This happened to me as well, apparently it is a known issue that has never been fixed by Epic. Basically, your gamer profile of GoW2 has become corrupted. This can happen for some readon, particularly when you play split-screen with another player. The good news is there is a fix so you can play GoW2 again. The BAD news is, all of your progress towards achievements will be lost. For example, the 100,000 kills one, 1999 mulitplayer matches one etc. Details are on this page:

I had to do this and was gutted because I had about 20,000 kills, which took a long time to rack up. Hopefully you havent progressed too far so don't have much to lose!

Edit: Be aware you will also lose your multiplayer rank if you do the fix

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.

Great! Thanks for marking this as the answer.
