Bug with Xbox One Elite Controller on PC

Recently I bought a Xbox One Elite Controller to use in games on my PC and I have noticed that when I open up Battleborn and it begins the sign in process it crashes my connection to steam and I cannot get it back unless I close the game down or unplug/disable the controller, this is the only game I have opened that does this. I would appreciate if someone can find out the cause and fix it, I am on Windows 7 if that matters at all, otherwise my hardware is fine I never really have many issues with fps etc in the game just this sign in issue is a problem as I do not wish to have to constantly remember to unplug the controller every time I sign into Battleborn, oh and once I am signed in I can reconnect the controller and it works fine, like I said just the sign in part is the issue.
