Most of the games had released on or after April 1st, 2018 — and meanwhile these game developers gave their users an option to change their PSN Name to a New Name, and that caused no issue of displaying the name on the PSN network. Whereas, the older brands or the older developers still faced some issues while displaying the name if the users changed their PSN Name from the old one to the new.


By changing the PSN name to a new name, in most of the games, the major issue that occurred is that the older name popped up while you are in the game instead of the new one. Along with that one of the critical problem that you might face is that by changing your PSN Name, this may cause some serious problems like loss of your data, that is your saved contents, your leaderboard status and most important among them is that you may even lose the of access your paid DLC content.
