Fortnite Stuck On Loading

You’re not alone, I’ve got the exact same problem. After updating, when I try to launch the game it gets stuck and frozen on a loading screen. I play on a pc, laptop, performance mode, and I never had this problem before.

It seems that the problem started from the installation of the most recent Fortnite v21.30 update.
