Do you guys have any Idea how to fix this? my red launcher used to work but for some reason after the update it didnt.

i can still play the game if i directly open it but it wont connect to my red launcher so i can't also save my progress thru cloud. it kinda feels like i am playing a pirated game. i bought this game in epic games.

I've been having this problem and neither of these fixes worked for me, not even the clean reinstall. Instead here's what I had to do to fix it.

Open Steam > right click game in library > Properties > at the bottom in the "Launch Options" bar type --launcher-skip

This will bypass the launcher entirely and open the game directly through steam. Hope this helps!
