How to change your name in Minecraft 2.4.2
The name of the world’s most popular multiplayer game, Minecraft, is changing.
As of today, players can no longer change their names in Minecraft.
It will remain that way through the end of November, at which point the server will automatically rename the player’s character name to something less descriptive.
The change comes after an investigation by Blizzard’s Terms of Service team, which found that players’ names in the game were frequently misused, including by users who were abusing the game’s name generator.
In response to the issue, Blizzard has announced that players will be able to change their character names in a new character creation screen, which should also remove the need to re-enter their character’s name.
