Fortnite crashes on launch

When I try to launch Fortnite the loading screen pops up and flashes black then the game crashes with the error, “An Unreal process has crashed: UE4-FortniteGame”. The error message in the directories is “Fatal error: [File:Unknown] [Line: 1109] GameThread timed out waiting for RenderThread after 30.00 secs”
