Why is Trials delisted? What IP does it have that would cause that?
Agreed. Additionally - What is the MS incentive to test and approve it for BC, if they're not going to make it (and DLC) available digitally? Shouldn't these be opportunities to cash in on BC?

I just viewed Maka's guides for the Squirrels Achievements - I need these DLC's somehow.

I just hope the DLC is available for Evo.... The original Trials HD is BC but it doesn't let you play the DLC, which is over half of the game. The only 3 achievements I have left in EVO, are for DLCs... Fingers crossed.

I feel I’m repeating myself, but I haven’t had any trouble playing DLCs in Trials HD with backwards compatibility?

Same here...
Trials HD dlc worked fine, never downloaded it on the 360 - maybe the licence isn't transferring properly.

My guess would be that Trials Evolution has a title screen song (and maybe other songs in the game) that could have expired licences which I presumed caused the delist. I could be wrong though.

There are other delisted games that are BC (e.g. Forza Horizon) although that may have been delisted after the fact. However I also think there are others such as Axel and Pixel that also went BC after the delist (if I recall that one correctly).

Can anyone confirm that if you owned the DLC for Evo that it's backwards compatible as well? Hell of an add!

Yes, I installed both of the DLC's. Also wanted to mention for anyone that still has access to the game on 360 (and Gold), you can move your downloaded tracks to the cloud for quick and easy access on the One.

I would assume it was music, it just seems odd as few games ever run into this issue. To note, I haven't played the game, I was just curious as to what had caused the delist.
No God, know fear. Know God, no fear.

Just a note to anyone who was excited about Trials on back compat, at least two of us that were using 360 cloud saves have found that all of our progress has been reset:

Back compat and 360 cloud saves?
