I've noticed that I've encountered a blue screen more after the Chapter Four Season Three update, but it has occurred before. While the cause of the issue isn't exact, it typically happens at start-up. One way you can prevent Fortnite from getting stuck on the blue screen is by shutting Fortnite down each time you finish playing. Leaving it in a suspended state seems to increase the odds of a blue screen happening.
