  1. Having a double gamertag issue


    Hi all,

    I did change a couple of days ago my gamertag,

    right now i'm having 2 gamertags showing up seperatly on my acount.

    Is there a way to fix this, its really annoying, i can see the new gamertag, but all my friends see the old one.

    so when i look on my profile it first shows the new one and under the new one is my old one...

    i cant do anything..

    regards

    :)

    The other gamertag was with an # aswell.

    in games i know it could take a long time, i did see that with my other account, it still shows my old gt aswell on games but not on xbox.

    Like i can see all the other people who have changed they'r gamertag with an # normally like no 2 gamertags.

    maybe its indeed a server with the old system.

    like on here now it shows , thats old.

    both accounts are on the same region (europe)

    If more people have 2 gamertags because of the change, ill wait till the updates are done next year.

    regards and thanks for the answers.

    It depends on which servers your accounts are, as Microsoft is transitioning their servers bit by bit. So maybe your other gamertag was stored on a server that has already moved to the new system.

    Or, in order to allow people to get already taken Gamertags, the new system adds a small number to the gamertag, like Discord or Battle.net already does.

    Maybe your other new gamertag was not taken yet, and you got a new Gamertag without number, as the name was unique.

    ok thank you for your message, the odd thing is when i did change my other account his gamertag it did work normal.

    no other gamertag under it..

    it only happend with this one, thats why i found it a bit strange.

    When i login on the xbox website with this gamertag what i changed it shows me the old gt still, but on my second account where i also changed the gamertag, when i login it shows up with the new gamertag.

    regards

    Xbox is currently changing the Gamertag system.

    During that transition period, you might see your old gamertag as well as your new one.

    Current and older games that don't know of the new Gamertag system will still show your old Gamertag. And it can take until 2020 until the full transition to the new Gamertag system works in all games.

    So currently what you see is not an error. It's just how Gamertags are handled during this transition to the new Gamertag system.

    Hey BSAA

    Thank you for taking the time to post this on the Xbox Forums. We understand that you are experiencing difficulties with your Gamertag displaying different on various platforms.

    It is as Xbox Forums Ambassador ArminatorX stated, depending on the game and platform you are using, it can also vary how your Gamertag will
    be perceived by others. A few games released this year might support the new format, but most games won’t until 2020 and beyond. It may take a few years to migrate all new games over to the new Gamertag format.

    You can find this information on the
    Gamertag update FAQ
    . As there is no further information that we can provide on this matter, we will now be locking this thread. If you have any other questions or concerns, that differ from this, please, feel free to create a new thread
    and we will cater to you there.

    Thank you for being part of the Xbox Family and we wish you a wonderful day!
