How to change your Epic Games display name

What is an Epic Games display name?

Your Epic Games display name is the name that appears on your account on the Epic Games Launcher, our official forum, AnswerHub, and when you play any of our games on PC/Mac, Switch, or mobile.   

Changing your Epic Games display name will not affect your PSN or Xbox Live gamertags/display names. To change your PSN or Xbox Gamertag please contact Sony or Microsoft for assistance.

If you’ve only played on console (PSN, Xbox, or Switch) and you want to create a display name for your Epic Games account, you will need to upgrade your account to a full Epic Games account. You can find instructions on how to do that here
