January 2019 Delistings: Tour De France, Ghostbusters, Tetris and More

By Rebecca Smith,
The end of the year always sees the delisting of a lot of titles as contracts and licensing agreements run out. January is always a quieter month, but it isn't immune to the process completely. January has seen a grand total of three Xbox One games, one Xbox Live Arcade game, and four Xbox 360 Games on Demand removed from the Microsoft Store. In slightly better news, there have been two Games on Demand added to the store.

None of the following titles were expected to be removed, and you can see the full list of delistings below. All of the games marked with ** have disc copies that can still be purchased from retailers.

In better news, the addition of the following titles to Backwards Compatibility means they're now available for purchase digitally from the Microsoft Store. The latter title was added this month. While the former title was added to Backwards Compatibility four months ago, it is only now available digitally.

We'll be back in March with the next round of delists, if there are any. However, if we get advance warning of any future delists, we'll be sure to let you know before they happen. On that note, developer Forgotten Key closed last month. While they promised to keep their console title AER - Memories of Old available "on every released platform indefinitely", you may want to bear in mind that this might not happen.
