How to change your Epic Games display name, so that people you play with can see you with a new title

Epic Games

Summary List Placement

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.

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.

3. Enter your new display name twice.

4. Check the box confirming that you understand that display names can be changed once every two weeks.

5. Scroll to the bottom of the page and hit “Save Changes.”
