Fortnite players take pride in collecting favourite skins, gliders, harvesting tools, and other cosmetics through the seasons and chapters. If players have the game on multiple platforms, they may have had a couple of Epic accounts they now need to merge. But is this still possible? Find out the answer here to the much-asked question: can you merge Fortnite accounts? Answered!
Merging Accounts in Fortnite
Epic Games added cross-play to Fortnite in the early seasons of Chapter 1. At this point players were able to play with other gamers across all platforms, and this is still what happens today. This is also when account merging became possible. Players who had a Fortnite account on console and another on PC could combine the two and have all their cosmetics and progress in one Epic account.
Unfortunately for those players who missed out one this period of time, this is no longer an option. Merging accounts is not available for any player now, and Epic Games have explained that Player Assist agents are not able to help with this either.
The only options available to players is to connect an Epic account with third-party accounts via Account Connections at Epic Games. This does not merge two different accounts but connects third-party accounts such as Steam, Nintendo, Playstation, and Twitch to the Epic Games account.
If you have any problems with your account it may be worth contacting Epic Game customer support, but not for any account merging assistance.
That is all we have on Epic Games account merging, or lack thereof, but if any news changes we will be the first to let you know! Next up, why not check out how to fix the Fortnite ‘waiting in queue’ error. Good luck!
