much time exploring and finding figments that starting over seems like a serious chore.
Hopefully we can get a fix ASAP :)

Same exact issue.
Screenshot and video included there. Really hope this can get fixed asap...
Same exact thing happened to me, can't find a fix. Completely ruined the game for me and sucks because now I'll likely never go back and play it
Jason Evans commented
I have, 1 for 1, the exact same issue.
It's a shame too, because I was really loving this game.
Same issue for me. I'm on PC through Steam.
Having same issue on XSX: are our savegame fixable or we have to start a new game?

Just wanted to post that I’m experiencing this issue as well, also on an Xbox Series X. Similar situation to Jack - I got launched to another part of the level, saw the ending with the invisible shard, and now am unable to complete the level. Hoping for a quick fix so I can continue the adventure!
This has also happened to me, very frustrating! Hopefully they can patch in a fix quick! This is such a big blemish on an otherwise great game,

Same issue, I got randomly launched to the end of the level whilst riding a bowling ball and stupidly carried on through the tunnel, now I can't complete the level. Please fix as I love this game, but not enough to replay from the start so soon.

Having same issue on PS5.
It happened to me the exact same thing.
Please do something
Facing the same issue, in cutscene shard was invisible, now its stuck in the brain and can't trigger any action with it.
I'm having this problem on PC's game pass version, to help with troubleshooting im attaching save game files from
- maybe it will be useful.
Other than that the game is great :)
