  1. Inactive Gamertags


    How long does an account have to be inactive for in order to revoke a Gamertag and give it to someone else? I want to change my Gamertag to Cassassinate and I've seen that the player has been inactive since 2008. Is it possible to do such a thing?
    I'd appreciate any help I can get.

    :)

    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.

    Sorry to hear dimitri. However, as your issue seems to be completely different from the OP's can you please create a new thread detailing it exactly for further assistance tailored just to you?

    Thank you.
