I also tried it with CivilizationVI_DX12.Exe in the same folder and got the launcher again. Did you point to a sub-folder that looks much different than mine?
That launcher is a complete mess.
Took me over 10 minutes to start Civ VI and maxed out my hard drive usage.
edit - I just created a shortcut to CivilizationVI.exe on my desktop. works fine.
