    Please release new inactive gamertags in order for me to be able to get my desired gamertag that is already linked to an inactive account. I wish to have " " to be reserved under my account in order for to have it once available.

    Request to Release new set of inactive gamertags

    You can not "reserve" a gamertag.

    Gamertags are used on other services,not just xbox live,so you have no way of knowing whether a gamertag is in use or not.

    Due to the new (ish) system that is in place there will be no more mass releases of inactive tags.

    As of August 2016 if a gamertag is not used on any of Microsoft services for 5 years then it may be freed up & as of August 2019 if the account that a gamertag is linked to does not sign into any of Microsoft services for 2 years then the tag may be freed up.

    The earliest any unused tag may be freed up is the end of this month (Aug 2021) so you will have to keep checking then.

    If not then you can have the desired gamertag with a hashtag & numbers after it.

    How to delete your old gamer tag

    I believe after a set amount of inactivity old Gamertags are deleted and made available to new players and people requesting to change their Gamertag.

    Is there anyway for Microsoft to reset a gamertag for me?

    Hey there,

    Thanks for posting1 We're unable to reset Gamertags over the forums, however keep in mind that inactive Gamertags are released every 5 years, but only if they've been inactive. Since these threads can turn into Gamertag request threads, this will be closed.
    Good luck!

    wants recycle iNJ gamertag.

    You cannot request to get an inactive gamertag. Microsoft periodically releases them so you will have to wait until they do.

    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.
