Its quite a long shot - but do you still have any programs running which use overlays, like MSI Afterburner or Asus GPU tweak, or sumsuch? Recently after one of the latest Win10 updates, the later made like every program crash after a few seconds, when it was on. If you are using the NVidia or Steam overlays, try disabling these as well. In case you can get into the menu of the game somehow (in Windows safe mode or whatever) try to set the game to window borderless with your desktop resolution, rather than "fullscreen". Hope it helps!

Unfortunately, I can't even get to the menus! I launched the game in safe mode via Steam and the same crash happened. I closed MSI Afterburner and I believe every other 3rd party program. Unless there is a hidden sneaky program I don't know about...

Thanks for your help!

Never ever happened to me. So ****** off !! Tried every solution available on the internet. 

Uninstalled the entire game and requested a refund from steam.

It is ridiculous that codemasters are not even bothered to come up with a proper fix for this issue which is faced by a lot of people.
