Game still crashing at launch in 2019

Just coming back to the game after a 2 year or so break. Before I left, my game crashed at launch with a black screen. I uninstalled the game then, and since then have upgraded my computer. I went to install the game and when I attempted to launch, the same issue I had 2 years ago, is still happening.

Any info on how to resolve the issue would be awesome. I’ve tried uninstalling avast, Logitech G Hub, Corsair iCue, reinstalling and then uninstalling Razer Synapse, and every other solution I’ve been able to find so far.


The black screen issue is generally directly related to the Razer Synapse software. I would recommend carefully following all steps in this post, including the manual file removal.
