SoulCalibur II HD has recently been delisted from the Microsoft Store for unknown reasons, despite the game being backwards compatible on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. The first SoulCalibur for the original Xbox has also been removed.
Released for Xbox 360 in 2013, the HD version included two of the three guest characters, and it's thought that the inclusion of Todd McFarlane comic book character Spawn, could be a legal sticking point. As for the removal of the first game, that's anyone's guess.
Of course, if you already own SoulCalibur II HD, you can download it and play it, but if you were hoping to purchase the game, you're out of luck. That is unless you can secure a download code from a retailer. SoulCalibur II HD for Xbox 360 features guest characters Heihachi (from the PS2 version) and Spawn (from the Xbox version). When it originally launched, the GameCube version came with Link from Nintendo's Zelda series. For obvious reasons, he's not in the Xbox 360 release.
SoulCalibur II HD being delisted was spotted by Jon Cartwright who shared the development on Twitter. Hopefully, this is only a temporary thing, and Bandai Namco restores the game to the Microsoft Store soon.
