    Fortnite showing wrong gamer name and can't play on different profile


    We recently purchased an XBox One. We have 3 different profiles, mine being the one associated with Gold. My son wanted his fortnite on so he could play it so I installed it while logged in with my profile '' and we linked his Epic Games acocunt
    which has his own profile name. But now, when he plays fortnite, it shows he's playing as '' with all his skins. We can't figure out how to change the display name to his Epic Games profile name. I don't understand how you can link your Epic account
    to an Xbox profile and it doesn't show your Epic gamer name.

    Has anyone else had this issue?

    Thanks!

    :)

    Fortnite good or bad?: I don't like this style of play where you don't have a set goal, except to kill other players, in my opinion it's tiring and repetitive. 14f09a69-8a45-4124-a0a1-0fce7cb115e5
