Multiplayer on pc not working

me and my boyfriend both got the game on epic game , everytime we join each other lobby one of us cant seem to join the other or get stuck on the loading screen till we get back stuck in the lobby whether we put it in private or multiplayer, friends it just does not work and we tried everything !!!
it seems like the multiplayer issues is becoming common , but for a game that cost 46$ CAD i was expecting to be able to play in multiplayer or at least with friends because playing alone is kinda boring.

Hi marie,

There are a few problems with multiplayer
They are working on a fix for the bugs in multi player

BTW: you can always use splitscreen temporarily
