Microsoft has announced that they are recycling nearly one million of unused Xbox Live Gamertags and will re-release it starting at 11:00am PST Wednesday, May 18, which translates to 11:30pm IST of the same day.

The reason for doing so is these Gamertags were left unused from the original Xbox era. These will be released over a 24-hour period “to give players worldwide a chance”. Anyone with an active Xbox Live Gold subscription and at least one year of cumulative Gold subscriptions can use them.

Although the firm didn’t share the actual list, for obvious reasons, they did note that many of the available Gamertags are in the following categories:

  • Proper Names
  • Pop culture references (Entertainment, sports, gaming)
  • Types of Food
  • Geography and Travel
  • Science and Technology
  • Math and Numbers
  • Animals
  • Some of the greatest inventions
    of all time

Access to these newly-released Gamertags will be available on Xbox.com soon. You can also use Xbox.com, the Xbox App on Windows 10 or Xbox One to make the change.
