With the launch of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 1, lots of players are experiencing issues with their screen not fitting on their TV. If this is you, then you'll want to follow our guide which will show you how to fix the Fortnite screen size issues on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
We came across this issue on an Xbox One when trying to play the new Season of Fortnite. For us, the screen size bug was able to be fixed by completely closing the game and reopening it. As the game loaded, we were offered the chance to adjust the screen size prior to loading into the lobby. However, it seems not all players are getting this lucky.
For now, it seems the Fortnite screen not fitting on TV bug is only affecting console players. Below you'll find a section devoted to adjusting the screen size on the PS4 and XB1.
