    Gamertag from inactive account

    Once a gamertag is acquired MS will not release the gamertag until that account has been completely inactive with anything to do with MS not just the xbox for 5 years from the last date that it was used. Keep in mind even if it may seem like a gamertag
    is inactive on the xbox console that does not mean that the MS account associated with that gamertag is not being used in something else associated with MS.
    Microsoft have recently updated their terms and it is now 2 years of inactivity and they will shut down the account.

    XBOX Live GamerTag inactive

    Adding to this, just because it is inactive on Xbox, does not mean that the Microsoft account is inactive. As long as they keep using the account, then the gamertag will stay attached.

    An account has to be inactive for two years now, before the account is closed.

    like all the inactive accounts the gamertag on them will be avaible
    As long as they are completely inactive across all Microsoft products and services. If they are in use still on anything else, like outlook, email, office etc then they will stay attached to that account.

    Xbox gamertag and inactive account update

    As of 30th of August, if I recall correctly

    They are also phasing in a new gamertag system, so you will be able to have whatever you want (as long as it's within the code of conduct)
