  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.

    :)

    Inactive Xbox Live Gamertag

    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.
