Epic Games has announced that Fortnite‘s cross-platform account merging has now been delayed until 2019.
Back in September, Sony finally lifted the gate allowing PlayStation players to finally play with gamers from other platforms – if they wanted to play Fortnite, that is… At this time, Epic Games also revealed that player’s accounts would be able to be merged bringing together progress, skins, and V-Bucks earned on other systems.
Originally this option to merge was due to arrive sometime this November, but seeing as November ends tomorrow, Epic Games has unveiled that it’ll be pushed back into 2019, specifically “early next year”. Epic didn’t reveal the reasons for the delay, just that there were some “ongoing technical concerns.” Maybe Sony’s cross-platform isn’t as cross platform as we’d hoped?
“We want to make sure that this process is thoroughly tested and working properly before releasing it to those of you currently looking to transfer purchases from other accounts to your primary account,” Epic Games said in a statement. “We’ll be sure to update you as we get closer to the release of the feature, which will include a web page on launch to help guide you through the flow!”
This news comes not too long after Epic Games also revealed that Fortnite‘s Save the World campaign would also be coming in 2019.
