Now there is a problem. You cannot play Fortnite form a single account of PlayStation to an Xbox One right? Which means people had to make multiple Fortnite accounts in order to solve this problem.
How to merge multiple Fortnite Accounts
Fortnite cross-platform is a very big and huge news not only for gaming but for console manufacturers and cellphones companies as well. As I mentioned as you now can play with players from the different platform you, however, cannot have a single account to play on multiple devices right? For that Epic Games posted this solution on their Twitter account
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.

When cross-play was announced people had to face a very annoying problem. If you had a primary account for any platform let’s say PS4 and you have purchased a lot of stuff and you have a very high rank. If you make another dummy account on other platform let’s say Nintendo Switch and you play Fornite with your friends. You had v-bucks and skins and whatnot. Now the problem after cross-play is that you will lose everything from your other Fortnite accounts like everything in order to cross-play. You have to unlink your account from the Epic Games website and after that everything is gone. In the above Tweet, Epic Games will release an update which will solve this problem.
What do you guys think about cross-platform gameplay. If you are wondering about How to merge multiple Fortnite accounts then worry not Epic Games will release the update very soon.
