...when the title of the game is clearly DiRT 2. All this time I thought that achievements had not been announced yet.

Just like games with "THE" in the title are listed under "T" which is not proper as far as alphabetizing. The Godfather should be listed under "G" not, "T"

Nonetheless, it should still be under "D" along side of the original DiRT.

Codemasters is a UK company. They named the game "Colin McRae: DiRT 2" - http://www.codemasters.co.uk/games/?pid=344 (UK site)

Maybe this has to do with media rights or something, maybe they can use the "Colin McRae" name only in the UK, I don't know.

This would be a bigger deal if x360a sorted their games alphabetically in the index, but they don't. Games are divided into genres and then sorted alphabetically. Stop being lazy and either bookmark this forum or Ctrl+F "Dirt 2".

I wasn't even aware that the achievements were out because I didn't see the game listed since I was looking under "D."...right next to the original DiRT. By the way, what I have seen is that all the games here are listed alphabetically and not by genre at all.

Sweet triple post there, old man. Now that you've got this investigation all figured out, please look for something else to nit-pick and complain about.
