2K Launcher Sightings

A thread on ResetEra notes that a 2K Launcher has started popping up when certain 2K games are run on Steam. There's a screenshot of the launcher and posts confirming that this showed up not that long ago in Civilization VI and Mafia III. The thread was provoked by it now appearing in the Mafia: Definitive Edition, so the implication is its use is becoming more widespread.

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.
I just created a shortcut that points to C:\Steam\steamapps\common\Sid Meier's Civilization VI\Base\Binaries\Win64Steam\CivilizationVI.exe and it still brought up the launcher. 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?

Mine was in "C:\Program Files\Epic Games\SidMeiersCivilizationVI\Base\Binaries\Win64EOS\CivilizationVI.exe"
If it's a Steam thing, there is another workaround.

Your link got me squared away. No more launcher. Thanks!
