Sony is continuing to take measures in order to prevent cross-platform play from reaching its full potential. It has been confirmed that the company is now blocking PlayStation 4 players from accessing their Fortnite account on Nintendo Switch, which was recently released via the Nintendo eShop. Upon trying to log in, PS4 users are met with the above error screen and the following message:
This Fortnite account is associated with a platform which does not allow it to operate on Switch. Nether the Fortnite website nor Epic Customer Service are able to change this. To play Fortnite on Switch, please create a new account.
