Through Epic Games, you can connect several different accounts to your Epic Games account, such as Facebook, Steam, Twitch, Xbox, PSN, and Nintendo. This is useful for making sure you have cross-progression available to you, avoiding any loss of progress and inventories.

Epic Games try to discourage customers from disconnecting their accounts for a variety of reasons. Sometimes issues can arise between these connections or you may just want to start Fortnite from scratch, so today, we are going to show you how to unlink an Epic Games account if you wish to for any reason.

Three Reasons Why You May Not Want To Unlink Your Epic Games Account

  • Game progress and game purchases are stored through your Epic Games account, so when disconnected you will lose access to that data from your console.
  • Once disconnected, you cannot add a different console of the same type to your Epic Games account.
  • If you sign in to your Epic Games account using a console or platform that was disconnected, a brand new Epic Games account will automatically be created, with no game progression.
