When attempting to log on to the Switch version, players who faced the issue were greeted with this message:
“This Fortnite account is associated with a platform which does not allow it to operate on Switch,” the message reads. “Neither the Fortnite website nor Epic Games Customer Service are able to change this. To play Fortnite on Switch, please create a new account.”
