Fortnite has dominated numerous platforms since launching its Battle Royale mode past fall, and while Nintendo dropped the official announcement that the game is now available for the Switch, players are already running right into a enormous problem whenever they played another stage, especially with PS4.
Several consumers on Twitter, such as Kinda Funny‘so called Greg Miller, have shared and posted an issue that appears to be impacting the newly-released Switch version of this game, so when you have an Epic Games accounts that formerly was connected on PS4, then you will be unable to log in and play Nintendo Switch and need to earn a new account .
The message Concerning the issue from Epic in-game can be found below:
“This Fortnite account is associated with a stage that does not allow it to work on Switch. Neither the Fortnite site nor Epic Customer Service are able to shift this. To play Fortnite on Switch, please make a new account. ”
While it’s easy enough to make a new account for the game, the real disadvantage will come down to the players who have already spent a significant quantity of time to the game which are trying to come over from PS4, in which it would theoretically have a fairly sizable audience. Crossplay between Switch and PS4 owners will not be set up , as supported by Epic Games’ PR Manager, although it’s worth a very beneficial PSA if you played before on PS4 you will have to create a fresh account for the Switch version.
Fortnite is accessible today on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, Mac, iOS, and will be arriving to Android this summer.
. @PlayStation, mend this.
Not letting me sign-in to Fortnite Switch along with my Epic account because it’s connected to PS4 is tone deaf and things more to fear than market dominance.
It does exactly the opposite of everything you want — it makes me consider going to Xbox to get Fortnite. pic.twitter.com/D9xqv9aWdF
