Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams was last confirmed available on Xbox 360 on May 17th, 2017 and was delisted some time between that date and December 11th, 2017. The developer, Blast Forest Games, is listed as the publisher on all other versions of the game including the “Director’s Cut” edition that was later released on PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Wii U, and Xbox One.
It appears they did not seek to relist or renew the game on Xbox 360. The free Trial Game of the Xbox 360 original remains available as of December 2017.
In Fall 2014 bitComposer Entertainment AG filed for insolvency protection after missing several game releases which put their financial standing in jeopardy. The company was dissolved in January 2015 but relaunched shortly after as bitComposer Interactive GmbH with new management and investors. According to bitComposer’s homepage several “major assets” and “name rights” were lost over the course of these events resulting in several delistings. Many of these titles have reappeared with new publishers but not on all of the original release platforms. See the list of titles published by bitComposer for more details.
