Summarize your bug We were doing Research and Rescue. The mission went fine until we got to the part about defeating the Escari. We did this mission twice, beating the Escari both times. The first time, the trash mobs did not spawn. The second time they did. However, once the fight was over both times, the mission did not progress to the next phase nor did it end.
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play the mission, I suppose.
What happens when the bug occurs? The mission stalls indefinitely.
What should be happening instead? The mission should progress or end.

Without being able to complete this mission, we cannot complete the Sentinel questline to access Legendary contracts.

I can confirm this bug - I am in the mission right now after defeating Escari. All of us are just hanging out waiting for something to happen. It's been several minutes.

Pretty sure this is what happened to me twice: Everyone shot down Escari very quickly.

My group did, we unloaded all ultimates on him and he was down in about 10 seconds or less.

Ran into the problem, the squad just has to all die to force a respawn. Once the forced respawn happens the ending dialog plays and mission complete. There is a pool nearby for everyone to drown in.

Had this happen three times.  Pretty sure it is because we melted him before he could finish talking.  This is all post day one patch.

 

Edit: Going to try this solo and let him finish his spiel before killing him and let everyone know.

 

Edit2: Letting him go through his schtick let the mission complete.

Saturday Feb 23 19:20 hours Eastern Still bugged. I thought maybe we were killing the Escari too fast but we took our time and still no progression.

Just wait it out. My group melted the Escari quickly too, then nothing. waited a while, was about to try and quit, then it completed.
