Hi malchello,

Unfortunately there is no way merge or link two separate GT's. If you wanted to use that second GT on your account that has Lost Planet two on it, checkout our Switch a gamertag to another Microsoft account support article. That will walk you through the process. 

Let us know how that goes, or if you have any more questions.

I think your answer is for xbox users? im using PC this is not working for me as there is no account security option or anything that leads to whatever that guide is telling me to do

Maybe u got a diff link to make this work on Games For Windows Live?

Click on "My Account" on the top right of this page, then go to change gamertag. It will cost $10 (USD) to make the change, and you will need to change the gamertag you want to something else first, or else it will just tell you the name is in use.

Hey malchello,

You are correct about that being steps for the Xbox console.

Unfortunately there is not currently a method for performing that MSA swap using Games for Windows Live.

Of course, with GFWL closing by next summer, you'll no longer have access to those game anyways. If you wish to switch the tags around, you may wish to download your profiles onto a friend's console (Your GFWL profile is also an Xbox, Win8, and WP profile).

As I understand it, steam will adjust the games to work without GFWL, but you won't get the Xbox achievements when that happens. Here's a link to Steam's community site talking about how they handled Batman: steamcommunity.com/.../1909817119598626547
