    PS4 Bank Heist Bug [GAME BREAKING for completion]

    I am playing on PS4 and have potentially discovered a game breaking bug, if you want to 100% the game anyway.
    I bought the digital version a few years ago, and played the bank heist. It shows in my player progression that I have everything except a document and some loot items. However, after recently re-installing the game to finish it completely, the sphere to enter the bank heist mission is not there. I went to the PSN page for the bank heist to try to install it again, but its unavailable because now the game includes the DLC. I uninstalled and re-installed the game 3 times, started new save files, power cycled the ps4, you name it, and nothing makes the sphere appear and nothing makes the newspaper in the clock tower to trigger the objective readable either.

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    I contacted SE support but they were completely unhelpful and didn't seem to even read my question (It took three separate exchanges for them to read that I was playing on PS4, as I had stated several times throughout the first two e-mails.) Even then they offered no real help except to power cycle the system.

    I personally think it's an issue with the host file on PSN, but I'm not sure as I dont know if anyone else has the same problem. I check my "Installed DLC" tab on the information page of the game, and it only lists the three resource packs. Yet in the game it shows the extra client job completed, and I'm able to view the documents and collectibles I DO have from the heist.
    Any help is greatly appreciated. I love this game and the bank heist is my favorite mission.

    Thanks

    Hi, I too ran into this issue. Not sure if you managed to figure it out or not but, I stumbled onto the fix. I noticed when I went to the store page that instead of saying "Start" it was saying "Download" which I found to be odd. So, I clicked download and it started "The Bank Heist DLC" Download which you figure happens when you install the game but, No! So, just go to the Thief store page and click "Download" to download "The Bank Heist DLC". Of course I assume after you reinstall the game that is. After I figured this out I logged right into the game and sure enough a message popped up in main menu of game saying it installed and was active. Hopped into my game and it was being tracked and I was able to interact wit the newspaper in The Clock Tower. As of this reply I'm out front the mission able to play "The Bank Heist". Good Luck to you! =)
