  • You can change your Epic Games name by heading to your "Account Info" page.
  • Once you change your Epic Games display name, you'll have to wait at least two weeks to change it again.
  • Your Epic Games display name is the name used to identify yourself in games like "Fortnite" and "Rogue Company."

Epic Games is the developer behind the multiplayer sensation "Fortnite." But there are hundreds of games on the Epic Games Store, and many of them make use of your display name.

You choose a display name when you sign up for an Epic Games account — it's how you identify yourself in-game and on other Epic platforms.

If you're tired of your current Epic Games name, you can change it at any time. Just note that once you can only change your display name once every two weeks.Advertisement

How to change your Epic Games name

If you're playing on Playstation or Xbox, changing your Epic Games name won't affect your gamertag or display name — those systems use your PlayStation Network and Xbox Live name, respectively.

But if you play on your PC, Mac, or Nintendo Switch, using a "Full" Epic Games account, changing your Epic Games name will change your name in Epic Games titles on those systems.

1. Open your web browser and log into your Epic Games Account if you haven't already.

2. Visit this Account Info page and click the blue pencil icon next to your display name.
