[Player] Build won't launch on Mac if its name includes '&' or '<' character while generating the build

MacOS

-

Build won't launch on Mac if its name includes '&' or '<' character while generating the build. If the same build is renamed without using these characters and launched it shows an error that it may be damaged or incomplete.

Build successfully launches if it is generated without using above mentioned special characters or it is renamed with them.

Steps to Repro:
1. Find the attached project/Create a new project
2. Create a standalone build for the Mac OS
3. Name the build using '&' or '<' character Eg: D&D
4. Launch the build > Observe that it won't launch
5. Rename the build without above-mentioned characters and launch > Observe the error "<Build Name> may be damaged or incomplete."

Expected Result:
Build should launch on MacOS if it's generated using '&' or '<' in build name

Environment:
Occurs only on Mac

Occurring with:
2018.1.0b1, 2018.1.0a7, 2018.1.a5, 2018.1.0a2, 2017.3.0f1, 2017.3.0b10, 2017.3.0b7, 2017.3.0b1, 2017.2.0f3, 2017.1.0f1, 5.4.6f1

Workaround:
While creating the build, name it without using '&' or '<' character and then rename it after.

Note:
Working fine on Windows
