How to change your name in Splitgate is a question that a lot of players are asking at the moment as they boot up the futuristic first-person shooter for the first time.

While back in its Arena Warfare days, long before Splitgate released on consoles, PC players looking to change their in-game name simply needed to click the Steam icon on the bottom right of their screens, navigate to their profile and edit their profile name. A couple of years, an Xbox and PlayStation launch, and a crossplay voice chat feature added later, it was clear 1047 Games had to make some changes in the username department to make things work.

Here's a breakdown of if players can change their names in Splitgate.

How to Change Your Name in Splitgate: Is it Possible?

When players, both new and old, fired up Splitgate after its release on console, not only did they notice that the queue times had become insane, but also that they had to confirm their in-game name.

This was done to make everything organized and uniform in order for the game to be able to support the cross-platform and cross-gen features that it does currently.

Unfortunately, it also appears that this was a one-time deal, with there not being a way for players to change their name within the game. Hopefully, this is something that 1047 Games takes into account down line considering that the game is still in beta.
