Fortnite won’t support cross-play between Nintendo Switch and PS4

Fortnite won’t support cross-play between Nintendo Switch and PS4

In this Reddit thread (and elsewhere on social media), players are claiming that even if they unlink their PS4 account from their Epic Games account, they still can't bring their progress over to Switch.

The Switch is a great platform for the title, what with its console/handheld hybrid status and the popularity of playing Fortnite anywhere and everywhere, on seemingly any device that can possibly play a video game.

After teasing an update that will allow players to gift items to one another, it looks like the new feature might be coming to the game soon. You can download it from the Microsoft Store here. The Switch version of Fortnite can offer portable gaming that a PS4 simply can't. Players only need to visit the Nintendo Switch eShop and download the game before they're able to jump into the chaos.

UPDATE: You can not move back and forth between PlayStation 4 and any other platform now - apparently now even if you've only logged on to a PSN for PS4 account for a moment. If you try and login to Fortnite on Switch, you'll receive an error message and there is no way to log out and try another account.

De Gea isn't the best paid played at Manchester United despite being their top performance in recent seasons. Cristiano Ronaldo might not be leaving Real Madrid after all.

The Verge noted that the same appears to be the case with the Nintendo Switch version, a fact that TechCrunch has since verified with an Epic spokesperson. But once you've used that account on Sony's PlayStation 4, you can no longer use said account on Nintendo Switch.

And now, it's also on the Nintendo Switch!

Bear in mind though that you can't change this username again on either account for two weeks, so make sure you're sure before you go ahead with this.
