Pool Nation was delisted from Xbox 360 in December of 2015 according to reporting from TrueAchievements.com. Publisher Mastertronic fell afoul of a bad investment deal in February of 2015 and would file for bankruptcy Administration in November of the same year. By December their published Xbox 360 titles would be removed from digital release.
In most cases the original developer or another publisher would bring these titles back to sale but Pool Nation was not one of them. Cherry Pop Games instead focused on the Steam and PlayStation 4 updates of Pool Nation and let Pool Nation FX represent the franchise on Xbox One.
