So, someone on the discord said they updated their gpu and it worked. I noticed mine had a update too and I did so and now it works fine. You could try this. But im not confident that this solution will last long.
Edit: this is still working for me. Anyone still having the loading screen problem you could try this and it could possibly work for you. I have a AMD RX 580.
I have the same issue, when I launch the game the intro scene plays but with no sound for some reason and then freezes when it begins to load screen to get into the main menu. I use an Nvidia graphics card and have tried updating the drivers for it but still not having any luck at resolving the issue.
I'll keep you posted if i find a solution that works for me.
