Given the bizarre system lock nonsense that players discovered when logging into Fortnite accounts on the PS4 version of Fortnite, many players undoubtedly created new accounts in order to be able to play with their friends. With the groundbreaking announcement that Sony will now be starting a Fortnite cross-play beta, Epic Games has already started working on some solutions to help out players who had created an extra account and would prefer to have their progress merged into a single one.
In a tweet from their official Twitter page, Epic games revealed that they would be creating a system that will help players merge the purchases from two separate accounts into one. They also mentioned that they would be devising a way for players to unlink an account from a console and then relinking it to another system.
Here’s the original tweet.
1) An account-merging feature to combine Battle Royale purchases, coming in November.
2) Enabling unlinking a console from one Fortnite account, and relinking to another Fortnite account. Coming in a few days.

As you can see, Epic Games is already hard at working coming up with fixes for the mess created by Sony’s initial refusal to allow cross-platform play. By November, both of these fixes will be live, and players who were forced to create an extra account just to deal with Sony’s stubbornness will be able to enjoy a more streamlined Fortnite experience.
