I've seen a bunch of people saying this but none of the solutions have worked. I'm running Windows 10, I had Java Runtime 8 (121), uninstalled it over 6 times, rebooted each time and reinstalled. I even went back an update for Java. My game still crashes. It doesn't even pop up the game, it just crashes before it even opens.

Here's the crash log that I get on the new launcher enter image description here

And here's the one I get on the older launcher: enter image description here

For anyone wondering, my PC runs every other game I own perfectly (including Doom and Alien Isolation) so it doesn't seem to be anything wrong with my computer's capabilities.

The two important parts of your crash log are:

#  EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) at pc=0x000000005cfb6e7e, pid=360, tid=0x00000000000023e4


# Problematic frame:
# C  [atio6axx.dll+0xfa6e7e]

This is a known issue (though it's not a bug in Minecraft). The file atio6axx.dll is what Minecraft uses to talk to AMD/Radeon brands of video cards, and when it causes an EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) it means that there is a problem with those graphics drivers.

To fix this,

  1. Confirm that your graphics drivers are fully up to date.
  2. If they are fully up to date, this means there is a bug in the latest AMD drivers, and you'll have to wait for AMD to fix them. In that case you might want to report the bug to AMD.
