    I want to retrieve my passed away brothers account


    My brother passed away a few months ago and I had to go through his xbox. Is there anyway I can get access to his account so I can play on it and continue what he started.

    :)

    Brother Passed Away

    Ser Collop, I don't think your husband would get mad that you bought games on your brother's account so your brother whom past away could play them.

    As you understand from gamesharing family. There's no harm in doing that.. I feel your little brother wouldn't get the account banned like what smwutches mention.

    However like other ambassadors mention you can't transfer digital games. If you could. Then that would be heavily abused. Just like steam games and blizzard account once the item is bounded on the account. Can not be removed or traded.

    Sorry to hear about your brother.

    Unfortunately accounts and digital content are not transferable. Its actually a violation of the code of conduct to give away accounts so your other brother would be at risk for having the account banned if he were to use it.

    If you did not want to lose access to your brothers games on his account you will need to continue game sharing with that account. There is no way to transfer digital game license from one account to another.

    My account got banned for communications when I was at work earlier today, so I added a pass key to it, in case my little brother got on my account while I was away at work

    if you want to play game pass on pc you must use your brother's account since your account does not have this service since the purchase was made with your brother's account
