After the recent 8/2/2022 184.108.40.206 hotfix update, whenever I attempt to run the game from my Steam client. The BattlEye Launcher window instead pops up and what used to take less than a minute to have the game .exe running and taking me to the character-selection menu; now is taking upwards of 10 minutes and counting to see anything happen (and still the game cannot seem to launch).
I have tried:
1. Verifying the game files
2. Uninstalling and reinstalling the game, before verifying the game files
3. Setting both the destiny 2 and BattlEye launchers to "Run as Admin"
4. Scanned "urlmon.dll" and have found no virus or malicious alerts on the file, so I cannot tell why BattleEye has blocked loading it
5. Rebooting PC after all of these attempts
So far I am still in the same position as I have been for the past 2 hours with no progress on figuring out how to get BattlEye to launch the game when it was just working yesterday prior to the Hotfix update. Any and all help on how to fix this is appreciated.
