Whether on PC or console, there are limitations as to whether or not we are able to make changes to your CMDR's name. Please select your platform below for more information.
If you wish to change your commander name in-game you can restart your save game. Currently, this is the only option to perform a name change manually.
To do this, go to the Main Menu, select Options and then select Clear Save.
WARNING: Selecting Clear Save will delete your Commander and all your progress.
Once you have done this the Create New Player screen will appear and you will be able to choose a new Commander name.
If you need to change your name for a specific reason please submit a ticket to the Customer Support team by clicking the button below with the reason for your request and a shortlist of your preferred options in your preferred order.
Please be aware that these changes are limited and should only be requested under special circumstances.
Repeated name change requests may result in your existing name being locked in place, with no option to adjust it in the future.
We do not rename CMDRs for clan purposes.
Your gamertag is your commander's name on Xbox One.
We cannot change the name for you. If you would like another commander name you will need to create a new gamertag with your desired name and a copy of Elite Dangerous for Xbox One.
Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to change your in-game name on the PS4™.
Your CMDR name will display as your PSN ID when registering. If you wish to change your CMDR name, you will need to contact Sony to change your PSN ID. This will then be reflected in-game.
