    Gamertag name change


    Hi! I wanted to create a gamertag with a specific name, one i didn't think anyone uses thus being avalible almost everywhere. But I saw that the name I wanted was already taken. Looking into the account I believe that it hasnt been used for over 12 years.
    Is there any way microsoft can give me that name and maybe change the other accounts name and add a 1 or something? Or will this account forever have this name making it impossible for any other gamertag to have the same name?

    :)

    Microsoft is changing your name? Gamertag? Could be a forced gamertag change, in which case that name is against code of conduct, and you cannot use that name

    Changing Gamertag / Name

    Yes once you change a rag, it will be freed up for use (may not be immediate though).

    The only way it would be freed up is if the original owner changes it to something else, or as of August 30, 2019, if they do not use their Microsoft account for 2 years, it will be closed which should free up the tag. The tag system is in use on other Microsoft
    services, so even if it's not in use on an Xbox, it may be in use elsewhere.

    However, there has been a recent update to the gamertag system and you can use a tag even if it is already in use. https://support.xbox.com/my-account/manage-gamertag-and-profile/gamertag-updates-faq

    My nametag

    If no one has the gamertag that you are wishing to get and you have not changed your name already, then you can change it to your desired name. If you have already changed your accounts gamertag then you will need to purchase a gamertag change or pay when
    you change your name.

    I have two gamertags on one profile. So confused...

    Did you change the gamertag or your account name? The name that it shows below the gamertag on the console is your name.
