Ubisoft and Techland have confirmed the existence of the next Call of Juarez game, subtitle “Gunslinger.” The sequel will apparently be returning to the Old West setting. The title will be arriving on PC, PS3 and X360 sometime in 2013, although it is not clear if this will be a full retail release for consoles. Check out the live-action teaser trailer below.
Not all is quiet on the Wild Western Front. Ubisoft released the above image this morning in an apparent attempt to tease an announcement for Thursday, seemingly hinting at something related to Call of Juarez. The promotional image appears to lean more in the direction of the older games in the series than the recent entry, The Cartel, which we were not particularly big fans of. Either way, there should be an official announcement on the Call of Juarez FaceBook page tomorrow.
What do you think about revisiting this franchise again so soon? Does gaming need a strong Western IP, or should they just stop trying? Will anything ever top Red Dead Redemption? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
