One of the most anticipated upcoming “Fortnite” features will, unfortunately, take a little while longer to come to fruition. Developer Epic Games announced on Thursday that the ability to merge player accounts between the PS4 version of “Fortnite” and other versions of the game has been delayed to 2019.

The feature was originally supposed to come in November, shortly after Sony made it possible for PS4, Xbox and Nintendo Switch players to play together. It will allow players who primarily play on PS4 to transfer any level progress, cosmetic purchases and their in-game V-Bucks balances to the Xbox or Switch versions of “Fortnite.”

There was a minor uproar when the Switch version launched in June and players realized they could not use their existing accounts from PS4 due to arbitrary restrictions by Sony.

Now, Epic says account merging will come “early next year.” The delay is reportedly due to “ongoing technical concerns.”
