    All players should be able to express themselves proudly in their native language. We’re making a change to empower players around the world with more choice in how they represent themselves. We are updating gamertags to a 12-character maximum, Unicode-based name of your choice with an auto-generated suffix. We now offer 11 different alphabets for gamers, which support over 200 languages worldwide.

    Existing gamertags will remain unchanged with no suffix and no action required unless the player wants to make a change.

    New Xbox players, or players who want to change, can register a gamertag of their choice up to 12 characters. If it’s already taken by someone else, we will assign a suffix with numbers to differentiate you from other people with the same name. Where it’s displayed, we will also auto-format the gamertag to show the suffix in a more subtle, different font so that focus will be on the name you chose when the suffix is shown.



    We’d like your feedback on the expanded features and anything you’d still like to see changed with Xbox gamertags, and here’s some notes to keep in mind as part of the discussion:

    • Please read this FAQ for more details of the gamertag changes we’re making.
    • No one can claim your existing gamertag, you will continue to show in the same way that you do now going forward.
    • Updated gamertags are not available on the Xbox One console yet, but will be before the end of this year, they will show up first in the new Xbox PC app and in Game Bar on Windows 10 PCs (Win+G).
    • It will take time for games to start support the gamertag changes, a few games might support updated gamertags this year, but most games won’t support them until sometime in 2020.
    • We won’t be exceeding the 12 character limit, though gamertags can be shorter.
    • The updates to gamertags won’t allow users to change their gamertag constantly to avoid being found, users get a free change but after that they must still pay to change their gamertag.
    • We’re open to more ideas and would love to hear your feedback about this new change. Please let us know of anything you’d like to see that’s not part of today’s gamertag updates!

    We can’t promise to deliver on all of the good ideas you may have, but your input is invaluable to help us to find new scenarios and prioritize what we work on. So tell us what you think, and share your ideas for changes you’d like to see in the future!

    15 Character Gamertag

    Today more one user can have the same gamertag, for that the #0000 in front of gamertag like the Nick name of Discord For exemple. Because this, the gamertag is limited today for 15 character I tink
    Partially true. Gamertags can have up to 12 (or 13) characters, if they choose one that's already taken, then they will be assigned a suffix.

    will it be possible to still use 16 character gamertags when changing it?

    Hi there,

    Regrettably, you will have to keep searching for that Gamertag you're looking for, if it's not available. Please take a look at Xbox Support's

    Gamertag Update FAQ
    , as it will likely answer any questions you may have.

    Xbox gamertag

    My gamertag is close to my name. I thought it was just because of the coronavirus that something was wrong. But, I'm not getting errors. It keeps saying it's not allowed. I really want to use this gamertag.
    There might be two reasons you can't use the Gamertag you want.

    One reason might be, that a person already uses your desired gamertag in a different "spacing". For example, if you wnat to have "Clever Nickname" (note the space between "Clever" and "Nickname"), but someone already took "Clevernick Name" (Note the space
    between "Clevernick" and "Name"), then all permutations of "Clevernickname" are blocked by that name. Be it "Cle Ver Nick Name" or "Clevernickname" or whatever.

    The problem is, that searching for a Gamertag will adhere to the spacing you use. So if you search for "Clever Nickname" it will not be found. However, trying to use "Clever Nickname" is blocked by the existing "Clevernick Name".

    Secondly, depending on what your name is that you wish to base your Gamertag on, it might be an offensive word in another language. Seemingly harmless words in one language might have an offensive meaning in another. For example the cartoon character "Porky
    Pig" in Germany is named "piggy thick" if you literally translate the German name it back to English. Try Google Translate to find out what "Thick" translates to in German.

    Maybe your name contains a string of characters that is an offensive name or word in another language.

    The Walking Dead: The Complete First Season - Language

    What language are you wanting support for? Most content will default to the official language of the country that it is purchased from. For example, if you live in Germany but have your gamertag set for US the game will default to English language.

    However, if you would like to request a refund you will need to contact phone support for more assistance.

    Have been trying to make this gamertag that reset in 2016 for years and it still won't let me create.

    If you cant use the word in your bio or any thing it is likely a forbidden word on the system and using it as a gamertag would result in a forced name change eventually. Perhaps tell us what the gamertag you want is and we maybe able to help more
