Game stuck on initial "Press A to start" with no sound

Just downloaded the latest patch last night while I was online. At first I lost contact with the servers and couldnt do anything online but was still able to continue playing. When I got home and turned it on today it is now stuck on the Forza Horizon 4 Press A to Start screen (pressing A doesn’t accomplish anything), the very first thing you see, and has no sound. I have uninstalled it and re installed it with nothing changing. This is definitely frustrating at this point. Wonder what to try next?
