Sony blocks Fortnite players from transferring progress to Nintendo’s Switch

Today's Nintendo Direct announced that Fortnite is headed to the Switch - and it's available right now. It doesn't look like there'll be any Nintendo-specific content for the platform, but it also doesn't seem like anything's been removed or streamlined to make the game work for the Switch, which is impressive. In fact, if you have an Epic Games account for Fortnite on PS4, you can't use that same account on Switch or use any of the cosmetics you've paid money for.

Epic Games hasn't said anything publicly about revenue from "Fortnite". With several famous celebrities co-signing the addicting game, Fortnite picked up a long list of free support.
