Why is Fortnite not launching?

So I started up Fortnite on my pc and I clicked launch after it just updated. Then a screen came up with Fortnite and it said it was loading. So I waited and it closed the loading screen and came up with a message saying there has been a crash. So I tried a few more times and it said the same thing over and over again. If someone out there knos the fix to this problem please tell me, Thank you.


Try and reload the launcher completely. If that doesn’t work you could try and do a ‘repair’ on the game files. This can be done within the launcher by selecting cog wheel and then the ‘Verify’ option on the drop down menu.

Failing that, you should contact the support team directly.
