Le Tour de France 2009 was delisted from Xbox 360 in January of 2019 according to reporting from TrueAchievements.com. It was delisted in the same month as other Tour de France titles from 2009 through 2013. Newer titles in the series remained available at the time, indicating the delistings were likely due to rolling licensing from the Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO), the French media group who runs the Tour de France.
Unlike newer titles in the series which were released on physical media, this 2009 entry was exclusive to Xbox Live Arcade and as such is considered Extinct.
