  1. Inactive Gamertags


    Since last August 30, the old gamertags inactive for more than two years had to be put back "on the market". But the gamertag I want is taken by someone who has not connected to xbox live since 2010 and
    is still unavailable. Could someone from microsoft give us more details about this information? Thank you

    :)

    Original gamertag is inaccessible & GLITCHED due to a inactive spaced version

    Inactive spaced gamertags should be removed and released. They are inactive, 100 percent inactive place holding gamertags.

    In this article, Microsoft teases that they may be releasing inactive Gamertags. Is it just false hope?

    "Will you be releasing old, inactive Gamertags for use on the Xbox One?

    WHITTEN: We’ve released inactive gamertags in the past, but it’s been a while. Stay tuned."

    The article is admittedly old, but it is from after they released inactive Gamertags the first time.

    Getting a gamertag that's taken but not in use?

    Microsoft cannot and will not release an inactive gamertag because you want it. You'll have to wait until they free up the inactive gamertags. And no one besides Microsoft has any idea when they'll do it.

    I know of a gamertag that's being held, not used

    Zune :)

    If its an "Original Gamertag" that is silver and looks inactive, it most likely belongs to a fanatic who collects these types of gamertags. Technically nothing can be done since it belongs to someone. Even if the account is inactive.
