I too am having this issue, my log reads the same. Both the Epic games launcher and the game can be seen having various white...cursors, if they were, flashing around the screen. I reach the main menu, graphics are derpin and then crash. The fact it's affecting the game and my Epic Games launcher, specifically the Unreal Engine tab, makes me think it might be more Directx12/windows related.
I've put a lot of hours into the game prior to day, so it's worked before. I ran through the same steps as above, then finally wiped and reinstalled, but the issue remains, the game is not played anymore and it's unclear why.
