Epic Games has provided an update on the long-awaited Account Merging feature which was set to come to Fortnite in the near future.

Account Merging would allow players to merge Epic Accounts from any platform to use combine their stats and inventories into a singular account. This is necessary due to the recent addition of cross-play with PlayStation 4.

Heya folks,In our previous blog about Account Linking we stated:“In November, we’re going to release an “account merging” system so you can combine multiple console-linked accounts to transfer Battle Royale cosmetic item purchases, lifetime wins, V-Bucks, and Save the World campaign access.”

Due to some ongoing technical concerns, we will be delaying the Account Merge feature until early next year. 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. 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!

Thank you for all of your patience while we continue to work on completing this tool.

This announcement is sure to upset many who have been waiting on the feature for some time. What are your thoughts? Let us know!
