Epic Games have just announced that the account merging system has been delayed until early 2019. As first announced back in September, the upcoming merging function is targeted at players that had created multiple accounts in order to play Fortnite on different consoles.
Find the official statement below:
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.
We’ll keep you updated when more details emerge.
