On 1 March 2016, in an interview with PC World, Xbox executive Mike Ybarra (@XboxQwik) continued his crusade against Xbox's most loyal fans by boasting about how Microsoft has Xbox games on enemy platforms iOS and Android already and how they hope to bring even more. Not only is it bad enough that they already have betrayed Xbox gamers on Windows Phone by even putting Xbox games on enemy platforms in the first place, but to boast about it in a public interview at a time when it has been almost a year since Microsoft Studios released a single game on Windows Phone is disgusting. Let him, @XboxP3, and @SatyaNadella know that this is not okay.

Trueachievements reported this last month.. here is the snippet from the article (can't post links as a newish user):

Delistings

Windows Phone doesn't seem to be having a great time at the moment and we're losing titles quicker than we can replace them. Three more have disappeared recently: Mirror's Edge (WP), Rabbids Go Phone (WP) and SPY Mouse (WP) have all been removed from the Windows Phone store for unknown reasons.

It hasn't been covered here, but there have been a number of delists from Microsoft Game Studios and various EA Mobile publishers, including EA Mobile, EA, and Chillingo. Bandai Namco also delisted every single one of their offerings still left in the store. Ice Age Village was also recently delisted, presumably due to license.

Yet another non-Xbox enabled release for GameTroopers - Ludo Blitz. They have said they haven't abandoned Xbox on Windows Phone, however, and plan to add achievements at a later date for their most recent releases.

Minecraft: PE get Xbox Live Achievements on iOS and Android, but not Windows Phone!

One would've thought, with Microsoft owning Mojang and Windows Phone that Xbox Live achievements would've come to Minecraft: Pocket Edition on Windows Phone back when the game launched in December 2014. It didn't, but we Windows Phone fans held out hope that they'd add them eventually. Now, it appears that Mojang has finally brought Xbox achievements to Pocket Edition, not for the Windows Phone version of the game, but actually for competing platforms iOS and Android only.

It's been frustrating watching Microsoft stab Windows Phone fans in the back by continually releasing more apps, better quality apps, and more features on competing platforms but not on their own, and this is an egregious continuation of that. If you feel so inclined to complain, I guess I'd start with these Twitter accounts:
•@Minecraft
•@Mojang
•@XboxP3 (Phil Spencer, head of Xbox)
•@shannonloftis (Shannon Loftis, head of Microsoft Studios)
•@jeb_ (Jens Bergensten, developer at Mojang)
•@shoghicp (Shoghi Cervantes, developer at Mojang)
•@_tomcc (Tommaso Checchi, developer at Mojang)

Update: Mojang has officially confirmed that they are not bringing Xbox integration to Minecraft on Windows Phone.
