R.U.S.E. was delisted from Steam on December 9th, 2015. It was likely delisted on PlayStation 3 around this same time. Although comments from Ubisoft explain that the game was removed due to expired licensing of “military items” featured in the game, the Xbox 360 version alone has remained available to download.
“Due to the expiration of licensing rights over certain military items within the game, R.U.S.E is no longer available for purchase. This does not, in anyway, affect players who already have the game in their library.”
– Ubisoft comment, PCGamesN
It is unknown if this content was originally included or was able to be patched out of the Xbox 360 version. It is also possible that the terms of licensing on the Xbox Marketplace somehow exempted the game from being removed.
