    Hi,

    Only some old gamertags from the original Xbox has been released, Microsoft let at least 10 years to release them… That's could be the reason why you are not able to pickup your wanted gamertag...

    Some people have old accounts they sign in to every few years. This keeps the tag from becoming available again. I think its like 7-10 years before a gamertag will be available after it's been dormant.

    It is 5 years after no-use when they are freed up.

    Some gamertags will not be available if no one else has it. as the system is programmed to pick up certain words etc.

    Even if the gamertag is not being used on xbox it is still attached to a Microsoft account that is used for other products of Microsoft.
