Close gaming accounts and cancel gaming subscriptions

If the deceased owned video game systems or played games on their computer, there may be active subscriptions or recurring payments.

There may be multiple video game subscriptions and recurring payments to cancel on a single device or system.

Video game subscriptions may be connected with a specific platform - Xbox, Playstation, etc. - or they may be tied to services, rentals, or publishers.

If the deceased had a recurring subscription to any gaming service, cancel or transfer the account to prevent unwanted bills and to preserve their gaming data.

Make sure that all final payments have been made so as to not pay interest on overdue charges.

See the below links for more information about how to manage the account of common gaming services.
