  1. Do Xbox Administrators plan to prune inactive gamertags/accounts anytime soon?



    After speaking with a Microsoft virtual agent, they said a username I wanted was claimed by an inactive account. It would make my day if inactive gamer tags would be freed up to people who would use them. It's not even a big request because they have done it in the past! Upvote if there is a username taken by an inactive account that you want!

    Gamertag from inactive account

    Once a gamertag is acquired MS will not release the gamertag until that account has been completely inactive with anything to do with MS not just the xbox for 5 years from the last date that it was used. Keep in mind even if it may seem like a gamertag
    is inactive on the xbox console that does not mean that the MS account associated with that gamertag is not being used in something else associated with MS.
    Microsoft have recently updated their terms and it is now 2 years of inactivity and they will shut down the account.

    XBOX Live GamerTag inactive

    Adding to this, just because it is inactive on Xbox, does not mean that the Microsoft account is inactive. As long as they keep using the account, then the gamertag will stay attached.

    An account has to be inactive for two years now, before the account is closed.

    Xbox Live Gamertags

    Maybe they will do another inactive account sweep and free up more gamertags around the release of the next xbox?

    Inactive gamertag wanted!

    inactive accounts have a long life span, don't hold your breath for it anytime soon.
